I have had several emails and posts claiming the reason we left eBay had to do with the open letter published from an eBay seller. This was NOT the case. I will admit there were factors in that letter that went into the decision, but our reasons had more to do with needing to cut back on our workload. And when we looked at the choice, Amazon just put more money into our pocket when we compared the sites.
If you sell used and/or vintage products then eBay still may be a better choice. But since our sales are nearly 98% new products –then Amazon is working out better for us.
As for eBay, they have been beset with a series of really bad CEOs, and we can only hope they will eventually find a good one who will reassess and fix the many problems –or perhaps a better-managed company will just buy eBay outright.
If you do sell used and/or vintage (or handmade) products you may want to take a look at Etsy.com. They have issues and problems also –but no where as bad as eBay’s.
