I've gotten so frustrated with ebay that I've gone back to doing consignment shops and yard sale. My kiddos love to help out when I have a yard sale!

Wonder what this new Global Shipping Program ebay keeps trying to shove down sellers' throats is going to end up being? It looks like a gigantic fiasco in the making.

Starting in 2008, ebay put into place numerous policies that are having the overall result of squeezing out and eliminating the small sellers while favoring high volume sellers. This is by deliberate design, as ebay is in the process of transforming into a virtual online overstock warehouse venue, very similar to Amazon.

One of the things driving small sellers off of ebay is the flawed DSR system. Low DSR ratings left by a buyer have a much faster and more severe impact upon a small seller than they do upon a high volume seller.

Chinese sellers are flooding the site with cheap mass produced items at rock bottom prices, undercutting American ebay sellers and cheapening the prestige of the site as well.

Ebay's purge last week of some 15,000 sellers blocked by ebay from listing is their latest egregious action against small sellers and a publicity nightmare in the making.

Guardrail or Quick Decline is Ebay's latest weapon of choice in the continuing elimination of small sellers. This mechanism targets the low DSR "opinions" that buyers have left for sellers and misuses/abuses the DSR system to slap restrictions on the targeted small sellers, leading to an acceleration of the seller's demise.

The situation at ebay just keeps growing worse daily for small sellers, with even more purges recently.

eBay is simply not geared up for after sales service. The fact that after a few weeks you can no longer call up an item you purchased is sufficient proof.

I documented my experience of one such transaction at http://empire267.blogspot.com/ .
