eBay Poaches on Seller's Store with Ads for Rivals
I found out something VERY disturbing about eBay this past weekend while working hard on my eBay Store page. I looked at my listings from a buyer perspective (not being logged in) so I could see what my listings look like from a customer perspective.
I found that on almost EVERY one of my listings (hundreds), eBay was promoting other sellers' listings directly under my pictures even before you get to my item description, etc.!!!!!!
That's what I would call poaching on my listing, and there were several more rows of more "suggestions" further down my page!!!!!
I called eBay about this VERY disturbing find, and as I expected I got the runaround that this is the way eBay does their website.
I'm just sick about the fee increases and rules they change every year making it harder to make a buck. I figured I will be losing around $40/month with just the losing of 10% of my discount. It seems the rich just get richer, and we have to just deal with it.
I wonder how many other people are aware of this. I've been eBaying since 1999, and this is how I make my living!!!
