  1. One would have to be a complete snowflake to even consider paying for this scam.

  2. “Build it and they will come” will nevermore apply to ebay.

    Just more evidence of the panic in accounting…they have less and less to count.

  3. How many more tricks can these idiots come up with? It’s laughable or sad whichever way you want to look at it. Every new thing they try is a scheme to take more and more from sellers. If you’re a smaller seller, why would eBay even think someone would sign up for this? So eBay can take any profit you might have gotten from a sale after fees? So you end up losing money on a sale? Ads and promoted listings aren’t even proven to inscrease sales as eBay claims. Just another way for them to trick people so eBay gets more money.

    What a total scam against it’s users this organization is…

  4. Does Wenig think he can keep eBay afloat on the backs of the sellers? He is obviously lives in another time and place.

  5. It doesn’t work. I “happen” to sell something that is on my “promoted listings” and that’s it. I have finally taken all of mine down. I’ve been suppressed for the most part of 3 months now. I have perfect scores all the way. Not one ding on my account and selling into my sixth year. It’s been much easier these days to check my invoices since I’m not selling much. Two months ago they owed me $55.00. This month I have added up $63.00 of overcharging me. All sorts of things are wrong. Moreover, I have an account I buy from and one that I sell from. I have been getting emails from my competitors telling me to shop with this person quoting them as an “experienced seller”! I have some very hot items on eBay and I can’t get my products out there. I know when they do expose me for maybe 4-5 hours. During that time, I get lots of offers, questions and purchases. I’m pretty ticked. This has been way too long now. If I pay them $299.00 or so for an Anchor Store, and I will get the same treatment including my own personal agent. That’s what I was told today after calling again over an outrageous invoice.

  6. Hmm..let them arbitrarily choose how much you pay for their ads and you wont even know anything until you get the bill lol nonthanksvand it should be illegal

  7. I have had trouble with my link (so I thought) and started using my buyer account to list. No matter what I do, I cannot sell anything with some very attractive products and are in demand. I promote listings and consistently they do not show up as sponsored. No help at all.
