In my 15 years as a seller on eBay Adchoice takes the prize for the worst thing that eBay has done to us. Adchoice is the most invasive use of your site for eBay interest. You are using prime space in my listings to navigate customers away from the listing that I paid for in a store that I pay for!!!! I do not list on eBay to sell Disneyland tickets! This is deplorable! For eBay to take customers from our listings to the sites of advertisers is a huge slap in the face!!!

I find the advertisements by ad choice extremely disruptive to my item being sold and piggish by EBay Corporate. If EBay wants to sell advertising space then give sellers an opt in or opt out choice. If we opt in share the proceeds as Google does.

This has been explained many times by eBay..........
You pay to list your item, but you "don't" own the page your listing is shown on. So they can put adds on the page, since eBay owns the actual page.
Think about this for a moment.............
If your potential buyers are "always" clicking that alternate link that takes them away from your selling page, then you need to do some work to keep them on and interested in your item. Your items page should be more interesting than that other link.
