Issue: Traffic and Sales are the lowest over the past week I have ever seen since 2004. Platinum level Top Rated Powerseller over 5000 items listed and 1-2 sales a day. Anyone else seeing something similar? By: ebayisscrewed
Are you experiencing this issue?

Yes, ebay is obviously in partnership with the Chinese sellers as they dominate just about EVERY category... Its so sad, as they are stealing our brands, our small businesses and our livelyhood. Our sales have declined EXACTLY 25% each of the past 3 years, its obviously manipulated where ebay controls how many sales you have to the Nth degree.. Classless and unethical company, but don't worry Karma will get them in the end!!

Yes, 16 years on ebay. 10 with 17+% per year growth, then 6 with 12% per year decline and accelerating FAST. Last year ended lower than 2006 and I have 150% more products now than then.

It it were not for best offer, my sales would be darn near zero for the last three months. I'm thinking that in addition to the Chinese stuff, bad search manipulation, people are just plain broke.

2015 was my best year ever on fleabay. 2016 started out great. then I got put into the stupid beta (no way to opt out) that hid the descriptions. Never recovered, sales for 2016 were down 46%. Same products, same pricing. I am not buying any more product, as soon as I sell off most of what I have left I'm gone.

Saturday-Sunday i sold 41 items for a total of $228.
Monday I sold 1 item for $9.25.
About the time I have a good sales day, the next is slow.
Comparing 2015 to 2016 sales, I lost 23.4%.
No mater what I do, nothing improves sales.

Absolutely dreadful. I just took listings down for vacation; my Unsold Listings count is up to 48! The one item I'm able to ship from my current location is the PRICE LEADER with FREE SHIPPING and it's not moving, either.

Mine started midway in November worst sales records ever I am looking to join other platforms.Ebay has knocked my confidence in my ability to make a living on the platform,it sucks and the technical team in the accounts department are not fixing the feedback percentage ratings which also affects sales and has been an accepted technical problem since November because they do not know what they are doing.My sales have dropped to less than half of what I had in the previous year.
