So I thought I'd also bring you a Pros vs. Cons list of the eBay world.
Beyond HUGE customer base
I'm a Power Seller among other benefits, so I get a decreased or free list fee, and they reduce their percentage on my sales. I get my listings put up immediately, and they show up better in searches.
I get to customize my store and keep better records.
Store is next to nothing to have.
People on eBay are there to buy, not just to hang out.
You will never get the price for your jewelry that you deserve.
eBay policies are not geared to protect the sellers, only the buyers;
1. Can't leave negative or neutral feedback for buyers.
2. Buyers can claim your description wasn't accurate and not only get a full refund, but you can get into trouble.
Even with a discount on listings, I generally pay up to $100 a week to list.
They own you, you don't have access to your customer's emails, but they can access yours if you like.
There are a lot of people on eBay, (as with other sites), that want to have a problem. Sellers, you know
what I'm saying! These people would rather leave a neg. on your feedback then get a full refund? Go figure:(
Okay, so that's the short list. Call me an eBay sucker if you like, I probably would too!! LOL
Guess it's like the Etsy forums, you can try to leave, but you can never really get out!!!

P.S. All jewelry on my ebay shop is priced the same as my regular shop. I don't add altered art jewelry there at all. Quality and uniqueness will stay the same:)
