Does anyone else out there feel as though ebay is the only one making good money? I mean picture fees,transaction fees, selling fees, gallery fees...etc...and all we have made in the end is a little change.

I hear ya! I used to love to sell occasional items on ebay. Everytime I cleaned out my closets I would have a few items I would post on there, but anymore if you are small time seller like me it totally isn't worth it. There are so many larger sellers who can afford to pay the photo fees, etc, that those of us that don't put photos on the galleries are in a HUGE disadvantage and often do not even get views on our pages. I'd love to try and sell a few more items on there, but I think if I did I would have to do it on a larger scale than just a few things here and there.

That sounds like a good thing to do. Now as a shopper, I love to visit ebay, you can find just about anything you can possibly look for. But as a seller, blah!

Ebay has the monopoly on internet auctions, and they are making a killing. I have opened a store on ecrater, listings are 100 percent free with no final sales fees. To view my store go to http://www.melissasawesomegems.ecrater.com to check them out. Sell there maybe we can give ebay a little competition and force them to lower some of those fees.

The fees are definatly eating up most of my profit too! They keep going up - combine that with the increase in shipping and I am making very little!
