  1. Sorry but the Ebay business model for small businesses doesn't work anymore. Ebay is not interested in the small seller. They now cater to large companies. At first, Ebay was great place for small business, then it was a great place for small business to market themselves, and now it can be a complete waste of time. Put your control in your hands and not Ebay's. Best option now is your own website and market your site with social media. Trust me. That's the new business model.

  2. On a side note just look at last years winner “knetgolfcanada” .They only have 127 listings right now (in the middle of the gold season) and do you think they have a website?? Absolutely.
