I know a lot of ebayers doesn't like the idea of ME PAGE but I love it. Some ebayers use ME PAGE as ads for their store/shop or item for sale/auction BUT for me it is not only about selling. I use the ME PAGE mainly as a guide for the other ebayer to know what kind of ebayer I am. I even put a picture of myself NOT to show off BUT for the other ebayer to see to whom they are dealing with.
I set up the ME page because my main purpose is to express my thoughts and ideas about selling and buying and also for the other ebayer to be aware of what activities of buyers/seller that are acceptable and NOT acceptable to me.
In my ME PAGE there is also about my terms and conditions for the buyers. Its NOT only saving my time BUT it allows me to concentrate when I putting up item for auction/sale
No you don't have to put your picture. It is up to every individual. BUT for me why I decided to put my picture because I believe that it will increase the possibilty of having good transaction between seller and buyer.
