I research the value of my items by doing a Google Search. When I see an item of interest and the seller happens to be on ebay, 8 out of 10 times it will state that the seller offers "Free Shipping" only to find out, after clicking on the link, that this is FALSE! Surely this is a sneaky ebaytatic to lure buyers in and toss the average seller out! I do not see this happening on the Big Box sellers items.
I had been selling on ebay since Nov 2000, but was forced to run far away from ebay as their new policies are forcing many sellers to leave.
Now I am seeking ebay alternatives.
Surprisingly, this ebay alternative seeking journey has been an exciting learning experience.
At first I was scared to branch out and try new online selling sites, but now it's all good.
Never give up! It will pay off for you one day!
