Has eBay Finally Gone Too Far? EBay\'s Arrogance Paves The Way For The Competition.

    Ebay sellers, both large and small, continue to speak out-it's no longer just business, it's personal!

Grants Pass, Oregon--According to a statement issued on Monday by Professional eBay Sellers Alliance (PESA), representing 600 of eBay's largest sellers who account for over $1 billion in annual eBay sales, "The history and spirit of the eBay marketplace is one of partnership between buyers, sellers and eBay. Historically, eBay has benefitted only when buyers and sellers have benefitted."

That no longer being the case, sellers have ramped up their search for alternative marketplaces and discovered there are other choices. Chat rooms, message boards and petitions, are buzzing with activity as eBay sellers and former eBay sellers express their refusal to accept such a huge, unprecedented increase in fees.

"No amount of advertising could come close to the increase in activity our site has experienced in the past week," said Chris Fain, founder and CEO of "As a former eBay Power Seller, selling $1 million a year in merchandise, I always knew this day would come."

It was for exactly this reason Fain spent the past seven years taking something that was great and making it

"We brought together a team of programmers from all over the world with eBay Power Sellers and more than a century of auctioneering experience to design what we believe is the most feature rich, fun and safe online auction site in the world," said Fain.

While some auction sites are exceeding capacity and experiencing unscheduled shut downs, many Power Sellers continuing their search for the ultimate online auction experience have found they're way to, feature for feature, is the best deal in town.
