Lightbulb The light dawns, EBAY's motivations & Interesting Alternatives...

EBAY has decided to leave the little guy in the dust. What started EBAY, Mom and Pop businesses selling their wares, is the last thing in the world EBAY wants now.

For a company like EBAY, it is very expensive to operate worrying about the little guy. Why? Because fraudsters are always the little guy. The large sellers, the ones selling tens of thousands in merchandise or more, make tons of money for EBAY, and they are never a problem when it comes to EBAY fees or Paypal chargebacks.

These big wigs are allowed free reign and favor EBAY and Paypal's latest tactics to weed out their competition. They hate the little guy underpricing them and EBAY is listening.

It all makes sense. Their new search policy directing people towards bigger sellers. Making it so small sellers have to take a beating to make a dime, making it easy for buyers to rip them off, making it more likely their assets will be frozen, and stealing as much as they can from suspended sellers to support their transition.

EBAY is moving towards being a mall, where large sellers buy space, and they will gradually weed all the small fry out. From what I am seeing, they are suspending nearly all new accounts now.

Anyway, here is a great article. I think it clearly shows what EBAY is up to. They don't want to be a flea market anymore. They want to be more like Amazon without the warehouses and inventory.

I have to slightly disagree with that. What eBay used to attract were small frauds. What it attracts now are big frauds. Like the guys that were in the news a while ago, selling $25M of ⊗⊗⊗⊗ merchandise on eBay.
