Online auctions are essentially outdated. Ebay has seen the handwriting on the wall and is transforming itself into another Amazon. The day of the small seller, the mom & pops, is basically over. High volume sellers have taken over.

A lot of articles I have read indicate that ebay insiders engage in "pump and dump".
One can Google ebay insider selling and see some interesting things.

Ebay's tactics towards small sellers: In 2008 John Donahoe (CEO) made it clear he wanted to move away from a flea market operation to brand name big box retailers. With numerous policies that were enacted to eliminate small sellers (chief among these the flawed DSR system) he has been succeeding with a vengeance. 1) The DSR system adversely impacts small sellers more swiftly and egregiously then it does the favored big box and high volume retailers. 2) 15,000 small sellers were axed by ebay on August 6, 2013. 3) The automatic five-star DSR glitch/malfunction that ebay has admitted not fixing was responsible for at least some those purged getting purged because many were only out of compliance by one DSR star 3) The elimination of the policy compliance feature on the seller dashboard. If anybody thinks that was not purposefully done to hurt small sellers, I have some acreage on the moon I will sell you 4) ebay's latest user agreement update that goes into effect October 26 granting itself permission to hide sellers' listings. The majority of sellers on the ebay discussion boards think ebay has already been hiding sellers' listings 5) Ebay's numerous moves in past user agreement opt ins or opt outs to try to insulate or protect itself from class action lawsuits 6) this new managed returns issue (see new user agreement) 7) the fee hikes 8) the misuse/abuse of the DSR system to rob good decent sellers of TRS status and discounts they would get.

PayPal and various other properties are what are keeping ebay profitible (along with padded numbers being fed to stock analysts), not the ebay marketplace in a real long-term sense (although it arguably constitutes 39%-45% of the ebay revenue pie depending on who is doing the numbers and what you believe). Ebay as a selling venue has peaked and will decline and plummet over time as more and more small sellers as well as the big box retailers continue to sell directly to their buyer/customer base without allowing ebay to unnecessarilly insert itself into the equation.
