I'll tell you why - I'm a power BUYER who stopped buying. WHY? Because their interface has become totally unusable with thumbnails the full size of your screen. Next I suppose they'll switch to AMAZON'S absurd 10 item per page limit. Plus they make it far too difficult to create custom searches that WORK where you can exclude a very long list of sellers, which has become increasingly necessary because they also fail to enforce their own ban against the practice of sellers listing identical items 1200 times a day. So my search for "mermaid" for example will return about 150,000 results, of which maybe 2000 are relevant and unique, but just try and find them amidst those full screen thumbnails. Idiots are running EBAY, plain and simple.
on some of my auctions i did, but what ebay fails to forget shipping is not FREE, infact it keeps going up, and going up again in jan,,they also take a % of final fee shipping, which should be crime, its like stealing from us
