    Default anyone planning to switch to yahoo auctions to list?

    Changes to Yahoo! Auctions
    http://auctions.yahoo.com/phtml/auc/...uncements.html

    Yahoo! Auctions has changed its pricing to create a model that is free for all consumers listing items on our Auctions platform. We have eliminated all fees associated with Auctions listings, including listing fees and final value fees.

    Many users have been asking for this type of structure, and we are happy to provide it as a way to strengthen our partnership with the seller community and clearly demonstrate our commitment to our sellers' success. The new pricing model will go into effect Monday, June 6, 2005.

    This move to free listings was designed with the consumer in mind, as we are continually looking to offer the most relevant and useful products and services to our users. Over the years, we've achieved our objective of improving the quality of the site, making it easier for buyer and sellers to connect. This most recent move will make auctions more cost effective for both large and small sellers who wish to list items on Yahoo!, ultimately improving their margins

    If I could actually sell things I'd switch. Seems like ebay is just a glut.

    Sounds like a great idea to me. I may try it to see how they compare to ebay.

    I had no idea that they did this. I'm going to have to check it out. I was going to list some things on Ebay this weekend, but maybe I'll use Yahoo instead.

    Well I just listed on Yahoo after you were kind enough to let us know that it was free!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Wish there was some way to transfer my ratings to Yahoo. I sold on ebay a long time ago and haven't done much that past few years.

    Hate starting out without feedback ratings but maybe it'll work out.

    Anyway, I'm breezynosacek on both Ebay and Yahoo and I posted some cross stitch patterns just now so I will see how I do.

    I hadn't heard about this. I've sold a few things on Yahoo yrs ago,but not recently. I just think ebay gets more traffic. Maybe if Yahoo takes off,ebay will lower their fees.
    I have over 860 feedbacks and would hate to start over with 0.....

    I reckon though that the money I save by not posting on ebay might make up for it.

    Also, where Ebay had a problem with linking to your homepage, Yahoo doesn't have that stipulation. So, what I am getting ready to do is to get a site set up and link all my auctions back to my home page and vice versa.

    This will be better for me in the long run. The reason Ebay came up with stores is because of the no link policy. Ebay might just lose a lot of their stores because of this.
