eBay has finally added phone support which was long in coming. They have also instituted some policies that protect buyers from unscrupulous sellers such as those that try to keep your money without sending your item and sellers that sucked and when you gave them well deserved negative feedback they would retaliate and give you negative feedback for no reason. I commend eBay for trying to make it a better place for the buyers and for trying to weed out the sellers that are worthless losers that try their best to give you nothing for your money and a headache to boot. There are still problems but things are getting better. Now, let the tirade of those crapolla sellers begin!

PAYPAL, AN eBay COMPANY, ARE NOW STARTING TO HOLD FUNDS OF THEIR SELLERS WITHOUT CAUSE AND WITHOUT WARNING.
THEY WERE FINED BY NEW YORK STATE AND LOST MILLIONS IN A LAWSUIT FOR THIS
YET THEY JUST STARTED DOING IT AGAIN.
BECAUSE OF THE ECONOMY THEY MAY BE IN TROUBLE AND THERE IS NO PROTECTION AS THEY ARE NOT A BANK.
PAYPAL ACCOUNT HOLDERS:
DO NOT SEND OUT ANY MERCHANDISE UNTIL YOU CAN VERIFY THE PAYMENT IS IN YOUR BANK!
DO NOT TRUST PAYPAL, DON'T BE A VICTIM!
DO NOT USE PAYPAL AS A PAYMENT METHOD!
DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY BANKNING INFORMATION!
KEEP UPDATED ON PAYPAL BY GOING TO:
***PLEASE SEND THIS TO SOMEONE YOU KNOW WHO USES eBay AND/OR PAYPAL SO THEY CAN PROTECT THEMSELVES.

Is there a way to get Cash Back on an item I just bought?

I used to use eBay for my IT equipment (computers, VoIP...) but 75% of my favorite sellers are gone fishing. I purchased a 24" LCD screen from the seller buy, received a 17", I returned the screen then spent 8 weeks dealing with Buy.com, eBay and PayPal to get a refund! I left a negative feedback that wasn't published.
Even as an eBay stockholder, after the recent policy change I am forced to say I don't like the way eBay treats sellers. Forcing sellers to accept Paypal and taking away their ability to post negative feedback pretty much forces the ten - to twenty-five items a year sellers off eBay. What small seller can afford poating fee plus 5% closing plus Paypal transaction fee plus another 5% to Paypal?
The small sellers used to be where the bargains were found. Now, for the most part, they've left or ratcheted up their prices to reflect eBay's outrageous fees.
As for the way Paypal treats buyers AND sellers, it makes me ashamed to be a stockholder.
eBay has got to get off their "we're the only venue" pedestal, eat massive crow and accept that they're not "entitled" to posting cost plus 5% of the closing cost plus Paypal transaction fee plus another Paypal 5% of the closing cost.
AT&T effectively no longer exists because of a few guys from MCI who had a better idea. eBay should take note.

I used to love eBay. It was like a garage sale 24/7 if I avoided the dealers. But lately it's changed. The small sellers cleaning out their closet have been disappearing and it's been taken over by dealers who should really be selling off their own website. I can usually beat the price just hunting down a coupon code off the internet. I did discover Etsy for handmade items which is nice for gifts. But I miss the ol eBay. Anyone know of alternatives?

don't understand the venom here. If you don't like eBay, don't use it. The vast majority of their customers have a good experience or they wouldn't be so successful. Paypal SUCKS
