I knew it has gone down hill... Haven't bought there for years. Except maybe when looking for chincy green lazers or some such junk. Heck.. now I'd just go to Alibaba. I haven't sold anything for much longer. Once Bay acquired Paypal and was double taxing everything I said goodbye. I was hesitant.. but ended up firing up the old account to sell off some old( well NIB) light fixtures I had in the attic. Was all " your listing cost $0.00" for a fixed price listing.. ran that bad boy for a month. Shipping/printing labels was also much easier and streamlined.. still skeptical.. was too easy to be free. Maybe made $150 bucks.. minus paypal fees... and paying for postage(paid up front at time of label printing). Oh, and my 100% seller rating expired since I haven't sold over the past 6 months.. so Paypal decided to hold the money for over 2 weeks! (After they already took a cut out themselves they also kept the rest of the money for a nice interest free 2 week+ loan.. Sweet deal!) Now I get an "invoice" for $35 from ebay. Listed in the breakdown are even "shipping fees" ?? assuming from the convenience of printing a label.. Didn't bother to sit down and see how bad I was really taxed.. but dang.. I know we still have a couple Ebay'ers here.. what do you actually gross out of a sale?? I'm gonna just stick with cash deals and shady people on craigslist! Should I have read/re-read terms? yes. who's to blame? me. I just felt like whining.
