    Don't you think it's a foolish policy though? As I said, I am thinking I am not alone. One of your earlier posts said you would be interested to know!

    Oh, I agree - it would be a useful change. What do you sell?

    I have several thousand low value postcards. I don't want to spend a lot of time listing if they are unlikely to sell!

    since you have several thousand of them, you might do well on ebid. Some of the postcard and stamp sellers etc., seem to be satisfied with the sales they are getting. That said, it is slower here. ebid doesn’t have the traffic of that other well known site. A person never knows.

    The decision to make is whether to to pay the lifetime seller fee and start listing. What do you think?

    Yes, I have had around 18000 sales on Ebid that I could not have done on Ebay because it would be too expensive to sell there. However, my postcards have been a little slower than stamps.

    Look at the postcard sellers - we all have substantial feedback.

    I think what's meant here is the ability to search for CLOSED items or "Completed Listings" as the other auction has it. The original code in 1998/99 did have that, it was called CLOSED ITEMS when the script was based heavilly on the everyauction perl open source. At the time the owner and all of us were coding our own online auctions, I put mine to rest after 4/5 years but others had more courage and persistance and ebid was one of them. There are three or four massive problems (code wise and marketing wise) that ebid need to change for it to finally put an end to the other amaerican auction's dominance in the UK at least anyway. I used ebid years ago but switched to the other company, now after almost 20 years, I am back giving it another chance and to be honest as one of the first people to sign up (innitially just to help the owner test it), I'd like to see it get there after all those years. However, it needs quite few modern touches.
