Complaint / review text:
I am writing you to try and get your help on having someone investigate and let your viewers know about what’s going on eBay. Hopefully, eBay will address these issues. EBay has a set of rules that sellers should follow, however, Chinese sellers are violating these rules (Duplicate listing policy, Shill bidding policy, item location policy) to name a few. EBay must know they are, yet they still are allowing them to sell. It is unfair to U.S. Sellers to try and sell on eBay, not only do we have to sell our items for their dirt cheap prices, but we have to put up with their unfair practices. They use different accounts to list the same item just changing the brand in some cases even though it is the same item, they also change their location. They overwhelm eBay with their listings so that their items sell.
U.S. Sellers waste their money on listing fees only for their items not to sell. I've had 300 unsold items that I've wasted my money on listing fees. I’ve also had competitors bid on my items and not pay to waste my time and money to discourage me from selling. EBay needs to address these issues and the public should be made aware.
I looked into 1 swimwear item currently listed on eBay and was shocked to find that 1 seller can use the same photos and item and just listed under different accounts, change the location, price and title to get away with violating eBay’s policies. Their product sells and I end up with an unsold item because I was honest and followed their policies. Please help, I am struggling to get by and make a living. I want to continue selling on eBay, but would like them to please address these issues.
