Complaint / review text:
I have been an eBay seller for over 10 years. I have watched as eBay has added new policy after new policy that knocks down US sellers and promotes Chinese Sellers to directly provide goods to consumers. Not only does this hurt the US economy, it circumvents customs duties, Safety protection on goods that may otherwise be unsafe for a US company to sell, and is damaging to small businesses throughout the US.
For buyers on eBay, I'm sure you have noticed a huge increase in Chinese Sellers on eBay. It's for a reason. EBay promotes the direct sale from China to the consumer. Customs duties are a way to promote fair competition among US sellers and international sellers. With Chinese sellers shipping USPS International ePackets, DHL, FedEx, etc, describing the goods as gifts, they are circumventing the basis of our economy.
EBay continually slams, freezes eBay seller accounts by creating more and more policies that sellers cannot adhere to. First limiting the types of items, limited the amounts of listings a seller can have, and most recently, controlling what pictures a seller can use to sell their items. Forget eBay, Amazon all the way. At least they take care of their own, US sellers and not foreign businesses. My eBay sales have gone from $15k/month to $5k. Soon to be $0 when I completely bail ship.
