Ebay has serious problems from the way they deal with there sellers and changes to there site.

 

These news reports below show there is a growing problem and it seems to be getting worse. Amazon offers sellers free listing and from the reports below keeps pulling aways ebay sellers. I wonder why Amazon keeps getting ebay sellers to sell there. MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE YOU CAN LIST FOR FREE THERE! If this was 10 years ago Etsy could not have become a company back then, and Etsy is not the only company in the past few years that has come into being to take away business from the ebay web site all these new company's offer free listing to sellers. Ebay was King of the hill and acted that way with it's sellers, saying if you don't like it tough where else can you go. They still have the same king of the hill attitude with sellers because for some reason they still think they can strong arm people but sellers give ebay the bird and move there business to over a dozen other web site's now and ebay sit's there and thinks it's 2005 again and they can do what they want and the users here have to take it. Ebay has become a old fat whale and all the Sharks from big ones like Carl Icahn to the little ones smell blood in the water and are moving in.

Don't quite understand the reasons behind this. I have been with ebay over 10 years. 100% rating... All of a sudden I  don't have the same amount of free listings per month. Have had 50 ... down to 20 ... that is 60% loss.... Why... To help buyers? That is really all I got from my conversation with Ebay. It feels like a punishment to me... but I have done everything right.... We need a new competitor out there... any ideas of other selling resources?
