Is it just me or are the amount of stuff getting sold on the marketplace slowing down.

Waaaay down. I have struck out on my last four attempts. Even on eBay.

I just had to verify my email for the 2nd time in a month – it might be something to do with TMP

Not sold much recently.

I have an ebay store, overall way down. It does good on occasion but its not too surprising with the amount of people out of work.

I'm going to drop the price on a few things next week but, yes, I think things are down overall. With the amount of people out of work and uncertain financial times, I am not surprised by reduced sales.

I'll be danged. I'd not noticed.

My $.02 USD,

I agree with 'Stosstruppen', a lot of people not working. Let us hope the current situation(s) get(s) better Real, Real Soon!

Ebayis almost impossible to search with all of the stores showing full priced items. Coupled with the crazy high shipping they are not good value for money

I sell only at conventions, so…

I just helped a friend liquidate his collection of unpainted Starship Troopers figures for insanely high prices on eBay. Usually triple what they cost 15 years ago. Other stuff I can't give away. So I guess it is totally hit or miss.

And to confirm Tod's comment, the full price stores are killing eBay IMHO.
