Ebay may well be the largest online auction house, but thier "rules" seem illegal IMHO.
Specifically, I do not believe eBay should be able to force sellers to use their parent company, PayPal, forcing you pay to twice for making a sale, while prohibiting you from listing other types of processes of accepted funds. As long as PayPal was an "option", I didnt mind. But it is no longer a choice to accept it, and that angers me. I believe the legal term for this action is "collusion"?
In addition. I recently listed some items on eBay, and they used the wrong email address for paypal, an address I havnt used in years. I have recieved funds previously from the new address, so I have no clue where the old address came from, and eBay appologised, not knowing why either. However, I had payments of thousands of dollars at stake, and while they were able to recover the funds, the remaining auctions they claimed they were not able to "fix", and advised I end them early. Only by doing so, I had to accept the highest bid, losing whatever potential increase in auction price the items may have recieved.
As such, it will be a cold day in Hell before I list anything, or purchase anything on eBay.
Perhaps if a few brave souls would choose another online auction house, like the second largest, and if some of us would purchase off of it, we could create sometrhing of an Exodus away from eBay. Sort of like how many here today have arrived here.
