I had to laugh when I went to the ebay shop to look into their adherence to eBay Shipping Best Practices (or lack thereof)

I found they wanted a whopping $9.98 to ship an ink pen.  That’s anywhere from at least 2 to at least around 9-10 times the legitimate cost to ship a pen.

But the fun just starts there. They also have a non-encrypted page for you to enter your credit card details and other personal info.

The EbaY Shop Checkout page does not use https protocol

The screencapture shows the complete shipping fees area highlighted in pink since the informations panel covered it partially. The red shows the lack of encryption on their checkout page. Click for a larger view.

Keep up the good work ebay, and thanks for sticking to those “Industry Standards”. ;p
