After giving it due consideration--like about 5 minutes' worth--I've pulled the plug on my eCrater store. The sellthrough on eCrater stinks, but people are making sales on Bonanzle and Etsy. Those appear to be the most viable competitors for eBay at this point.
eBay surely isn't making things easy for sellers. And they're creating a lot of ill will in the process. At the rate they're going, there won't be enough sellers to keep them going before long.
For what it's worth, I've put my entire Bonanzle inventory on a 50 percent markdown on Sunday afternoon only..........if you're interested, stop by the store at www.bonanzle.com/booths/artemistradingco.
