by giving you a nice fee hike! Laughing They raised the fees again. The usually do this every year in January. Looks like they are trying to cut out the little guys that built up their site. How much longer will people put up with the ebay antics?

More info here

I should have known better but I thought they must be lowering fees. Geesh what was I thinking. This is ebay after all. These hikes continue to hurt lower priced items.

Oh well la de da. No fees on here. Virtually no fees on your own domain.

In the past fee hikes were always announced mid-January and took effect on February 15.
NOW, it's announced earlier and takes effect on January 30th.

ALSO - don't forget ebay will be increasing store fees but they do that in July Very Happy

They learned that way not everyone runs from the site at the same time.

Well they took one of my post off cause I ask a dumb question like

I would love a 15% increase. I didn't get zip for a pay raise and now I'm getting less here at ebay.
Maybe its time to move on and put my stuff some where that doesn't cost anything.
I've heard of a place that is called is ecrater anyone heard anything about
it??

I was answer someone post that was complaining about the fees so I just ask a simple question and a few min. later they emailed saying the pulled it.
Man they are getting touching. Very Happy

I consider ebay a marketing tool not the solution.

Use ebay to your advantage.

Any time you mention another site by exact name eBay will put the post as soon as they become aware of it. I called ecrater a hole in the moon once and they pulled it and gave me a hard smack as well.

Sometimes one of the trolls that hides under the bridges reports you.

They do not reinforce their rules. Only arbitrarily.

Once somebody asked about alternative stores. I responded (among MANY other respondents) that you could, for example, get a domain name fromGoDaddy.com then direct it to a store of your choice (for example ecrater, or freewebs.com). My post was pulled within seconds, I got a nasty e-mail that they realize I may not be familiar with blah blah blah. The rest of the posts, that were much more explicit in their nature (long elaborations about how to get other on-line stores set up and hosted) were left in the thread.

Just recently, there were five or six rather LONG threads on eBay's store board about how to set up your St. Elsewhere site, yet NONE of these threads were pulled. Makes you wonder who loves me this much that they follow me everywhere and report my every breath! Must be some sicko(s). That is bad for their health...anger and hatred makes people really sick, while happiness and internal balance is healing.

The same is true for a company. The more they persecute people for speaking their mind freely, and the more they seem to be worried about possible competitive websites, the more it comes down at them, it is just a question of time. Razz

I once posted a thread about Canadians who mail from the USA and how to do it etc. It seemed to bring out every flag waver south of the border and I was accused of being everything short of a terrorist. The only topic I ever started that seemed never to end.

From then on my posts got reported, listings began to be pulled for no reason and I started getting harassed by eBay for one thing after another and eventually put in their back room where no one could find me.

What I did discover from reading the stores boards at eBay is that the site is chock-a-block with ignorant racist bigoted pigs. People who learned how or remember how to read and write are few and far between.

I had a posting pulled from there last week...don't know why. I never mentioned anything except something like how people over on the auction listings board were freaking out over a nickel fee hike. (They were!) My store over there was already closed by then, so I really didn't care.LOL
