I feel like the next step they'll take is they will start accepting offers that they feel is fair.
LOL!! Don't give them any ideas!

Yes...The recent changes stink. Hate the redirect to a "similar item" instead of the sold item. I know how to get there but making the site less intuitive and more clicks doesn't get me fired up to leave positive reviews of the changes...which they keep asking for. I also think the look of "My Ebay" in general, the tiny pictures on my active listings page and trying to find anything in my "sold" or "purchased" items stinks as well. The format was fine about 5 years ago. Not sure why they needed to "improve" it.

Another change I find interesting...though not sure eBay did anything to cause the comeback auctions are making on eBay. A few years back eBay was striving to become another Amazon and auctions were slowly becoming obsolete. Now nearly everything in my watch list is auction format. Not sure what caused the shift back...and I have mixed feelings on it. I hate the inconvenience of having to wait 7 or 10 days for the thing to end...but like the fact you can usually get a better price in auction format than buy it now....that is if you remember to snipe in the closing seconds. I only sell things "buy it now or best offer". Is eBay offering some kind of deal if you do auction format? Can't see myself going back to it.

Default ebay change

One change that irks me is when they started charging $13 per month to access a CSV file of my sales, which I refuse to pay. Since then, I've decreased my items for sale and accounting for my sales has returned to the dark ages.

Default top rated sellers getting shafted

Buy a card try to resell higher or request a minimum grade and when you don't get it......return it on the sellers dime {seems reasonable doesn't it} or buy that shirt wear it to the party than return it. I mean really; come on man...
(3) use a product catalog with stock images{another brain storm}
(4) never be able to leave buyer negative feedback; great idea how are we sellers supposed to know the good from the bad but I guess there are no bad buyers.
(5) make it difficult to look up past prices. {thank god for vcp & psa prices realized}
(6) remove the see sellers other items feature or make it harder to search a sellers store {another brainstorm}

The list goes on and on. I am not sure who is behind all this but in a few years when they -ebay- get bought out for pennies on the $; they will wonder what & how did that happen......
all these new rules applies to Top Rated Sellers only !!!!
if you are Top Rated and you want to continue getting 10% off sellers final sale fees and have top rated seller badge shown you must comply with new requirements , if you do not want discount , dont do it opt out. this is Just another way ebay can save money at top rated sellers expense.
Lets face it most bad buyers will say item is not as described so as not to pay for return shipping. having to accept return for fear of negative feedback.
You have to do the bean count, last year I saved over $785 in discounted top rated seller fees , I had two people return items out of 1085 transactions during that period . So I will take my chances, and wait for the next crazy ebay requirement , to screw us top rated sellers out of any discounts
