From the CoinAuctioneer Gals!
PinkLady & ME!
As many of you that are reading this have learned on May 19th eBay stripped sellers of their right to leave neutral or negative feedback!
NOT ONLY THAT... eBay has counted old neutrals that had ZERO bearing on a sellers' % points as -1 & are now equal to 1 NEGATIVE, and what's worse they didn't even forewarn anyone about it.
They also removed any mediation such as squaetrade and canceled the mutal feedback withdrawl like as though they were a communistic society.
My SOLID near 5 year reputation of 100% feedback went out the window down to 99.7 overngiht.
ALL three neutrals we got were from JERKS that did not pay us & ALL were retaliatory feedbacks.
IS that FAIR? HECK NO!
I don't know about you gals/guys I work extremely hard making my living & eBay is a very instrumental part of my business since my business is now web based.
This is how they treat good sellers like myself?
I can go on and on but what for your YES VOTE will be my VOICE!
Less than a month after the feedback 2.0 debacle which by the way has really hurt ALL SELLERS especially Powersellers of all levels.
The never ending eBay saga is going to kill sales of its sellers & eventually lead to eBay's own demise.
Our company has been in business for almost 32 years, in those years we've seen big companies come and go, we live in Houston and watched ENRON sink our entire neighborhood!
I don't know if you guys sell here, but those NO SALES & listings closing for less than actual cost or fair market value really hurt the everyone.
Face it folks, when sellers hurt everyone hurts, the only ones that are going to benifit from all this is eBay's corporate leaders!
They get rich off of MILLIONS of SELLERS' Backs while sellers like us GO POOR & get our GOOD REPUTATION DESTROYED BY our COMPETITION & FRAUDULENT MANIPULATIVE BUYERS.
Now eBay has done it again!
.....And NO FOLKS, it's not OOPS I DID IT AGAIN!
IT SEEMS THAT EVERY MONTH eBay WITH LITTLE OR NO NOTICE CHANGES THE RULES OF THE GAME WHICH ESSENTUALLY KILLS SELLERS LIKE MYSELF, KILLS SALES, AND ULTIMATLY ITS CUSTOMERS ALONG WITH OURS!
eBay's new PAYPAL only RULE for international sales WILL go into effect on July 9th, 2008 for US SELLERS!
You heard it here first as of July 9th 2008 YOU MUST accept PAYPAL ON ANY INTERNATIONAL SALE originating in the US.
We now feel ya' MATE!
We've been firmly against PAYPAL since PAYPAL allowed US to get SCREWED out of $5300 one one transaction then to add injury to insult allowed it to happen again less than a week later for get this $5850!
That's $11,150 in less than ONE WEEK MATE!
Not only did we LOSE the $11,150 (us) which really hurt our pockets we also lost our very expensive COINS that can not be replaced for under $25,000 in today's money.
SO who is eBay + PayPal really protecting?
Not it's sellers that's for sure!
NOW eBay+PayPal are going to force PAYPAL ONLY PAYMENTS to US sellers that ship to anyone outside the US.
Here's the kicker, if there's a fraudulent buyer he/she can simply telll PAYPAL they didn't get their item and BAM there goes your money and merchandise!
eBay & PayPal DOES NOT care when this happens they STILL GET THIER FEES!
Let's recap... No Money + No Merchandise + Seller Still Pays BOTH Fees = You do the math!
Now if that's not a MONOPOLY I don't know what is?!
I seriously hope the justice dept. puts a stop to this before eBay destroys its core & foundation that its SELLERS built!
WITHOUT SELLERS THERE WOULDN'T BE AN EBAY MUCH LESS PAYPAL!
So.... Basically starting on July 8th 2008 I will NO LONGER be able to sell to anyone outside of the US since I'm very firm in my principals by not accepting PAYPAL.
The sad part about this entire thing, I LOVE MY ASSIE AND CANADIAN customers to death, they are simply the friendliest bunch of Bloats!
You guys mean the world to me.
If any of my AUSSIE or CANADIAN customers just happen to read this & want to continue to do business with our company YOU have our email address.
Since we can no longer link up our website from our ME page the only option to buy from us will be via email.
I'm wondering what eBay is going to do next.
I mean come on PAYPAL is NOT A FREE service.
PAYPAL fees + EBAY FEES take nearly our entire PROFIT if we were to have to follow the PAYPAL only regulation for ALL sales which by the way WILL happen within the year for US sellers, we might as well go to the nearest homeless person and give away our coins, it's that bad on eBay these days.
We much rather give light to someone else's life than continue to feed corporate greed.
You bet I'm PISSED, if you're as PISSED as I am right now VOTE YES! & HELP ME GET TO THE TOP 25!
I'm currently ranked #84 out of all the millions of US users, I wouldn't be in the top 100 if it werent for the friendly people that have voted YES.
The very few NO votes we got, were for the most part were my competition and HATERS, that must love paying all those eBay + PayPal fees.
You guys are the very reason I type these guides!
It's almost 2am here in the states & I'm still up typing away!
You guys know who your are no need to RANT!
For everyone else...
Don't forget to VOTE YES so I can continue to help & inform others!
Thanks for your continued support and making us a !
