I had an account since 1999 and a second account since 2001, I closed the older one earlier this year due to the managed payments system, and the terrible seller hub, which did not suit my needs, it was a selling account only. My second account was mainly buying but a bit of selling occasionally, so I left that one open just for buying.
Anyway, I have noticed over the past 5-7 years ebay has got steadily worse both for buying and selling, and with every update they make, things get worse. Creating a listing used to be much quicker, but over the past 5 years it just gets more and more tedious with each update.
In particular search throws up way to many irrelevant results, the dumbing down of the search filters, the poxy ads, and in general it now becomes such a chore trying to find stuff on ebay I end up rage quitting
So yeah, fuck off ebay.
