Choo - Oops! Thanks for bringing me back to reality, I almost forgot - must be getting old. You're right, they all want to stuff their pockets today, after all, tommorow might never come. Real visionaries.
dvchic - You are right, that is a stress producer. It may not be you, or ebay, but could just be a normal fluke of the marketplace. You might want to consider doing some market research to see what is happening in your particular category, which includes many other sellers(otherwise all you see are your own sales). Terapeak is great for this kind of marketing info. They can give you a wealth of current sales info, or trends going back a much as 2 years. Some of the info is free, some is paid, depending on the level of detail you want. Great site.
