Ebay is so freaking stupid and ridiculous I'm just about done there. If you've been a seller on Ebay you will receive an email about their 'Reduced Listing Fees' which said:
You asked, we listened. We're reducing Insertion Fees and adjusting Final Value Fees to lower your up-front cost to sell on eBay. You wanted free Gallery, now you've got it--plus more feature discounts.
What the crap is that, do they think we are stupid???!! They lowered the insertion fees by a nickel and raised their final value fees by 66% from 5.25 to 8.75% and think we are actually making more now. NO EBAY YOU DIDNT LISTEN because you greedy morons are going to squeeze out all the sellers who are paying your damm salaries out of business and don't insult our intelligence by thinking we cant do our maths or by going hurrah that I'm going to lose money cuz u lowered the insertion fees and the gallery is free now (it shouldve been free in the first place) but u jack up prices on another end!!!! This is just ridiculous, usually I just take the fee increases in insertion costs as matters of rising prices for servers but 8.75% of our sales price jump is just too much that I just couldn't believe it and had to read the details like 5 times over. Oh yes and next you'll be increasing Paypal fees huh!!! Why the hell am I paying 40% of my sales to Ebay???
The other most idiotic feature I've encountered is the new feedback policy:
"Sellers will no longer be able to leave negative or neutral Feedback for buyers." jawdrop!!! WHAT THE SHIT IS THAT GOOD FOR???!!!!
So I am forced to leave postitive feed back even though it was a stupid buyer who didn't read or the stupid post office who delays my packages or buyers out to scam me and I have no right to retaliate or warn other sellers abt dealing with them??? What a TRAIN load of BS!! Then wats the point of the friggin feedback for??? So only buyers are in charge of the deal?? PLEASE EBAY USE YOUR BRAINS IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THAT, it's the SELLERS who are running your godamm company. Without sellers, the buyers have NOTHING to come here for. Your stock prices are dropping and made a stupid decision to buy sykpe for 1billiion and what's the easy way out, YEAH! RAISE FEES AGAIN AND KILL THE SELLERS, ANYHOW THEY'RE SO STUPID THEY WON'T NOTICE!! YEA ALL SELLERS ARE CROOKS AREN'T WE? I tell you what ebay, I HOPE YOU CRASH AND BURN. GOOGLE WHERE ARE YOU JUST KILL OFF THIS DAMM HAZARD AND RELIEVE US OF ITS STUPIDITY!!! YOU GUYS READ THE FREAKING BOARDS, SELLERS ARE SAYING GOODBYE!!! What comes around goes around, community marketplace my ass. I won't even go to the part of the shitty rules of 4.8 stars for powerseller status. Alot of sellers will lose powerseller status that way so guess what? Yes they're not entitled for discounts which means more money into ebay's pockets!!!
Oh wait, I forgot about this part where they say Paypal can hold your payments for 21 days if they suspect that the customer will be unsatisfied. WOW so they're psychics now!! I don't see the sense in that. I shall tell customers that I will only ship out after 21 days when paypal release the money to me! Simple, anyhow I'm just taking a leaf out of ebay's books! Screw the buyers right?!
I am SO sorry for the rant, I wouldn't be as pissed if Ebay didn't think we are stupid. Really really horrible company. Zero protection for sellers, haven for scammer buyers.
