EBAY is a Ghost Town !!! Where is Everyone?
Hi All. Im doing my usual cruising on Ebay, antiques, video games, collectibles. building sets. tarot decks, computer parts, Gifts for the lady like designer stuff .

TOTALLY DEAD ! Hardly any Bidders ! I see O Bids, O Bids constantly . Most everything is at zero bids and about to end. If theres a sporadic one bid here and there its about to end and the seller wont make hardly anything

What kind of stuff are you bidding on and is any action happening?

This dead calm is scary, More stuff for me,but this is too easy. Is everyone out of money? Whats going on?

Re: EBAY is a Ghost Town !!! Where is Everyone?
A lot of people aren't happy with the way things are going on eBay. I was looking at completed listings for a few products and noticed a lot of auctions that ended with no bids. eBay brought this problem (if it even is one) on themselves. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"... the lust for MORE MONEY can always kill a company.

Have you tried selling recently on feeBay? In their push for Amazonification, they've taken all the fun out of being a seller. They lost their focus on being the world's online yard sale, and in doing so, have run off a large portion of their sellers.

Seems like how its going now. Looks like 90 percent of items get zero bids.

Whats going on with Ebay? I havent sold there for years, My buying record though is almost at 500.

Silver coins are hot on Ebay. Wish I had known to save those 1964 quarters, in 1964. Recently figured out that's why Ted Binion had all those bars of silver, I'm sure he pulled it out of slot machine change.

Re: EBAY is a Ghost Town !!! Where is Everyone?
ebay fucked up about 5 years back with the paypal fiasco - and also they made the user home page so obscure and disorientated (by design I think).

ebay was once an awesome experience.

ebay now is Chinese knockoffs and op shop rejects...

Funny how this happens to a lot of net companies. youtube is the latest to step backwards in evolution.

Oh well at least we still have piratebay! ARRRR!

Youtube sucks now. I avoid all of the videos with commercials. It used to belong to the people and now the big corporations and their ads ruined it.

They do no screening either, Saw a woman being sprayed with horse spunk and it was getting a few million views and no one pulled it. I never clicked on it, It was obvious by the title and cover pic.

Piratebay is still up? Good.

Re: EBAY is a Ghost Town !!! Where is Everyone?
I bet it is the new terms and conditions paypal announced recently. They are now hokd funds for transactions for 21 days now, i think. My paypal account wasn't affected but i think if you have any negative feedback on ebay or have history of deals going sour, the new terms may apply to you. So yeah holding your money for that long after a product is verified shipped and everything is BS. Sucks for A LOT of people.

And a LOT of fake gold coming out of East Asia.


Last remote-controlled helicopter I bought (FROM A LOCAL STORE)was a copy! I know how to tell and it really ticked me off. The merchant had no clue!

Not a LITTLE helicopter btw!

Re: EBAY is a Ghost Town !!! Where is Everyone?
I used to sell on eBay and loved it but cannot compete with the ASIAN markets who sell SHITTY merchandise for pennies on the dollar. They have huge sites and 10 people running each site and sell their fake merchandise for cheap. People here are so stupid they do not realize it is fake. eBay loves them because they do HUGE volume. I couldn't sell my genuine jewelry at the same prices as they sold their silver plated copper jewelry (which was listed as sterling silver) (I ran into these problems constantly and eBay just didn't care). So I finally had to stop, it ruined EVERYTHING....
