What's wrong with ebay ?

There was someone who owned a wargame-only auction site that spent a lot of time here proclaiming the death of eBay. As far as I know, it's long gone (I don't remember the name).

Although everybody seems to hate eBay, the number of possible buyers there seems to outweight any other negatives.

I second bartertown.com It is broken into various categories as well.

craigslist is good too. You can use a universal search engine to search across all listings in all states: craigslist.extads.com

Here is a 40K army for sale: link

Bad news is that the search engine returns expired ads too :-(

There may be better search engines out there too. Of course, not everyone wants to ship.

I don't care for Ebay like I used to. As a seller, you have very few rights and much less than the buyer. The fees are atrocious considering what they do. Yes, I do know they have a staff but my belief is that the staff count is bloated there and they do very little that helps me as a buyer or a seller.

The other bad thing is that they managed to 'win' and we lost other auction sites. Doesn't Amazon have an auction site too?

Don't get me started about the problems I have had with Paypal and the horror stories others have had with them.
