Ebay is greedy, that's all there is to it. I found it funny how positive they tried to make the new changes sound...Lower listing fees...free gallery. Yeah thats great, but when you raise the fvf almost 2% it defeats the purpose.
If ebay is doing this to try to get rid of scammers, this is the worst way possible, it's just going to increase. Not being able to leave neg feedback for a buyer?! How stupid! So now I could go on ebay bid something sky high...email the seller, saying I better get it at this price or Ill leave neg feedback. And what protection does the seller have from this now...NOTHING!!!
Paypal possibly holding my money now...wow! Luckily I think I fall within their criteria of not having my money held, but how long will that last. It's like them saying...hey, thanks for making our business a sucess, but you're not going to get the money you earned just yet.
I wrote a post on this a few days ago, I got word of an ebay strike. This will only work if we get a lot of people involved. If you know someone who does the ebay thing...let them know.
EBAY STRIKE Feb 18th - 25th, don't list, sell, or buy
