A look at the discussion boards on ebay reveals thread after thread of unhappy buyers and sellers detailing numerous problems and a tense climate of fear and distrust pervades the threads. At least one online blog has begun monitoring the situation: ebayhorrorstories.wordpress.com

Now with the advemt of ebay China and Global shipping, thousands of Chinese sellers are flooding ebay with cheap, shoddy made-in-China items at rock bottom prices, further undermining American ebay sellers and lowering the prestige of ebay as a site in the process.

Ebay's flawed DSR system is driving a lof of small sellers off. Low DSR ratings left by a buyer adversely impact small sellers more severely and more quickly than they do high volume sellers.

People are getting scared to buy stuff online anymore because of all the reports they see about buyers getting ripped off by scam artists. People are becoming much more cautious with how they make purchases, and traditional retail stores are making a big comeback as a result.

Ina Steiner has a new article out on Ecommercebytes.com about ebay partnering with big retailers. This will also further squeeze out the little guy.

I'm upset. Why does ebay allow sexually explict material? I don't want my kids to stumble upon that, so i no longer allow them on ebay.

Etsy is becoming serious competition for ebay on certain levels. Nordstrom's is now an Etsy backer.

Ebay blocked, restricted, suspended, and outright banned some 15,000 sellers in their latest "purge" earlier this week. Google Suzanne Wells for the article about it.

Is this purge of 15,000 sellers part of ebay's so-called "disruptive innovation"?

Site visibilty for items is already an issue for many sellers, but it officially becomes an isue on October 26, 2013 whn the new user agreement update in which ebay HAS GRANTED ITSELF PERMISSION TO HIDE SELLERS' LISTINGS FROM VISIBILTY actually goes into effect. A number of sellers contacted the FTC (prior to the government shutdown) reporting this egregious action on ebay's part, because sellers have a REASONABLE EXPECTATION that their items will be presented for public viewing (that's why they put them on ebay to begin with, so they can be seen in order to sell them). Ebay denying the visibility of items usinfg undefined criteria constitutes TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE.

Ebay is a joke. i run the buisness akunar.com . i decided just to list some items on ebay not yet released to the public. i did everything better than anyone i had purchased from and had 100% feedback. they put in place rediculous demands and limits to slow me down. the problem is im motivated and when they realized i would be a power seller in no time i feel they shut me down. ebay is scarred that ebay will be asian run i think. fact is it is already. we make many parts for customers that only sell on ebay. i know many manufacturers personaly that make what is claimed to be made in the us.
i was told over the phone that a power seller in the US complained that we would hurt their sales. they didnt say it in somany words but thats the jist of it. i guess the consumers will suffer. we only planned to sell quality on ebay at wholesale prices.
