eBay’s Actions Evoke Strong Emotional Angry Reactions
And something new arises…
Sellers’ Union & Buyers’ Association Together
“We’ve had enough of eBay, Inc! With the recent fee hikes, we no longer believe that the corporate-run eBay site serves the needs of its users, we who made that site in the first place. However, the eBay Community now has a massive userbase. We must secure the commitment of a critical mass of sellers in order to develop a realistic alternative.
If we can secure the commitment of 10,000 eBay members to migrate to a new site, that will give us the numbers we need to make the move without risking our livelihoods. Run the seller unity badge in your sales, wherever they are! We’ll show FeeBay who really runs that site!”
Seems that many of these folks have been down this road with eBay previously and these new changes have added to the anger felt before. I’d wonder if the new “powers that are,” i.e. John Donahoe et al, gave that consideration when they dreamed these revised terms up?
I think I’d also feel disenfranchised as this person does;
“The REAL issues? FEEDBACK - PayPal’s new (Patriot Act) payment withholding rules.
I don’t know about anyone else, but if buyers can leave me negative feedback, just because they feel like it, completely protected by my inability to respond in kind, AND dispute an item at the same time, causing PayPal to withhold payment to me for up to 21 days, just because they feel like it. If it were an expensive item, it could bankrupt me, JUST ONE!
What reason would a serious business person have to invite that kind of abuse? What kind of businessperson would subject themselves to that kind of danger???”
