"eBay has a master plan, and they are executing it in small steps. The final goal of this plan is still a mystery, but the more changes they roll out, the more I feel like my small business isn't welcome there anymore."
Today I checked in on Skip McGrath's blog, only to find a very similar post - except he actually made a list of possible outcomes:
- Will eBay eventually abandon the auction format altogether?
- Will eBay eventually abandon the sale of used goods including antiques and collectibles?
- Will eBay announce tiered listing fees for large sellers or continue to seek out and do private deals with large sellers?
If you have a small business selling vintage on eBay, my advice is to start branching out. The days of being an eBay only business are pretty much over - and the chance that at some point in the future being on eBay at all no longer being an option is growing every day...
