Ebay Marketplace Update 2018
« on: August 08, 2018, 01:19:22 AM »
You might want to read this. Media products such as books and DVDs for store owners are going up to 12% for both store and non-store subscribers. With no change (reduction) in pay-pal fees, the difference in the cost of selling media between Amazon and Ebay will shrink. I just hope I get to keep my small discount with having the top-rated-plus status.

Other important information is in the update. It might be worth a read depending on what you sell there.

Thanks!
I've been cleaning out my own DVD's in the last month.
Grandchildren are now in possession of the Disney dvd's.
I'm keeping 4 that I have a hard time streaming from any of the legit sites.
The rest I'm working on deciding where to sell.

I think we might have to open up our own marketplace. Get our friends and family to advertise it for us. I can advertise it to the kids in my class and we all know that kids will spread the word like wildfire.

Interesting.
We used to have a marketplace on this site for self-selling certain items we didn't want to waste time on putting on an ecommerce site.

How did it do? Was it advertised at all?

It was ok.
Nothing earth shattering.
Our members who used the marketplace were in charge of their own marketing, backlinks and more.
That was also when we had a blog for this forum.
Members would upload an item into our marketplace, then use their blog via this forum to market and backlink.
Ended up closing it down as members moved onto eCrater, back to eBay, Amazon or focused on their Shopify which was more seo friendly.
