What are Ebay's positives for collector and seller?

One thing I like is doing .99 cent auctions for low end stuff.

Think it builds loyalty and brings more visitors to my store.

Never fails that something I feel will be lucky to sell at .99 will go for $8 or more.

I look at it as a little bit of cash flow for supplies and overhead.

    For me as seller fantastic sales portal selling costs based on pct sales unlike fixed cost hole of shows. A basic store only $27.95 a month. Able achieve keystone markup on many cheap items. Good retail. I have bought some good deals there at giveaway prices get good retail later on about 50 pct markup or more. eBay worlds largest coin show. I rofl at its detractors.

    Some really good purchases on bay but like setting up at shows go to wholesaler guys and plus can get bullion coins cheaper. My best rips however have been from non bay online auc houses (bidders asleep, ran out of money towards end, or ignorant).
