Not happy with the direction eBay is taking?

This is a new site. One where you can buy and sell, like eBay. But what makes it different than eBay is they have referral contests (my sponser cashed in one & has already received her money- $100!!) Become a catagory expert and make money. Add info to existing catagories, make money. Cash in a referral contest...make money!! This site is still expanding into different catagories all the time. Each time a new catagory opens, more earning opportunities become available. And of course, much like eBay, you can buy and sell items there. No fees paid for items that sell for less than $25. The site is still in Beta testing, growing everyday and paying out to winners of contests. Get in early and put yourself in postion to create a great stream of income!! No referral links allowed in this thread, so you'll have to send me a pm or friend request for additional info!

What is the site? Have you sold anything on the site? I haven't had much luck other with other sites other than ebay. Normally when I list on a new site I am one of a few sellers in the category and none of them have the same products or the quantity. So competition isn't the problem. The newer sites do not have the traffic. But it does sound interesting with the category expert and other incentives. I've read the other posts and would like say, Hasn't ebay always been an online garage sale? Didn't some guy start ebay so that his girlfriend could trade Pez dispensers? They are forgetting about how they started and what made them into what they have become. Their own greed will be their downfall. They are forgetting about their roots. I make money on ebay and will continue to sell there until the site does not exists unless they make more changes that do not benefit the seller. A person can only take so much.

This new site is completely different than eBay. You can sell (and of course buy) but you list under an item listing. For example, if you're selling a Wii game unit, you place your listing with the other listings. No one knows who the sellers are until they are ready to purchase, you're listing is just group in with the others. They have what they call "category experts". It's a new site so they are looking for people that are very well versed in the category. Someone who can add important info to the category. They allow you to "claim" the category and you can earn a small % on the sales for your category. Or you can contribute info in existing categories and earn. It's a new site and they are in a constant state of adding new categories all the time. When they receive a request, they begin working on adding it to the site, all with the info you share with them. I'll send a link to via a pm! Thanks for responding.

I hope to be a category expert. I know my field very well and have a lot of products to fill the category. I'm crossing my fingers.

Very cool! A few people from my cash back site have shown proof of payments from this site for $100 and up! I have a few category inquiries pending and from what I understand, even if you're denied because they are yet building that category, they still record that you were the 1st to make the inquiry. I don't know if that means when they get to building up that area, if they come back to you first, but... If eBay continues to blow off their sellers, the buyers will also be looking to other sites for their needs. I'll look for you on the site!

"Me likey" Seriously, that is so cool. I would love to be able to use something other than Ebay as Ebay has turned into "Stealbay". So, having said that, what are the terms of protection for both the buyer and the seller? What payment method is allowed? Thanks ahead.

I can't say that I have ever been happy with ebay. What's this site you are talking about. Send me a PM about it and I'll have a look.

I still like to surf the site looking for some supplies I might use in my crafting, but I'm not thrilled selling there either. PM sent.
