Still Stuck With Ebay Madness

Well, season is here but I am not a happy camper. After playing nice, paying my extra large fees all year long to Epig...they reward me by not allowing me to list any thing new or relist any of my items that roll off. Oh, and what listings are left they have decided not to "show" them to anyone on the internet. And I am paying for the honor of all of this...I just got a bill for $165.00 - which Ebay will grab out of my bank.

Last year at this time I has trying like mad to keep up with my mailings I had so many going out. Not this year. Yet Ebay gets paid. Wish someone would start a class action suit...I would surely sign up.

There was a tremendous outpouring of good will and love shown to me through a neighborhood group that I belong to, the Jewelry Neighborhood. Quite a few of the people there felt that what was happening to me was very unfair. So en mass they jumped in and bought stuff from me....and immediately gave me good feedback, along with only 5's FIVES on the dumb DSR star scores. So I am back to listing again, now I have to run and play catch up and try to make up for the last two weeks of non-posting hell that I've been put through.

Ebay has done this to thousands of people this past month, I am trying to establish myself on another venue.... http://www.TheBonz.com/Bejeweled120

So if any of you need good quality jewelry or plants....come make me an offer...just mention that you are a blogger and I will take 30% off...

Anyway, Bonanzle is growing like a weed...we just have to water it a little more, tell your friends about the new site...they have a very nice way about them, very friendly...it doesn't cost anything to list...only when you sell and then it's still cheap compared to Epig......

Yes, I have heard a lot of bad things about ebay. Sounds like they put money first and do not give a hoot about the sellers. Good luck with the new site.

There was another journaler who was very unhappy with E-bay I've heard mixed reviews, but sounds like you'll be better off on your new site.

Have a good weekend

You've succeeded in making me feel guilty for shopping on eBay. I recently purchased numerous antique paintings there. I guess the BigAsses who run eBay are getting too arrogant & bossy - like the ones at AOL. AOL is quickly going down the toilet and I'm sure eBay will, too, eventually......

I didn't realize eBay is that bad for sellers. I've thought about listing a few things on there, but I'm reluctant to do so now!

I am so sorry that things went so badly... I don't know much about this at all I guess.

Ebay has turned into a wasteland. I used to buy and sell quite a bit, but now only buy occasionally.
Sellers just get beat up. I was on over 10 years. Now, I just go to the chatboards, and shop only when I really need something as it seems many of the good sellers have gone away.

I haven't been on ebay in a long time... maybe that's a good thing!

I just wanted to stop by and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. May your day be filled with family, food and Love!
