      Is it True that People are Running Away from eBay?

      eBay is losing users all the time. There are other auction sites out there that are ready to step up. Am I right or what?

      I have had feedback from some of my buyers asking if I am on any other auction sites. Right now I can’t afford to spread my money around like that. But maybe I should start looking if people are running away from eBay now.

      Typically online shopping trends downward during the spring and summer months. It bounces back in fall and winter when the holiday and gift giving season kicks in. We will probably see a rebound during that time.

      No way eBay is bouncing back. They charge too much and there are too many scams running on the site. I think eBay is scrambling trying to keep what they have but they are continuing to lose.

      I’m with you DonaldYoung. I’m sick of eBay trying to rip off both sellers and buyers. I have started putting stuff up on Webstore. Not as many people but I like the layout and it is easier to post stuff.

      So do I need to take this seriously? Is eBay really losing that many? Do I need to start spreading my stuff out over all these different sites? Which ones are the ones I should use? There are WAY TOO MANY out there and I’m NOT going to spend that kind of money to post on every one of them.

      I don’t think one should panic. There are others out there to keep an eye on that seem to be on the rise. Here are some that I have used and have a decent amount of viewers.

      • Webstore
      • Bonanzle
      • eBid (I really like this one)
      • Overstock
      • eCrater

      Thanks but how about Amazon? Don’t they have an auction as well as store?

      Everyone this has been a trend for years now. As other auction sites improve their competitive value against eBay we will see this – it’s the way capitalism should be!

      I hope some of these sites kick eBay out of the top spot and soon. I’m sick of eBay’s arrogant attitude.
