Before I head to my other auctions I wanted to clear up a few things.
1. I am not bashing any sellers, buyers or other users of Ebay. (just stating my opinion and feelings)
2. I don't bid on items with excessive s&h charges. (This is might right, and I don't tell anyone else not to)
3. I disagree with Ebay's new policy (again this is my right and it's not pushed on any of you) Reasons for disagreement: (A) Seller has every right to set a reserve if they so desire without being penalized for it with another charge. There is already a listing fee which is non-refundable if the item doesn't sell so if they set their reserve too high then they lose that fee anyway. (B) There shouldn't be a percentage of reserve set for the reasons stated in A. (C) If they wish to make it reveal the reserve price a set time period before the auctions end, I would have no problem with that. (but I can't speak for all the others)
4. I go to REAL auctions a lot and only on high ticket items do they have any sort of reserve price (which is usually a final bid amount set by the owner). Sure some auctions sell stuff in large lots while others break things down to individual items much like the listings you see on all the online auctions that are out there, but at least with those 'The Auctioneer' gets his commission and the seller gets their money.
Sure there are a lot of people out there that will settle for whatever they can get. Many don't stand up for what they believe in when it means making a sacrifice, but I for one stand by what I believe in enough to take the step somewhere else in search of it. Sure there are many good sellers on Ebay as I have found over the past couple of years. I can personally say I have bookmarked a few that I always checked to see what they had and if it was something to my interest. (Katz Coins), (Brieri), (davidhodges) which I have bought many items from with no problems, and will probably check back in to see what they have regularly. But I probably won't do much searching beyond that unless it's for a specific coin I need or want.
Now as for items relating to electronics or computers, my first stop will be at Onsale and if I can't find what I am looking for there for a reasonable price, then I will make a trip down to Computer Connection, Best Buy, Circuit City, CompUSA, or maybe one of the other local area computer stores.
In closing, I just want to thank Ebay for starting all this as it got me to start on my webpages and start all my looking through the internet for alternatives. If there is any of you that feel the same way as I do, or are just upset with this new system give me a quick note. You will be where you can leave me email. Or you can just Email me directly.
