At one time I made twice the money selling on ebay vs my website. Now i do much better selling through my website. You can no longer sell anything under $20 and make a profit. (unless you stole it)
They are also changing our control panel and other ways to use their website which really suck.
Go to their discussion boards and you will see hundreds of unhappy people.
I lost my power seller status last year and they been calling me ever since wanting me to get my sales back up so I can get it back. I'm sure they mean it since they were making 20% or more on my sales. Plus now you can only use pay pal as a payment method. (another 2 to 3%) We can no longer take checks or money orders.
