Many former eBay sellers have chosen this day to pull a massive prank on eBay. They’re moving or have moved all their listings elsewhere. You can read the details on the Facebook Page for April Fool’s Day Off From Corporate Greed. Those with too few listings to export them automatically have either just let their listings […]
I got a bit frustrated when looking around for other places to sell my jewelry and mystical items. Most places were fairly international, but even though Google is in Israel, Google Checkout doesn’t have Israel yet, so I was shut out. So I built my own auction site: Money’s Mama Auctions.
