Fees, Policies Driving Seller to Quit

In response to Upcoming eBay Return Policy Change Causes Uproar:

Due to increasing fees when my listings expire, I will no longer be selling on eBay. I used to count on eBay as a source of income.

I mostly sell brand new nursing scrubs. The competition is enormous. I sell brand names at the lowest prices of anyone on eBay. Problem is, with insertion fees, final value fees, fees on shipping and PayPal fees, I no longer make a profit. eBay, on the other hand, is doing great.

I lose money on shipping also, and cannot afford to add confirmation to an item that sells for $5.99 to $9.99. If I ask any more for the items, they do not sell at all. With the new seller rules to be a Top-rated Seller, I will also lose those benefits as I cannot conform to the new policies.

What a shame. I am sure there are a lot of other sellers in the same boat I am in. I have a basement full of brand new clothing that I may as well just donate to charity.
