I'm convinced ebay is used as a front for other "transactions"

this isn't the first example I've noticed, just the most recent because I need to replace the hose on my folks' trailer.  NO ONE is spending a grand on a stupid propane hose.  note that he's sold 2 or "them" so far.  :slap:

They do this to save the listing when they are out of inventory another words to listing does not go away for the 5 days or waiting for other parts or inventory to come in for resale is common it's done all the time

so it's a way to skimp out on ebay fees?  I'm ok with that. :D  

 

I'm soooo OK with that.  "FEEbay".  Once upon a time when it was an "auction" site it was awesome, but now they poke you for everything.

 

There's a lot of junk and "big box" items you can get anywhere.  

 

Don't know if it's a "front", but it wouldn't surprise me.

soooo, to save time by changing prices instead of writing up a new listing?   that's less awesome but I'll allow it. :D  

Yes much faster to revise a listing meant to lose it and have to create a new one especially if you are trying to manage 250 listings
