Seller Feels Unsupported after eBay Changes Price of Bra

By: Reader

Dear Ina,
The monster is at it again - I guess there's nothing we can do about eBay changing our selections.

I had a new w/ tags Bra listed to start auction at $14.99 and eBay changed the "offer" price to $7. 

I never choose "make an offer". The bra new sells for $30. I had to go into the listing and change the offers and relisting options.

Ebay has no standing at all to do that.
It isn't Ebay's store.
It isn't Ebay's business.
It isn't Ebay's bra to sell.
They aren't Ebay's customers.
Time to shove it up Ebay's......and get the hell out.
Everybody make like it's 1980.
Time for swap meets, and field / drive-in theater shows again.
Mask UP for some good ole fashioned fun   :o)

Entirely everything that The End has said, I agree 100%.

Very nice touch on the title, Ina.
While these venues continue to beat down sellers with unethical practices,
it is nice to see a little levity.

OP, like The End has said, it will be time to search for other places to sell and not rely on D-bay to anchor your business. (if that's the case)

They have been changing things to 'best offer' for a few years now as far as I can remember.
This with the many, MANY... TOO MANY underhanded tricks to satisfy their investors and own company profit.  There is no more strategy, no policy, the only goal now is to RIP SELLERS OFF.

It's the Walmart employee mentality, ''It doesn't matter how much money is made or lost as long as I get my paycheck''

Coincidentally, that's the quality of CEO'S that ebay will invest in... until China starts making them.

This happens all the bleeping time!  eBay does this especially to non-business sellers.  Imagine the owner of a mall telling the stores within it to lower their prices.  eBay's a bleeping joke!

“ Very nice touch on the title, Ina.”

Yeah. Much classier than say, eBay changes Breast Offer to Best Offer.

Heinously inappropriate nevertheless. But what else can one expect from those bunch of boobs?

Dear @Reader, all you have to do is uncheck the box to allow offers, and the one which will lower the price automatically. Occasionally eBay does it anyway, but you can revise the listing to change that. Don't let them run over you. Take charge of the situation. That's what I do.

And why are these types of things not being reported to the proper authorities? They are illegally tampering with a small business's operations and profit margins. There are laws against these things, folks. Use them!
