Another Top eBay Seller Bites the Dust
By: Ina Steiner
eBay Seller Sell2All has filed for bankruptcy (link). It has shocked a lot of people, especially coming on the heels of Glacier Bay DVDs recent closure. It appears overhead is a big risk factor for online sellers- just as we predicted for eBay consignment sellers. I hope the owners of these two firms will share some lessons with the rest of us.

I've checked around and it appears that Mr. Dubsky (Sell2All) started investing his eBay profits into (ill-considered) software development that went way over budget and ate up all his capital -- his eBay business had nothing to do with his bankruptcy. Let that be a lesson to all sellers out there! Expand, yes, but don't forget how you got there!
