Might be time for me to think about getting an ebay store for the lower final value fees.

I think that is eBay's strategy - to "direct" us all to open a store with them. I have yet to do the sums to maximise my bang for buck!

Quite a lot of complaints about it in our local media.

One former power seller addressed the issue mainly by saying he no longer sells on ebay.

He has made the transition most successfully to his own website.

LED TVs, LCD TV Deals from the LED TV Specialists. Best value LED TV discounts in Australia from Kogan

Sells grey imports of electronics. Offers a ridiculously cheap cell phone sim card too
