EBAY Is NOT for Professional Business
All - Complaint
WHATEVER, MAINE -- After 8 years on Ebay and putting up with their totally unfair practices I have finally decided ENOUGH! I'm letting my listing run out as I paid ASTRONOMICAL FEES for them. I am closing my shop. In 3 days I made 6 sales and have to pay eBay more than I made! That right their is ROBBERY! Plus I am already sick of their "ya right" ads saying, "We care about sellers". NO you do NOT eBay! On what planet is it "right" and "just" for a buyer to keep an item AND get their money back?
I have a return policy..which eBay says I MUST have...it is...return the item and receive a full refund...yet eBay allows them to keep the item! NO WAY is that even remotely fair to a seller! I have yet to return an item to any brick and mortar store where I got my $ back PLUS kept the item! They have so many little icons for so many stupid things...I do NOT have time to figure out all of them! And just TRY to get on the phone with them...LMAO! TOTAL BS! I have grown to HATE eBay!
I loathe the ignorant buyers that pay with an e-check and than ask "how soon can you ship it?" ANY other shop requires instant payment! Their little auction format has finally come full circle to bite them in the arse! And...the feedback system and DSM'r of whatever they call their silly star system for "top rated" sellers is BOGUS! Any jerk can leave low stars if they have a bad day and I have jumped through hoops to make them happy! I'll tell you have screwed up their system is: I have 2 ID's...one is a store that I work my arse off at...yet because of a couple people leaving low scores I don't qualify for "top rated seller" sellers status. The other is one I sell junk on and could care less...yet that one qualifies for "top rated seller"! HOW STUPID!
Since I AM a professional and have worked many years at building a "brand" it is NO longer in my companies best interest to be associated with eBAY in ANY way! Ebay is for low lives, for idiots and for half arse companies that just don't care about their reputation! I'm closing down on E-RIP-OFF...sick and tired of them STEALING from me! I hope one day a class action suit is brought against them....AGAIN for their unfair business practices! WHO MADE WHO EBAY????
