A Rocky Start For eBay’s New Selling Format

 

As of this writing,  it is unclear if this issue has been corrected.

I do not root against eBay.  eBay needs to be successful in order for the 1.3 million sellers on their site to be successful.  eBay is and will hopefully continue to be a big part of my business.

Let’s just hope eBay gets all these bugs worked through in the next 30 days, because Thunderbirds are go for the holidays.  We still have to get through capped shipping and the removal of money orders/checks as payment in October.

Crossing his fingers,

Kevin

Is It Time For eBay To Break Up With…Itself?

Hi gang, So, I’ve been thinking about this idea for a while now.  Let’s say that you are eBay, and you recently realized that your core business idea, auctions, has a fad component to it.   By that, I mean that auctions were a very cool idea 10 years ago, but the novelty of them is [...]
