Discussion in 'Transformers On Ebay' started by Red leader, Jul 7, 2008.
just opened an account and wondered if anyone has any experience with it ??
Hopefully it continues to grow and becomes a true competitor to ebay.
unfortunetely, it probobly won't.
frikkin between ebay and paypal, i lose about 15% of my earnings. suck asses.
Yeah, I'm starting to notice the hit between those two things and shipping.
The only way it will grow is if we start using it, ebay seems to be moving away from the garage sale / niche collectable markets which made them great, also ebids fees are miles better, no listing or final value fees, WOOP! WOOP!
sure you can get a few thousand people to use it, but that's like trying to get people to use some random new search engine instead of google.
not going to happen.
besides, I'm sure these ebid guys would eventually charge fees, etc...ebay used to be free too, right?
Yep and if no one ever used google or ebay then they wouldnt have grown.
I think I might take a look at this ebid.
Now all we need is an alternative to PayPal...BidPay was awesome when they had their online money order system.
Is Google Checkout any good?
ebay owns paypal. at this point, they will be the online auction and payment system for generations to come. it's impossible to stop them, much like microsoft.
i tried ebid, i can't even find 1 of anything i am usually looking for.
Yes. Just like Paypal, only I'm not restricted for 'suspicious activity'.
It would be great if ebid could become a serious rival to ebay, as has been said though, I can never find anything I want on it.
Hope it works for you though Red Leader, boo to ebay!
Just takes more and more dealers opening shop over there i would think. Will be rough for a while tho.
I just opened an account there. I think I'm gonna start moving some of my stuff over there
