New (Or Newer) Auction Sites.

Q: What's wrong with 'eBay'? I like it there myself. I get a lot of bids, and a lot of business from 'eBay'. I don't expect anything for free, they have to make money too. I will check out 'Just Beads' though. I had never heard of these people until today on here. I am very comfortable at eBay with a few exceptions to some policies, but that goes with the territory...

A: Let me know if you end up at 'AuctionAddict' or "Bid-whateveritwas". I went to both and visited. 'AuctionAddict' loaded faster on my older computer and seemed a bit more lively, though they don't (yet) have a "beads" category. The only drawback to them is that the 'Thaigems' folks are there already, and they take up SO much space, and their listings are SO boring to wade through. Wherever you go, on one of the free listing sites, I am going also, and lets see if we can build it up. You cannot even begin to believe what I paid in fees on 'Amazon', and other sites last year. It is an astronomical amount, and I am willing to do what it takes to cut down this amount. I only listed a few times on 'Yahoo', but I did okay there, mostly because I have a good mailing list of people who come to visit my auctions. As do you. So, when you pick your alternative site, let me know because I am looking around also, and I appreciate that you are several steps ahead of me in this area. I didn't like 'BidBay' because every time you went to another page, not only did you have to view the annoying ads at top and bottom of each page, but you also get a pop-up ad which greatly increased download time. I don't want my customers to have to endure all that!!! Another complaint about 'Yahoo' - they cancelled 5 of my auctions for no apparent reason!!! They said I violated their rules, but I don't have a clue what I did wrong. I wrote them about it, and never got a response. Of course I'm not using them any more anyway, but it did irritate me, as I try to comply with all the rules & regs of auction sites.... sigh...
