  1. I just saw a judge judge episode about Nike sneakers. Seller A bought his Nikes from a Facebook seller. He claimed they were authentic. Seller B went to FB and bought the Nikes from Seller A for $400. They even took a flashlight to inspect the Nikes. Paid for them, got the Nikes home and realized they were fakes. Tried to get a refund from Seller A. No can do, per judge judy. I foresee a lot of these Ebay, FB, AMZ cases going to TV judges. It gives a good insight into how these young guys are making money.

    I go thrifting every week and always see 1-2 people who scoop up a cartful of sneakers. To me, they’re nasty and dirty, and I wouldn’t want the task of cleaning them. Plus, like above, they could be fakes.

  2. The Auction Professor posted an interesting comment regarding Harry Temkin’s son’s sneaker business and the fact that the sneaker category has a $0 final value fee for all sneakers sold at more than $100. How is this not favoring his son? There was a comment in this same video that Harry Temkin has admitted in the February seller meet and in writing the he is also a partner with his son. I wonder when his son started his business and if the change came into effect around that time.

    The Auction Professor goes on to add that at there is also an ebay executive who worked at reverb who used to deal in guitars which coincidentally has had the lowest rate of fees for years.

    While many sellers struggle with constant fee increases, it would appear that others are favored based on whether they have relatives that work at ebay.

    It therefore appears that ebay is favoring certain categories based on people who work there.

  3. Harry in ebays Feb meet said he was a partner in his sons sneaker business..it seems to be a conflict. Its like insiders trading but more sophisticated
