This video contains misleading - and even untrue - information.
You first have to understand where this is coming from: It is from a group of "Power Sellers", who just may have to improve their service to buyers.
First of all, listings for the first quarter thus far are up 12 percent, year-over-year, according to American Technology Research analyst Tim Boyd.
Next, why would buyers strike? It costs the buyer nothing to purchase on eBay. In fact, none of the changes affect a buyer negatively, and some will help.
eBay has announced a change to the fees for listing items on eBay. Less expensive items will actually be cheaper to list; however, fees for listing more expensive items will go up. So you can imagine that the folks putting out information such as shown in this video are those selling expensive items.
The feedback change that has these sellers inflamed includes the fact that buyers can still leave negative feedback for sellers, but sellers will no longer be able to leave negative feedback for buyers. Also, the big boys, called Power Sellers, will have the placement of their listings depend on their feedback rating. If they do a great job, their listing goes to the top - a lousy job sends them down the page. So ask yourself which sellers are angry about the fee changes?
Similarly, the changes to PayPal do not affect buyers. For sellers, the 21-day hold would apply to only a small percentage of purchases and appears to me to be good business sense.
I could be wrong, but I think you'll find that not many sellers who are doing a good job will be joining this "strike".
It has become very easy to produce a one sided "ad" these days - and not just the ones for political candidates!
