Re: Ebay sales Dropped Why so Slow?

in reply to demarl2

If I sell a painting for 1000.00

I end up with about 800.00 or less, that iclude paypal charges.........I m going to wait it out. I hope Google buys eBay and Paypal. There is a stong possiblity they will. I do not consider my a self a seller, rather a client of eBay. In my opinion Ebay, is now attemping to treat Their Clients better, but more needs to be done for us. Forcing me to get a Ebay store, is eBay pursuing Client Loyalty. Simular to another online market place.

You have to use the "sell similiar" feature not the relist feature.

Part of it is Google and eBay, are not  playing nice with each other. Google threw a 200,000 surcharge to eBay's bill for spamming over the limit.

At first I thought it might have been the merchandise that I was selling however those items had a good track record of selling on colpleted items at a good price even when I dropped my price by 50% still no sales the whole month of May until I came across this post and realized it wasn't just me numerous people complaining of the same circumstances, it is evident that there is a underlying problem and where there's smoke there is fire.

I had a good memorial day, so I guess ebay decided to turn my listings off...they are now all missing. 

 

WONDERFUL!!!!!

 

I have 147 items, yet only 2 show up.  What gives?

 

Here is the RSS feed...I use it to keep track of these suspicious activities...perhaps this is why RSS is no longer a feature?

UPDATE....Looks like 3 are now there.  I guess they are slowly being added back?

 

No wonder sales die off, then come in spurts.

 

I knew there were rolling blackouts going on...but this is the first time I actually see it first hand.

Sales went from 65 mph to a dead stop on the shoulder and  no emergency Road service is on the way!!  however I might convert my listings to read free and if you are happy with the item please make a donation so I can buy some food and pay some bills

Wrong answer.  Someone who is newer to eBay and doesn't have as many feedbacks is JUST as welcome here as veterans of eBay are.

It "appears" HIDY-HOO had your comments removed. The Truth Will set you Free!! Posting ID HIDY-HOO is not a seller, rather a eBay helper, who helps new sellers showing them the ROPES!



W.O.W.  Possibly the biggest load of tripe I have ever seen here in one post..... Hidy IS in fact one of the more helpful posters here, which is more than I've seen from your complaining.... further, that ID is her POSTING ID, not the ID she sells under, although after seeing this, I'm not willing to tell you what her selling ID is.  Personal attacks are against the rules here, from what I remember.... maybe you should keep that in mind when you post.... just sayin'.

Re: Slow Sales On Ebay The Good News

in reply to itisonly_rockandroll

January 2015 Business News

 

 

eBay reported earnings for the fourth quarter of 2014 on Wednesday night, and it was mostly brutal news from the online marketplace. The company's revenue fell short of expectations, and the company announced it will cut 2,400 jobs, or 7% of its total workforce, early this year.
So why is eBay's outlook so bad? Just take a look at the company's gross merchandise volume (GMV), which represents the total value of goods sold — it's a good indicator for how healthy an e-commerce site like eBay is doing. Based on the company's data charted for us by BI Intelligence, eBay's GMV growth has slowed down considerably to just 2% year-over-year, down from 13% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Even though this is bad news for eBay, BI Intelligence believes this could make it a more attractive target for an acquisition once it splits from PayPal later this year. Though eBay faces increased competition and, last year, suffered a massive security breach, it is still a household name that could help a company's standing in the e-commerce market for a relatively cheap price tag.
