Stop using eBay
Ok, as of today no more eBay for me, I was talking with one of their ex-employees at the zoo today, they live there now, you can find them in the ape exhibit, this employee said they are not to be trusted and to stay away and do you have a banana, it was really hard to keep their attention, but, I gladly report he is doing much better there. Hope this helps everyone.
Free new Ebay, PayPal, Ebay suspensions, PayPal limited, bus
There is a forum I found on the internet that is free, and helps with Ebay, PayPal, business and the law. Just post any question, the experts will answer it if it has not already been answered!
The forum has a lot of expert advice on it. http://www.modeeworld.com/forums I found advice there about how to avoid EBAY suspensions, get past PayPal limitations, also lots of detailed help on creating your own business, getting past trademark violations, VERO and lots more. Plus general advice on how best to sell on EBAY, what sells the best, how to get the best price for your product, really everything related to EBAY and internet business.
Also advice about how EBAY really works and how PayPal really works. The inside scoop.
Beautiful forum. I was made a moderator of the forum and I love it!
Ebay is going to the dogs
yes i use ebay, daily. have since 2000, it used to be great - fun, nice honest people, now that ebay is so much for the buyers getting by with just about anything they can come up with, its definately time to move on, shame on ebay,shame on dis honest buyers ( and sellers) my gripe is bad buyers, and ebay letting them have the upper hand, you go to a local auction house, you bid, you buy, you dont return the item 20 days later , saying , well this doesnt look like it did on the table, i want a refund. GIVE ME A BREAK PEOPLE. one day i believe ebays going to last on the list, sonner the better, i think many of us unhappy sellers would just take the final leap & go, we'd be much better off. - would serve ebay right. let them & the buyers buy & sell from one another, sure there are good and bad in everything, but buyers are ripping off the sellers quite alot these days ...because they can. because ebay allows it to happen
fed up with ebay.
I use ebay usually when I get lazy or find a really good deal...
Yes, but not daily. I love ebay for buying and selling, I just wish sellers would realize we buyers are not dumb and quit trying to get us to pay $0.01 for an item while they charge $99.99 for shipping and handling! that irritates me to no end!!
BEEN BUYER AND SELLER SINCE 1999
I have been using ebay since 1999 and in the past few months it has gotten to the point that i have to find an alternative.
some of the worst changes to ebay
sellers cannot leave negative feedback about buyers, no matter how many times they rip you off.
sellers no longer have hardly any rights or protection from getting ripped off
Paypal became the only acceptable form of payment
Paypal hold funds until item is delivered or positive feedback is left even if freight shipping costs $1000
ebay charges 12 percent on shipping cost
I have had 7 bad transactions out of less than 20 in total in past month
5 years ago i would sell 6 of 10 items advertised within 1 week
lately i have been averaging 6 items sold out of 60 listings per month, overall sales prices are down and ebay and paypal fees have gone up.
last week i bought some ran for computer, all 4 chips were either incompatible or defective, i have to pay to return items even though listing was completely inaccurate.
i am fed up and need to find an AN OPTION.
I AM NOT A STE DEVELOPER BUT, WILL SOMEONE PLEASE CREATE AN ALTERNATIVE
Horrible Experience with Ebay-It is too Risky
A seller never sent me two items. I ended up being out over $50 and Ebay's "Buyer Protection" did not help at all. I had over 30 purchases prior to this. I've canceled my account since. It is too risky if you can randomly lose money because of a dishonest individual. Not to mention the stress of going back and forth to try to get the situation resolved. I looked back and the seller had a 99.2% positive rating but there were about 5 others who had similar experiences to mine. I now go to the stores myself or order from Amazon. It's too bad because there are some great things and great sellers on Ebay but I will not risk going through that experience again.
