    eBay is making it tough on the unique seller. If you sell drop ship item or in bulk, no problem, you sell collectibles, high-end fashion, etc. eBays policies are becoming crushing. A ton of fraud. I see bid shilling weekly, and buyers are drying up. I have a consistent following but traffic is down 40 - 70% since 3 years ago. I still sell well, but fewer, higher margin, and see the writing on the wall. In next 16 months 25% of the small sellers who are there now will be gone. Most people shrug and say so what.... they may be 5% of what eBay sells / carries. The difference? there 25% of the small sellers are the ones who carry UNIQUE and hard to find items. People go to eBay because they can't find these things anywhere else. When those sellers are gone, more people will be going to the non-eBay sites with or without brick and mortar presence.
