    Yes, Ebay.
    Fuck them,
    so bad.

    There a horrible, horrible biz.
    There listing fees and final value fees, along with stupid little things like a dollar to have your listing in fucking BOLD.

    If these forums were ran like eBay I couldnt afford to post here.
    (.50c a post, $1.00 for a link in your post! $1.00 everytime your post has your avatar in it.)
    Shit, hope I didnt give Dave any ideas! :p

    not to mention how easy it is to get ripped off with broken products.

    Oh and the fact eBay owns paypal so they get that transfer fee to.

    Fucking cashcows man.

    To sum it up,

    Ebay sucks.

    Well I know everyone already feels this way,

    But I thought eBay was horrible enough to deserve its own thread in the shitlist.

    It did always feel nice to rack up a couple thousand in listing fees, then bail out and open a new account..

    For all you guys interested, me and another member of this forum (not sure if he wants to be named) are planning on launching a new network of sites to pick up where ebay fucked up. Its a rather huge project though, so it could be a few months before anything goes live. We will need beta testers though, so if your interested in that drop me an EMAIL not a pm, an EMAIL at profitspower@gmail.com and Ill get back to you in a few weeks when beta testing is ready.

    Keep in mind I haven't sold on ebay in about a year... They charge your credit card for the fees owed at the end of the billing cycle... BUT, I would simply register using a prepaid virtual debit card with only a few dollars on in.. So by the time payment came due I had made some nice change and racked up as much a $2000 in fees for the month.. Of course when your virtual debit card was declined they temp suspend your account until you pay the balance.. But at that point I just moved on to another account I had ready and waiting...

    I literally had Zero cost of doing business, not even product cost.. And it was not a digital product either or stolen or anything I had laying around.... They were items printed off the internet for free... 100% positive feedback and at least 100 return customers... But alas that boat has sailed....

    I too have strong animosity against this. Any shithead can ruin your selling rep but you can't reciprocate how awful an experience was? Get the hell outta here...

    Maybe he just means for him personally. But that method does work cause I know a couple of people who did the same thing and made big $$$$$$

    Well i basically gave ebay the boot after Paypal decided to $5k of my money from these auctions for 6 months.. I provided all the info they wanted once the account was limited except for a tracking number for 2 items out of hundreds I had sold.. No customer complaints, not a single chargeback on my account.. But because of one ignorant ass tracking number that I did not have.. They wouldn't even accept the word of the buyer as proof.... I may get back into ebay some later, but that just really soured me on it..

    Oh luckily I had withdrawn over $20k from the acct the day before.. Talk about timing... On an average day I was making $1500 + profit at that time... Me an 1 other person literally owned that entire niche on ebay... A few others came and went here and there but would quickly get their ebay account banned.. I just learned the game for that niche and dominated.... For months after I had previous customers emailing me to sell them more... My average ending price was about $50 give or take for just the cost of a piece of printer paper...

    Well I left eBay awhile ago. I linked up with the founder of BidJunk.com
    Its free to list items and no final sale fee. I don't want to seem like im spamming but I just wanted to help ours find another place to list their items.

    You got to be suck of feebay and paypal freezing accounts for no reason.
