AND IN THE NATIONAL NEWS ...


Ebay Store Fees Get Jacked

Lots of news sites have reported on the fee hike that eBay is implementing in August of this year. It's designed (in their words) to level the playing field and keep the system "auction-centric". Many of their loyal merchants are being hit really hard by this, facing increases in their business expenses of up to 37% (way more than the 6% average that was referenced in the announcement email from eBay President Bill Cobb).

Many of us are doing protest auctions, revising them as eBay Trust and Safety pulls the listing for really weak excuses. Run a search on eBay for "fee hike" and see for yourself, if you're curious. Don't count on anything completing the auction end, though. They're taking them down as fast as they can find them. It would feel better if they'd just say up front "you're making us look bad. we're shutting this down" as is fully within their legal right according to the EULA Statement, but they choose to piddle and try to make pegs fit into their little boxes.

On top of that, they have forums for the Sellers Community where we can discuss problems and questions with each other, a place where we are supposed to be able to safely vent with others that understand our unique business difficulties or strategize with our peers on ways to improve seller/buyer relationships or the ebay experience as a whole. They just pulled the forums offline due to Dissastified Seller Content. Some sellers are now considering legal action based upon damage to their business and censorship.

Here is my contribution to the Seller Community: Future Dream Home



Overall this stinks, because it's definitely going to impact our bottom line, but it's not the end of the world if I can figure out how to make their new math work.
