What I fail to understand is everyone's sudden fear of buyers. In the 11 years I've been selling, and probably somewhere between 5000-6000 transactions, I have never once had a "bad buyer". Oh sure, I get the occasional deadbeat, but I go through the process and get my funds back.
If you're worried about the one sided feedback, I fairly sure eBay is going to be on top of "bad buyer complaints", knocking out these cheeseballs when reported. Why do I think this? Honestly, I don't know! I'm just being hopeful that even with the higher fees, things will pretty much run as they always have and I'll have the same types of buyers I've always had. My items don't tend to attract the creeps and assholes, like the type of seller moving generic ink cartridges or cell phone accessory crap. The stuff I'm selling is either the only one listed, or one of a few. This is the only part of this change I have some hope about. All the rest, sucks.
