I received bids ranging from £300 to £50 for this shipment. I wanted to accept the £50 bid immediately as it represented very good value. Opened the uShip form, booked it and assumed I could go back in when my vendor sent through the address and contact telephone numbers. Paid the booking/auction fee to uShip. Could not re-access the uShip form and no details to contact my service provider whose bid I had accepted. Therefore I had to include my vendor's telephone number in the email I sent to him and got red flagged. This was unfair as I had already booked my job through uShip and paid the auction fee. The site is therefore not user friendly enough for the real situations customers can get when using ebay: that you want to book a uShip job, but have not yet heard back from vendor with all the details.
