Haha, yeah. But, really, what we are is the conduit for their money supply. The money ultimately comes from the buyers and that's who they cater to.
You are right in a very big way! It IS the buyer who ultimately pay's ebay through the conduit of the seller.
One nice thing about being the "conduit" is that we do have, as Donna and many other's have encouraged, the ability to choose a different utility provider (venue) ie. ecrater, vstore, personal website...
If ebay is not attractive enough to the conduit, then where will the money-stream flow? It will keep flowing....
I Love when someone (Rick) throws something out on the table to chew on! I'm learning lot's folks!
