[DT]eBay Hit Hard by Boycott, Refuses to Change - Page 3

post #21 of 43
Yeah, I had a store on eBay, I closed it awhile ago.

If you sell on eBay, you are screwed!

ALSO! I don't know if you guys know this, but sellers can no longer leave negative feedback for buyers!

Totally agree, google has sorta turned to crap. I don't know why, but I've still been using it, time to change that maybe. It's amazing the 10's of thousands of results you get that have no value whatsoever. You have to refine your search, again and again, adding more and more search terms and exact phrases, to come up with relevant results. Then by the time you've added so many terms to narrow it down, you probably inadvertently got rid of some actual good links. I look at the results thinking how rediculous and completely worthless 95% of them are, it's stupid.

As for ebay I've never bought or sold anything on it. Unless they ever make it so you cannot get scammed, which I doubt cause that would mean some actual responsibility from ebay, hurting their bottom line, they'll never get a penny from me. I think they should be boycotted for that, and be forced to make some guarantees. It's little scams inside of one big ass scam, called ebay IMO.

This sucks. Many times I go to EBAY only because that is the only place I can find the more rare items.

The "wait-until-buyer-gives-you-A+++-to-leave-them-feedback" thing was bullcrap though, it doesn't look like there's an easy fix to that.

A lot of sellers were doing that and if you go on there once to buy something from a crappy seller you all of a sudden have a terrible feedback record.

One thing I always did to save on ebay fees was jack up shipping, since final value fees don't count on shipping.

I usually charged 2 - 3X my cost for shipping. Typically it costs me around 8 - 15 bucks for shipping, I'd charge anywhere from 25 - 50.

I also did a little bit of market research on this in commodity items, and it seems that buyers WILL compensate for the higher shipping with lower bids, but on average, the sellers who charge more for shipping end up w/ more total money in the end.

ebay suspended my account indefinitely for no reason at all, and their customer support is absolutely the worst customer support I have ever encountered.
