Selling on Ebay has been making me mad!

I’ve been selling things on Ebay lately, usually clothes that don’t fit me anymore. Some things never fit me so I never wore them and they’re still brand new. Ebay suggests a starting price, which is nice, because I don’t have to research how much something is going for. But it’s a really low starting price, like $2 or $3 and I hope the bidding will start and I’ll get like $10 or $15 for some items. But no....after I list the item, about an hour later, Ebay will add an “Or Best Offer” option to my listing. Why would I want someone to offer LESS THAN a $2 starting price? So I go back to my listing and turn off the “Best Offer” option. But Ebay turns it right back on! I got tired of having to keep changing it but it always changes back. So I decided to just leave the Best Offer on, and instead, I change the starting price and make it higher. It’s less work for me. But the whole thing is still irritating. Is anyone else frustrated with this new way Ebay is doing these things?

I give the unfit dresses in charity to the poor. Selling them on eBay is hectic.

Hi there, I do give some things to charity, but other things I know I paid a lot of money for I try to get some money back on ebay.

Hi my friend.. I figured how this thing in ebay annoys you. I am not really familiar with this since i don't sell in ebay but rather buy a few things from there. Maybe the next thing you should do is indeed place your item on a higher price.

Never sold anything on Ebay and I think it must be pretty frustrating.

I don't sell online. If that's how they do business, I'd use another selling site or donate my things to a charity.

Not on eBay as I haven't sold on it. But on some other website, yes I feel annoying
