  1. eBay can not invest since they are running out of free cash flow because of the stock buy backs and the debt that is due next year so all they can do is partner with people. They do this instead of investing in what they already have to fix and marketizing what they have always been and always will be, a place for used and unusual items and collectables.

    eBay = Dead Man Walking

  2. Okay – IN a nutshell, let me see if I understand the overall 2018-2019 picture. As an Ebay seller – one would have to PAY ebay to have a store each month (whether or not anything sells) – if the seller does not choose to have “free shipping” then no final value fee discounts, no views at the top of a page etc. Of course, if the Seller get any views at all. And if they are on Managed Payments – Tsk, tsk, Paypal Buyers – THEY HAVE A STORE ON EBAY that they have paid for to SHOW OFF THEIR STUFF!!!

    Now as a BUYER – THEY are going to PAY Ebay for the privilege of Buying FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS for $49 a year (plus maybe now have access to a 1980’s movie video they can see for free from Amazon, hulu, etc.) AND, AND – Since THEY PAID for ONLY FREE SHIP and FREE RETURNS EBAY will further limit their choices from the 2+ million listings and sellers to maybe three VERY EXPENSIVE or VERY CHEAP (Chinese) Sellers – Because Ebay will ONLY SHOW THE PRIME MEMBERS “Free Ship and FREE Return” Sellers – Thus YET AGAIN DECREASING the Limited, Barely Non-existant Visibility for those Non-Free Shipping Store Owners that PAID to be SHOWN.

    WHAT could go WRONG here???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm…..

    I am sure all of those BIG Commence Sellers will spend ALL of their profits ON EBAY to support each other right ?..ha,…ha…..HAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHA
