How long till eBay dies a death? Fewer and fewer private sellers bother with it now. Its just a dumping ground for dodgy Chinese tat and overstock/returns from high street retailers.

Why? If eBay buyers are in Argos stores collecting relatively low-priced (under £10.00) items, without buying anything else from Argos, whilst hindering progress of Argos' core customers/staff, ensuring a minimum commission on each eBay collection means they can budget staffing resources more effectively (& ultimately decide if the eBay collection side-project is lucrative enough to continue in the medium to long term).

How many of us have collected eBay items from Argos & bought something from Argos at the same time?

Very few, if any, I would suggest.

You're right.

Lokal is great though. It doesn't look like a jumble sale & you can create new accounts right now.

Oh.

I'm done with selling on eBay now - an item that finished at £40 on a BIN and £3.95 postage and I'm left with £33.91 before I take into account cost of packaging materials and my time. It's over 15% in fees and I'm not prepared to factor that in anymore, especially as I only really sell games and a few second hand bits. I can get almost as much trading into CEX or Gumtree and I don't have to worry about idiots claiming non delivery and suchlike

Ebay is being destroyed by its own policy makers by overcharging sellers, They will not listen, They are arrogant ****.
This company could do so much for humanity and help many many more people from all around the world to trade and sell to each other and make a living in what will be a declining job world because of technology. The costs are to much with the crooked paypal fee, Paypal are owned by Ebay so they should make a combined fee totalling no more than 10% Overall. Greed by Ebay management is the problem, they are disgusting pigs if you look at the annual profits for basically being a monopolistic middleman.

just be aware Gumtree are owned by Ebay so if enough people exit the Ebay site(which I agree are useless)then I am sure ebay will decide to impose some form of fees for Gumtree,you cannot win,until somebody puts serious money into an Ebay rival we are stuck with Ebay rip off fees

I agree with you, its not about the value of the item being collected it increases footfall into the stores, which in turn will l have its benefits for the store.

Gumtree is already charging, And i will say that the free ads are way down the list of exposure,Gumtree are actively spoiling for Ebay, they are spies for Ebay, they are working together to keep up the monopoly trust me. Gumtree are also being used by mass scammers, As soon as you put an add on Gumtree you will get scam calls regularly, I now use windows 10 mobile only to put adds on there because you can block the numbers ever calling you again with that.

I now use shpock to sell, totally free and very easy to list items on there. https://www.google.co.uk/search?ie=UTF-8&client=tablet-android-samsung&source=android-browser&q=shpock&gfe_rd=cr&ei=brbBWKa7FKmn8weF05rAAw

PayPal and eBay were forced to split and don't own each other anymore. Well they should do anyway

I hate Ebay but you still can't beat the audience that they give sellers. I have tried Ebid in the past but never had much joy. Gumtree i can't stand and do not use.

My stuff goes on facebook pages 1st but theres far too many listings each day and your stuff gets lost quickly, don't get me started on the time wasters (both when buying and selling), then the stuff goes on Ebay as collection only, if people are really interested they'll message to ask for postage costs. Then once the weather picks up the stuff will be off to a boot sale.

Argos is probably the side that asked for it.

Use eBay purely for the audience it offers but still dislike it.

Some guy who purchased an item of mine is hinting at a partial refund. Sorry you either return it for a full refund or leave me negative feedback. The item was in remarkable condition and i am not playing ball with people trying to get an even bigger bargain.

I've found Gumtree a complete waste of time whenever I've tried to sell on there. Facebook in my area the same - zero interested in fairly priced items where I am, people wanting things for a quid or two!

Schpock has been somewhat decent but the amount of people who will ask a specific question - and then say NOTHING when you reply is staggering! I can't fathom why they'll sit there and type a question when they clearly don't want the item..

eBay..my items are basically snatched out of my hands if I price them correctly and write up a decent description. I've got wise and started selling when eBay email me codes

Now..what can I buy/sell on eBay to make money since I'm getting decent at it? I can't think of anything that isn't already done oO
