I hate ebay

Post by glpg80 » Mon Oct 05, 2009 3:41 am

i hate all the idiots that send you stupid emails or PM's
the fees
they force you to use paypal which is 3-4% markup
and now you cant even look at expired listings for price references :smt011

place is so gay.

Dunno what you're talking about with looking up completed auctions...I just looked some up two seconds ago. There are things I do hate about eBay, but at the end of the day, when you want the most money for your gear or whatever you might be selling, eBay is the place to go.

very true - but the final value fee's kill most profits in the end i believe.

as far as the looking up thing - they dont archive auctions that have ended anymore. it just says "this auction has ended" and theres no link to the auction that expired. examples would be some of the older posts right here on the forum that have ebay references but they are long expired and cant be seen :(

unless there is a setting im missing in ebay - but im pretty sure its ebay themselves that changed this from what it once used to be.

You think your fees are expensive , you dont even want to look at business seller fees

60 days they keep the old auctions for, I think.

you know, i cant even imagine. if the demand on ebay wasnt so well known as a place for shopping via people from around the world i certainly wouldnt be bothering.

im going to start resorting to ebay as a last resort now. theres no way i can afford these fee's and keep a profit. i mean you take a hit on the products you sell, then there is the shipping/packaging then there is the forced paypal fee's of 3% then there is the final value fee's you pay at the end of each month.

thats outrageous. whatever happened to ebay costing you $5 to post something and shipping it - done.

its not worth messing with anymore to be honest :roll:
