    So a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that ebay now adds a note
    under every single sale telling you to "ship by xxx date".
    Before they never told you to ship at xxx date. And when you don't mark as shipped
    within the time frame you set, it turns into a red message that says, "ship past due".

    Does this actually mean anything? I know for US Top rated sellers status, you now have to
    have 95%, but for Global, there doesn't appear to be anything. I've marked all my listings
    as "will ship within 1 day" so that's why I get that little reminder that it's past due if I didn't mark
    it as shipped by 1 day. Sometimes it's 2 or 3 days before I get it shipped out but I don't see any
    penalty for Global Top Rated status for not shipping out within 1 day. That red message just seems
    to be a very annoying notice.

    It used to be that you get 1 extra grace day for your item to show up due to post office problems but they're taking that away.
