  1. “We’re changing how we charge fixed fees to apply to each order, rather than EACH INDIVIDUAL ITEM in an order, saving you money when buyers purchase multiple items from you.”

    Although it was frequently confused as “each individual item”, the fact eBay got their own absurd PER LISTING fee money-grab wrong here illustrates how ridiculous and confusing the scheme was (in typical eBay fashion).

  2. Selling on ebay is now more complicated than the IRS tax code. Why does this have to be so convoluted? Just come out and tell everyone you want 25% of every sale in exchange for “advertising”. eBay has lost scope of what it really is. It’s an advertising platform, it’s never going to be anything else. When you are “locked in” to them having a strangehold on every part of a transaction, they will literally drain every last drop of fun and independence out of every person on their site, buyer or seller both. Seriously, should we just all quit and go work in an office tower? We are employees that don’t get any benefits. Looking a lot like uber, lyft, grubhub, etc when you boil it down. Bust your ass with a threatening corporation hanging over every transaction, and they don’t even give you health insurance or unemployment benefits when it becomes unsustainable and you have to quit. Go America.

  3. If eBay focused 100% on making Sellers happy, ALL Sellers, they would have all the business they could ever want

    By putting the focus on Buyers, to the point where it actually harms Sellers in every way imaginable, they are shooting themselves in the foot. No one can keep Buyers happy like well-motivated Sellers

    If eBay took care of me, I would be building my business 24 hours a day, instead of looking for an escape

  4. “In the event of a refund or cancellation, the variable portion of your final value fees will generally be returned to you………”

    This is just another one of the many details stated within the new Managed Payments terms of service, that really needs to be addressed by eBay so that sellers can have an idea of what to expect.

    “the variable portion of your final value fees will GENERALLY be returned to you………” This portion of within eBay’s terms of service; is a little unsettling.

    As a seller I sure would like to know EXACTLY what types of specifc situations would my final value fees GENERALLY NOT BE RETURNED TO ME?

    1. “what types of specifc situations would my final value fees GENERALLY NOT BE RETURNED TO ME?”

      Probably when scummy buyers make false claims that your items are “Not As Described”; the favorite return claim of scammers on eBay now.
