half.com is an ebay company. You can sell media items on it. You probably have a link to it somewhere on your homepage. You can list for free on half and pay only when it sells.  You probably inadvertantly listed something on it and forgot about it. You may have listed, for example, a DVD Batman with a certain UPC under another Batman DVD having a different UPC. That would give you an mc999 violation. When they find one, it gets removed and you get a warning.  You have to be exact when listing to be sure you DVD, VHS, SNES, or other item is listed correctly.  If you have high enough ratings your half listing will show up on ebay too. I have been told that half.com was named for the town, Half, where the main company is located. They thought it would be catchy, like everything is half price. Well, that's not true, but you can get real good deals. Last evening I bought my son 2 good movies he was looking for on from sellers on half.


 


I find it's mostly resellers buying to fullfill their orders when they can't find theirs. Can't say I haven't done it myself, but only on rare occasion, some do it all the time.  I wonder if they even have any stock.
