Ebay boycotts

Ebay, the online auction sites, has been making a lot of changes that seem to be angering their longtime sellers.

One of the changes led to higher fees on Ebay, and a second set of changes, going in to effect next month, will take away the ability for Ebay sellers to leave feedback on a transaction. Their goal? They want buyers to rate transactions without fear of sellers leaving negative feedback.

Sellers already went through a boycott last month, and will apparently be doing another one on May 1st. This doesn't really affect buyers as much as it affects the battle between Ebay and sellers.

If there was any alternative to Ebay out there, this would really be that company's chance.
