It makes you wonder how many sellers are going to leave. Seems like a heavy bet to be making on ebays part in this kind of retail enviorment. Just tried to list a item and was told i had to offer paypal. Thanks! But i do not need anybody to hold my hand thru the transaction. What happened to the line (we are just a venue). It now has become clear that the insertions fees are comming back via paypal by all the people who feel they have to sign up. Not me! All my new listings are going to Ecrater. I have been there on a limited basis.... but from now on all the new listings are going there. Can't wait to see earnings for the past quarter..... next quarters could be interesting as well.
My credit card company and bank ask for more proof of fraud than PayPal requires. PayPal has taken my money for an insured item when the buyer won't file for insurance. They have also given refunds for non-delivery even when there is delivery confirmation. Ever try fighting that? Good luck! A bank or credit card won't do that without proof. PayPal/eBay is a conflict of interests - they will do whatever will get them the most money and to hell with the seller.
Rhodie, Your absoulutely right about the conflict of interest. All paypal decisions are made by ebay. The fact that they are two different names is just for billing and corrospondence and tracking. Everything else is the same!
Good business decision Ebay. Get rid of all the riff raff here. MoOst eyballs, you have to pay for it or go elsewhere dummies. Time is money. Let it sit unsold for years fools because of 6 cents..yeah you guys are real business men.
