    sales getting really slow to come by on ebay.

    down to a trickle (taking a loss on sales that have been few and far between)

    • Same here selling for 15 years and i have never seen it so bad, the only thing i'm doing good on are power tools and necessities, not discretionary items like collectibles, or nice to haves

    • In recent years, it's become impossible to guage sales on eBay. One week it looks like things have returned to normal pace and the next week, it's like a ghost town.

      I suspect what's going on now is since eBay has imposed a new deadly metric for sellers, they'e not spending their earnings at eBay. Management seems to forget, like an antique mall, dealers are also customers of fellow dealers. A portion of the money they pocket in the community gets spent in the community. This always happens every time new fees are introduced, etc.

      Hang in there and do try to diversify your inventory across other marketplaces.
