    I thought I'd heard that a while back...but it seems like it's just a rumor, to me.

    I wouldn't be sad at all to see it considering how many loyal sellers they have screwed in the past year or two by changing their terms to not protect the seller at. all.

    Yeah, nothing on google....

    but I've been hearing this since about 2007. It was going around the boards there. They just keep exchanging people on their board of directors!

    I am so tired of Ebay.

    I tossed the idea of switching everything to OLA to the office manager this morning. She said she would look into it and then we could all sit and try to decide if switching would be "doable"

    Seeing as how Ebay is charging us and making it hard for us to sell. I think ANYTHING will be better. If they dont want to go to OLA I am going to try and convince them to let me set up a .com and be free standing.

    OLA isn't too bad- they just don't have the worldwide exposure of FEEbay yet. I am about done with ebay- it's too expensive, and geared to buyers of new stuff now. I use etsy.com for vintage, the rest goes on OLA.com, which is MUCH less expensive! [​IMG]
