The Discussion Boards on ebay are full of horror stories by unhappy, dissatisfied sellers who are announcing their departures from ebay to go to other selling sites with their goods. How has this situation developed?

Bad decision and policies were introduced at ebay that adversely affected sellers. That's what started the whole mess. A lot of sellers have migrated (and are still migrating) to other auction sites online (e.g. Bonanza, eBid) and putting ads on Craigslist as well.

The handwriting is on the wall for ebay. IT'S CRUMBLING FROM WITHIN BECAUSE OF BAD POLICIES INTRODUCED THAT AFFECT THE SMALL SELLER. I got out of there and I'm not going back.

I've done well with Craigslist. I don't miss ebay after some of the bad experiences I had there.

Look for other online selling sites like ebid and Bonanza to really take off as ebay sellers switch over to them with their items.

The whole Globe Shipping Program is going to turn into a gigantic fiasco for Ebay. Sellers will bear the brunt of it, of course, as they always do.

I got so frustrated with ebay that I went back to consignment stores and yard sales. Plus my kiddos get to help me when I put on a yard sale.

With the advent of ebay China, thousands of Chinese sellers are now flooding ebay with cheap, shoddy "made in China" goods that undermine American ebay sellers, cheapen the site and lower the prestige of ebay as an online venue.

Ebay sellers filed an antitrust lawsuit over feedback policy sometime last year (you can Google it). It's slowly inching its way into court.

It's about time ebay got hit with an antitrust lawsuit over DSRs. Can't wait to see how it turns out when it goes to court.

As a Christian parent, I am very disturbed by the availability of sexually explicit adult material offered up for sale on ebay. Children these days are way too computer smart for their own good and in most households with a computer, parents can't monitor what their kids might stumble upon 24/7. If enough churches would join together and boycott ebay, maybe they would get the message and stop making the filth available.

Nordstrom's is backing Etsy, so this will give ebay some added competition.
