Hell if I really know, because I haven't sold on eBay really in a long time to boot.
I barely ever go there anymore except to find stock, or sell off a niche item I know will be gone soon.
I just sell directly through my store anymore, tons of products using Amazon and iOffer.com etc.
Occasionally I would do a Bonanzle also. In fact I just sold some more off ioffer. So in other words, the other places have really got the traffic now.
eBay with its outrageous listing fees, possibly pissed off a very large community of former happy sellers. It seems they are dying a slow death.
What products you are talking about, can't turn much of a profit on eBay anymore since everyone is selling that same thing. On top of selling the same thing, the listing fees are taking 20% from every official sale. Then you'll find it's almost always at wholesale on top of everything.
Finally, given the profit margins are higher on merchant accounts such as Godaddy marketplace & Amazon; you are eventually going to find it's a waste of time to bother with eBay. You ought to go with someone else where the profit margins are there, and investigate the alternatives as well, since they are getting to be much faster.
