eBay Managed Payments

Recommended Posts

Every seller will be forced to use this system and trust me, it's not that bad right now compared to when we started months ago !


What's more concerning is the fact that eBay changed and / or updated their platform algorithm and is not very friendly with the Militaria categories...., some of you eBay sellers with a lot of listing may have noticed a weird pattern on the sales, meaning, sometimes you will have 2 or 3 similar items sold the same day and none for weeks etc... it's due to the Algo

On thing I did is to reduce the head title with very simple key words, " WWII Army uniform " will do much better than " WWII US Army dress uniform tunic ", not sure why since the Algorithm formula is more protected than Fort Knox but I've just realized that not to long ago... but I may be wrong, I'm still trying to understand why it doesn't work that well on us.

You can try yourself, if you go to Militaria category and type anything in the search box , the number of items will be much lower than what's actually listed, and right under, you will have a bunch of unrelated items, who will be titled as " More related items who may interest you " ... NO ! very annoying...

Well I've been on epay since Jan 1999. with about 1400 buys and sells.(mostly Under $65.00)  I do not like ebay or any other web business going in and out of my bank account without my approval and control,  also their fees have gotten too high for cheap $ sellers like me. Many items I sell the postage is more than my profit.   For the most part I only sell non militaria items on there anyway.  So after over 20 + years I'm 99% sure I'll be gone and sell on Forums, maybe my wife's Face Book page (if that is possible) and local Flea Mkt dealers.  Richard 


Wanted: WWI ID'ed USMC Green Wool Uniform and ANYTHING documented to my Dad's Iwo Jima outfit: 21st Marines 3rd Div.

Items marked "Marquet, Marquett, or Marquette"
