This is just counter productive.
Why don’t they do something to encourage more buyers on Ebay?
There are already too many sellers, often selling the same thing, at commercially suicidal prices. These gimmicks aimed at casual sellers don’t help.
Keeping the site running (it’s been almost impossible to buy anything after about 5pm each evening due to slowness) should be a priority.
Buyers can go anywhere, so incentivising them to shop on Ebay would benefit all Ebay sellers and Ebay itself.
The move towards increased dead fees (shop subs etc) suggests Ebay can’t generate enough from fvf fees alone (actual sales) to keep their share price up.
They really are taking advantage of the UK business sellers now. They really could tackle Amazon on price as they simply do not have the overheads. All the can think is to increase FEES on Shops. No imagination No innovation. All about the next Q.
You are correct about the site it is truly become awful, people will just leave and shop elsewhere
eBay messaging is horrendously slow & has been for weeks now on every browser available. I reckon the site is just too old & falling apart. So much is wrong & that they would have to shut the site down to fix everything, which they are not prepared to do. They will continue to keep quiet about their embarrassments & tax the sellers to make a profit until there are no wheels on their wagon.
