    Yeah, if he doesn't even believe what he writes how the heck am I suppose to. Ebay may had a profit but I can guarantee you it wasn't because of their auction business. Paypal may had a profit but definitely not Ebay.

    Comparing an auction house to Ebay is like comparing a truck to a car. Two totally different types of sellers on each platform.

    I used to be a seller on Ebay and found that their fees are just too high and decided to close up shop. Their high fees just don't allow for much profit if any at all for sellers. Little do they know that if they lower the fees more folks could actually sell more stuff, it would be a win win for both Ebay and the seller. Sellers could actually make money and ebay rakes in profits for more things being sold. However, Ebay thinks higher fees equate to bigger profits for them when the opposite is true. Higher fees equal less sellers and less stuff sold on their site. A lot of folks have been moving to other platforms so the downtrend will continue in the foreseeable future.
