A look at ebay Discussion boards reveals post after post of unhappy, dissatisfied sellers who are leaving ebay and beginning to list their items on other online selling sites such as Amazon, Etsy, Bonanza, etc. Could this departure of many sellers gain momentum and have the snowball effect of creating a MASS EXODUS of sellers?

Since around 2008, ebay has introduced numerous bad policiies that adversely impact sellers, especially "small sellers", and ebay keeps changing the rules whenever they get ready to. A lot of sellers are fed up with all of it.

Many sellers have migrated over to Bonanza and ebid and are running ads on Craigslist.

I've switched to Bonanza, eBid and Addoway. All great online selling sites.

When Ebay first started up, it was like the Wild West.

I got my first computer back in 99 just to get on ebay.

IBM aptiva.

With a careful analysis products could be sold at enormous profit.

Of course the aol interface did not make things any easier.

Most large companies become living fossils due to the enormous inertia imposed by older management.

And thus begins the crumbling from within...

An attorney wrote a very good article about how to combat ebay's illegal 21-day holds on seller's PayPal funds. Here's the link: https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/How-to-us...
