Are any of you going to try to sell yours on ebay? And before someone says "you can't sell them on ebay", I will say that is not necessarily the case I saw some completed auctions for them a few days ago. I'm sure they would take down a 30 day listing eventually but they don't come down automatically. One guy had 10 sets and sold about 7 in one day...just curious if anyone is going this route.

Nope. If I end up selling mine, I'd do it elsewhere and avoid the scam artists that comprise PayPal.

Yes you do give up about 15% of sales with ebay/paypal combo. But not sure where else you would sell these. With CL, doesn't seem like people would be searching for them on there. But if the company goes out of business (likely), they may become collectors items of sorts so who knows. i should have bought more.

I don't refer to the fees involved. I refer to PayPal not being a bank and therefore lacking certain regulations and insurance, and their tendency to freeze accounts and steal funds for the fun of it. I trust them as far as I can throw them. Anyway, there are these things called "friends" and "colleagues". You don't need the internet to buy and sell stuff.

Collector's items? There are so many clones of these things. It's not like Bucky Balls are any higher in quality, judging by the low QC on the ones that I received.

Yeah and the same with Beanie Babies...dumb stuffed animals that sold for thousands of dollars just because people wanted them. I'm not saying these will be that much in demand but could go up in value a bit if they stop making them. It makes no logical sense but still it could be the case.

Ebay removed my auctions after less than 24 hours. They were regular 7 day auctions. I had mad interest in them too, multiple watchers and a few emails asking if I would sell them outright. Ebay is Ridiculous.

I agree with you, I have been selling on Ebay for 8 years and I couldn't tell you the # of times (over 3 selling accounts) that I have had PayPal put a hold on my funds because buyers file false claims and try to steal items (and money)! Thankfully I now live in a small town where I know the Post Office workers, so at least the cases where USPS does not scan the delivery confirmation upon delivery typically get resolved, but it is a pain in the butt.

Almost immediately the negative posts began... they charged my card without shipping......

It is ILLEGAL in many states to charge a consumer for an order prior to shipping it. That is why people were complaining about that.

As for the not shipping right away, that is just stupid.

You should have made them fixed price listings and priced them to move. You should have known there was no way ebay was going to let them sit up there for 7 days.
