Glad I cut my losses when it was "up" to 18. After THREE years I had enough.
Have you ever BOUGHT anything through Alibaba? Cheap junk. Knock offs. Guaranteed to have dissatisfied buyers and returns. No legitimate seller wants this #$%$. It's already flooded ebay direct from China.
Got this in my seller account today. Impossible to list that many in that amount of time. Stop the charade and just make all listings free. As it should be.

Traditional sellers are being cast off for Chinese flood. The abuse that is heaped upon traditional sellers is beyond belief. Excessive fees, forced returns, broken ratings systems are just the tip. The rules get changed regularly so that you can not set up a long term business model. Thankfully I've been able to move fully half of my sales to a competitor in the past six months. An excellent business has been turned into a trailer park.
Great. If it doubles I'll be back to where I bought in. Nothing to do but sit, wait, hope.
Been long over a year. Have researched and believed in it, but, really, really, really losing patience. Don't even say this is a buying opp either. Heard that one time too many and believed it.
Hope you're right. Been long on this for over a year, but, getting tired of the run up to 6.80 then dead drop to 5.5 or so. Getting nauseous. Should have sold at 6.8 and then bought back. Problem is I don't see ANY rhyme or reason to the whipsaw.
Ok, help me out. WHERE do you sellers making a living on ebay get your inventory? I've been doing it for six months and my best month I made about $350. I sold all the crap in my house and have since been hitting garage sales for inventory. Sure, I can flip a few books bought for $1 for $5, but, that would take A LOT of books to make a living. What part am I missing?
two issues here. I don't dispute your STOCK analysis. However, there are major issues with ebay's customer service and how they treat CUSTOMERS. They currently do own the market, that is why they can get away with treating customers like they do. I have had the same negative experience as the original poster. Bad customer service can, will, and has destroyed companies before and will again.
