bwahhh haha, it's not growth, it's increased fees on merchants, like the final value fees they charge on shipping portion of a transaction since last year. Of course the bottom line is going to look good with increased fees. Unfortunately, eBay has squeezed the lemon dry. This new round of fee changes is going to #$%$ of a lot of high end sellers who will leave for Amazon in the coming months.
davidba1960, instead of filling this board with eBay hope, why not try selling something from your garage or around the house on eBay and see exactly how much they charge + Paypal skim.... You're in for a real surprise and then maybe you'll realize why eBay is destined for failure.
