    eBay Wants Its Sellers Back


    I have been on ebay for over a decade.

    100% feedback.

    And since I am just like ebay, in that I will not ship for free, I am punished. My listings hidden.

    We do not need the DSR's

    Isn't 100% positive feedback, ID verified, and over a decade, a pretty good seller?

    And I am just like ebay, in that I will accept checks. But I am punished if I say so.

    And a seller on ebay for a month, with a negative, is rated as a Best Match, over me. Because they ship free.

    And ebay wonders why I don't like ebay anymore?

    And ebay allows one of their millions of fake users to sign in, and buy it now.

    Bad email address. Fake home address. Fake phone number, ruined my listing that had 15 watchers, and they would only allow me to post positive feedback.

    And they wonder why...

    And ebay posts millions of ads that compete with listings.

    And they wonder why...

    So many people who loved ebay, now hate ebay.

    Dump them.

    • How true!

    • AMEN If Ebay wants sellers back they need to get rid of Hidden DSR Ratings and the no negative for the buyer.

        watch your mouth!!!! you!

        Stick with the facts, and stop using foul language....understood?

        YOU ARE A DOOFUS! Plain and simple.


        You forgot to mention the forthcoming sale of skype to microsoft, and several other important eBay facts:

        Some ebay facts:

        -ebay shares never have and never will drop below $10 a share.
        -eBay is the largest employer in the United States
        -eBay has received a 3 billion dollar bailout from Obama

        -eBay is the epitome of customer service excellence
        -ebay is a safe investment: It's the economy, stupid!
        -ebay is an internet giant, it will exist forever.

        -ebay has always won never and will never lose a lawsuit.
        -ebay controls the internet: it owns eBay, Paypal and Skype.
        -ebay values freedom of speech, due process and free and fair trade.
        -ebay seller fees have decreased.

        -the feedback system on ebay is fair and does not discriminate against sellers.
        -ebay hardly ever suspends sellers.
        -If a seller is suspended, they are automatically reinstated after 5 days (no more faxing documents needed).

        -ebay offers award-winning phone support to assist sellers and buyers.
        -Paypal does not hold sellers money for 30 days.
        -ebay values sellers, treats them with dignity, courtesy and respect.

        -selling on ebay is fun, easy and hassle-free.

        DO NOT BELIEVE the naysayers, who say, the current rise in shares is merely a result of the cash bailouts by the US government!

        THE END TO ALL HARDSHIP has arrived, from mid-next week on, the eBay shares will RISE consistently, well over $15 and reach $20 by the end of the month.

        The financial market in the U.S. has fully stabilized now, the shares of almost any company will rise again (We are actually in a Bull market situation).

        A solid performance this week, now at over 10$, even after a weaker earnings report,underline the substance of eBay,

        mathematically it can never go below $10, which means it is a solid investment.


        Now is the time to buy!


        Special Warning to pdrobinson:

        If I find ONE MORE POST YOU MAKE, pdrobinson, that is too critical about eBay, you will be reported to the eBay Trust & Safety Department. They will locate your email address and then SUSPEND BOTH YOUR EBAY AND PAYPAL ACCOUNTS, understood?!

        I am sure that is NOT what you want, right?

        eBay can MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR from the Internet forever…!!!

        So watch out, I WILL report you to eBay!


    • eBay stock is realistically at 35 dollars.

      For Ebay:

      There is even a realistic target at $65, but I am conservative.

      eBay should be rated higher, that's for sure.

      As we can see today the stock has been doing great.

      I predict the ebay stock do rise by the end of the week to
      about $25 and by March to be at $45 a piece.

      I notice that most of the comments are posted by sellers. I am writing from a buyer's perspective; and I love ebay. Why? specifically because of all the complaints: With ebay I have a greater choice of items (and sellers) that I will ever get from some of the private online stores. That is because there will always be sellers willing to deal, unlike those "power sellers" that have posted on this blog. The best way to get anything free on ebay is to do the following: bid on an item, wait 5 days, file a claim against the ebay seller, leave negative feedback, provide a phoney paypal transaction number. The poor seller will be more than happy to now send you the merchandise FREE, since, in return, you promise you will agree on a MFW a mutual feedback withdrawal. A seller is helpless, as ebay suspends sellers, for as little as 3 negatives received, even, if they get 1000 positives in the same timeframe. ebay and paypal ALWAYS rule against sellers, so a buyer can do what they want. Once you receive the FREE merchandise, be nice enough to let ebay and paypal know you got it, and move on to the next seller on ebay you can con. My friends and I have used this approach often, and gotten great merchandise, psp, iphones, playstation games and more. Thanks ebay. Now, I read the feedbacks of sellers, whose items I ant to bid on. In leaving, I see the comments listed and am sympathetic with the sellers position, but I remind you that it is a consumer market and the buyers on ebay are your rulers.


      Dishonest buyers can now get anything free on eBay following the simple
      formula: With the new Feedback rules being implemented at eBay, It is the
      perfect time to start getting something for nothing from eBay, while playing their own game. (or at least what they are encouraging:

      Rules: eBay 1) Find item you would like to bid on eBay 2) Place Bid on the item
      eBay 3) Pay for and receive the item eBay 4) Post negative Feedback eBay 5)
      Have Seller issue refund eBay 6) Retract Feedback if you want eBay

      The above method will actually cause 2 effects.
      1) you stand a excellent chance of getting your item(s) for FREE!
      2) this will also cause sellers eventually stop using eBay once they realize they can not make a living in this environment. Mass Exodus to ebid, ioffer, ecrater, bonanzle, etc.

      If you use the Pay Pal service you can easily prove item was paid for removing any unpaid item strikes. If any are even incurred. Most sellers are so relived to have a negative strike removed very few even report an item as unpaid. With ’s new Feedback system, bad buyers are playing within the rules they have set. But then again, who wants to trade in such a hostile environment, facing discrimination, unwarranted suspension as well as (newly implemented) random suspension of sellers.
