That is, I believe, what eBay wants. John Donahoe (CEO) stated that eBay looks like a flea market and he is embarrassed by it. He desperately wants to change eBay into Amazon. We see evidence of this when eBay desperately tries to lure large companies to the site.

Problem is, Amazon is already doing a pretty good job of being Amazon.

This WILL come back to haunt them. Plenty of corporation have failed when they forget what it was that made them great in the first place.

On AuctionBytes.com there is a story of a powerseller who has been on eBay for 13 years. 25,000+ positive feedbacks, ZERO negatives. He just recently quit eBay. He stated that between the ever-changing rules, the ever increasing fees and crazy stunts they pull he can no longer run a viable business on eBay.

I totally understand this. Why would ANYONE take a risk and buy a large amount of inventory to sell on eBay when they can pull the plug on you at any time? Plenty of huge eBay sellers have left. And eBay could care less.

Amazon is already getting more traffic than eBay. I have 10 Amazon sales for every ONE eBay sale.

By the time they wise up and replace this guy, the damage will have already been done. Its a shame, becausde eBay really WAS a great place to buy and sell at one time.

The problem is that there is NO other auction site with any decent traffic to sell on. I'm sure it will eventually happen.......but, I'm afraid it will be a long, long while before anything viable comes along.

You have to move with the times im afraid, always have with ebay, it changes constantly & probably always will. Personally i think ebay has got lots better recently, the dsr's are great and is getting rid of all the crap sellers and there customer support is now near excellent, they remove neutral & negs for me all the time, they remove low dsr's also now if you have less than 3 for high volume sellers and 2 for low volume, also they are reinstating lots of accounts quite easily no questions asked at the moment, email them and try you have nothing to lose.

They should yes, but we have all seen and felt the horror stories. I've said it before and I'll say it again. They have a shotgun mentality in killing off the bad guys. And if the bystanders get hit, and they do, its acceptable collateral damage. They don't see John Smith losing his income or losing a few 100 bucks. They see "we lost $xxx less this quarter to fraud"... On paper, it looks good. But the overall result just doesn't work. As they hurt more and more John Smiths, their value as a marketplace goes down. The one and only reason they haven't died a miserable death is they have no competition. And I don't mean they are on top, I mean they stand alone.

In reality, they are arguably one of the most unique examples of an internet empire ever. They are so big and so alone in the market they can literally do anything and still be standing on top.... Empires in the internet world have rose and crumbled in just years. Think Netscape for example. They owned the internet for a few minutes, but competition came alone and completely wiped them out over night. Myspace was a social network pioneer. Facebook kicked them in the nuts pretty hard... ebay has never had to face that. And as much as it would be awesome to see someone roll in and kick some ass, I dont see it happening soon.

Here here. There is a pretty good reason why ebay is what it is. How these guys end up running billion dollar empires escapes me. They always seem to be the kind of people that would have a hard time running a 7-11 night shift. Yet they get control of these massive companies. It is as big as it is for a reason. Reinventing the wheel is silly at this point.

Pretty much, in just a few words, all that needs to be said. It may suck, it may hurt, it may be expensive... But it is what it is. Let them kick you in the nuts once and awhile and take the money home. Right or wrong cant be the issue. Its about money. Do your best to make as much as you can and forget the small stuff...

I cant stop thinking about that statement... Thats exactly how ebay started. Slogan used to be "sell your stuff"

They went after the garage sale "sell your junk in the attic" market for years. Super Bowl ads on that very track for bloody hell... And it made them billions...

I don't know anything about the guy, but it blows my mind he's running ebay...

Just shaking my head

i sold used records for over 3 years.. 99.7 feedback. was kicked off for low dsr's in shipping time and shipping price (i required buyers to pay for tracking and buyers left low dsr's). i was kicked off indefinitely. it's time for people to find other options cus the ship has sailed for the garage sale style site ebay once was.. ebay clearly don't want us.. look at new fee policy that takes 10% of shipping!

I find all of this extremely hard to believe. Never heard anyone claim all that you claim here, not even close. Not to mention, you really sound like some EB/PP troll...

I have had low DSRs removed because I got the buyer to add a follow up admitting they had made a mistake.

I also had a neg removed because the buyer said it was smaller than expected and the size was plainly given in the item specifics.

You need to get through to Dublin (for UK) and not the idiots in Manilla.

However most of the negs I have had removed were via feedback revision.

I totally agree with you, they are punishing the good sellers and now they are charging their cut on shipping charges, I can't see why this is being done to a good seller with reasonable shipping.

I hope that CEO goes elsewhere

Now I am forced to charge more for the item and of course they make more money.

The very nature of eb ay's relation to auctions prevents it from attaining the quality of Am az on - one of the many quality issues.
