    I suspect many EPNer's will have gotten the email titled "List FREE Auction-style, any start price with free Buy It Now"
    I wonder what is driving this fairly large change - is a competitor finally chipping away at their dominate status? I know it's not because they suddenly turned 'nice'.

    Thoughts and opinions?

    Well they do it from time to time, so it's nice to have it permanently.

    I sure hope they take a beating, and eventually cut down the final value fee, but i don't see that hapening.

    eBay is like punching yourself in the balls. You think because you can sell 20% above what you bought it for, you can make a profit.

    But after PayPal, eBay and shipping fees, you lose money!

    I've got to say, I've stopped selling all together because of affiliate marketing, but I buy almost all my stuff from Amazon when I buy it online. I do this because of the monopoly PayPal/eBay have when trying to just make a purchase from eBay. It's a god damn hassle.
