I have a lifetime 49.99 membership on ebid which I have had for over a yr sales are slow but I live in the hope that one day people will realise how much of a scam ebay is and start coming over to ebid, I am sure it will go viral at some point until that day we live in hope :)
Using the site can be a little cluttered but since the new update things have improved immensely.
Personally I think the lifetime membership is an investment for the future.
Having traded on ebay for several years with 100% FB I have to say that ebay and their rules for sellers are getting more and more ridiculous by the month.
We as sellers should be free to sell our stock as we see fit and not be dictated by an external company on how we should do this then be given a bonus (which is becoming more and more unobtainable) when we do as were told.
One gripe that really grinds my gears is the fact that a Buy it Now is still classed by ebay as an auction and as such you are not allowed in ebays eyes to then advertise this item anywhere else, if you do and get reported for it they then lock your account and force you to sit a tutorial on how to tow the line before they unlock your account,basically put the D hat on and sit in the corner.
I do not view ebay as an income revenue but more as an advertising portal which when viewed as such helps with swallowing the ebay fees.
If you are starting a business dont expect to make a fortune.

Never had any problems, on simplicity plan £20pm good deal, good coverage,only complaint for not having 5* when abroad if you switch phone on while voicemail is active you get charged abroad rates for not answering calls. I guess all the companies do this still a shock to see the bill at end of month though 8-0
I am a regular seller online orcamarineuk on ebay and have used hermes on a semi regular basis,usually when PO is too expensive for a low value item, I am surprised with some of the comments as I have not as yet had any problems, ok they are not the speediest in the world 5 days seems about the average in my opinion, but the courier is spot on at my end, she has called me if the workshop is unattended and waited 10minutes for me to get back,cant imagine DHell doing that,Talking of dhl I wouldnt use them even if they were free after having sent an item worth £1000 which they then managed to break (engine block go figure) I used the online ordering form to send the package,unbeknown to me when done online the maximum insurance is £200 yet they ask for item value etc but dont give the option to insure for more.
4* for hermes would have been 5 but for the time it takes to deliver,but value for money is superb.
