Re: EBAY is a Ghost Town !!! Where is Everyone?
I have watched the book market take a huge dive over the last year! A book I sold for $12.00 a year and a half ago now is lucky to get a bid for $3.00 or $4.00! It's not worth it to sell my books. I'd rather keep them.

Maybe the economy will pick up again. uhoh Yeah right!

Paypal ruined it too. How many times are they going to soak you for part of what you make? Pay for the auction and then pay to get your money!

Yeah...I would hold on to your books. 4.00 is definitely not worth your time and trouble. Right now everything is about e-readers. But I know there will come a day when your paper book will be worth SOOOOOO much more. People will miss reading a good old fashion book.

Well store owners get to list UNLIMITED auctions until March 31st!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THAT's SARCASM FOLKS

But seriously we do. That's why you are seeing alot of auctions also. Add in the fact that non-store owners get 50 free a month plus they just gave them unlimited aution style listings for a few days.

Yep! you are going to see ALOT of auctions on eBay this month because of all the free listings that they are giving to EVERYONE basically.

I don't use eBay anymore. I use Kijiji. Too many americans had problems shipping electronics and other things I was looking for to Canada, so moved on to Kijiji and haven't looked back. Now I buy locally and feel good about it.

I watch vintage Native American turquoise jewelry. Lots of bids for the really good stuff. Collectible American turquoise and silver. High prices too! Some pieces I watch get 25 bids and go for several hundred dollars.

Re: 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?
I used to sell on there a lot several years ago. They got greedy, too many rules, hiking up the fees so much for every little thing that the seller stands to virtually make nothing.

And PayPal being in bed with them, wants your SS# now if you use them.

Adios eBay and good riddance!

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!

 Quoting: watchZEITGEISTnow


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.
 Quoting: ABADDON - APOLLYON .


Yeah gotta agree about this. The ads are ridiculous. Everywhere you go now to watch videos online, there are ads. I'm sick to death of the media.

As for ebay, many of us have been ripped off one too many times and gave up! I just use Amazon, personally.

I usually skip the auctions and just use the buy it now option. I've spent a lot on ebay in the last month for vegetable seeds. There is a wonderful selection and I can get all the weird tomatoes seeds that I want. (It's an addiction.)

Birthday presents for the siblings was survival seed packs off of ebay. 35,000 seeds, from 50 different organic heirloom varieties, stored in mylar, for less than $30 including shipping. I couldn't get that price and selection anywhere else.

Re: EBAY is a Ghost Town !!! Where is Everyone?
Too many stores selling at Retail or above. Then charging insane shipping prices.


I stopped using them years ago when they banned bullets and gun parts.

They can take their political message and shove it up their asses.

When it was just people selling stuff it was great. Then they kept changing the rules, and the interface and just couldn't leave well enough alone.

It's a classic case of "We must justify our jobs so we must make changes"

The original ebay was fucking awesome with people selling qualilty used items. Now it's assholes unloading broken shit ripping people off or Brand New shit that you can get on Amazon for less.

Enter politics, interface changes and stores selling things you can get at Walmart for less.....well fuck em. I can't wait till they die.

Craiglist will be next. Too many assholes selling new.

Some items have the new "fast and free" promise with an estimate of delivery of 2-3 days, which I would assume is USPS Priority.

However, I've ordered several items and have yet to receive anywhere near the promised 2-3 days.... more like 10.

So those sellers use this "fast and free" mantra probably make additional sales because of it, and ship slow boat for cheaper than cheap, right?

That's a major piss-off -- and reason for me to venture elsewhere. And I did.

Re: EBAY is a Ghost Town !!! Where is Everyone?
i quit ebay due to buy bidders.

the last 15 to 30 seconds would allways cost ya 5 to 20 dollars more due to there buddies bidding on the item for them.

hence i quit ebay the bid system is flawed.

my cousin does the exact same scam on ebay.
he has other accounts:free to make btw" he bids up his own stuff he is selling when someone wants it.
he makes double to triple the profit that way.

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.

Here is a list of 8 things to look for when trying to identify false flag psychological operations.
1. Staged events usually receive immediate national news coverage
2. There is a political agenda behind the coverage (gun control)
3. The incident inspires intense emotions (Dead kids)
4. Initial media reports conflict eyewitness accounts
5. No dead bodies are shown to the public
6. Celebrities are used to influence the public
7. Presence of mainstream media manipulation tactics
8. The Federal Government give attention to a local story

Question Everything.

When any institution is infiltrated by liberals, that institution no longer serves it's original purpose and instead becomes a social engineering vehicle to push a far left fascist agenda. Liberty and liberals are like oil and water.

I sell a ton of stuff on eBay. Haven't noticed any kind of drop off lately.

eBay can charge what they want because it's the best place to sell stuff. It sucks but it's the truth.
You can try going to some other 2nd tier site but even with the fees, eBay is still going to be your best bet.

Amazon's fees are almost the same as well for all the people mentioning them in here.
