Sellers who list stuff with only a BUY IT NOW and a auction that are just a couple bucks apart and the prices are what the item went for when demand was the highest. then the auction just sits and sits and sits some more for months it gets relisted again and again. But the seller never changes the amounts.
I think Ebay should have some line about if your item doesnt sell then after so many tries it needs to be removed or lowered in price or remove the BIN? I know the logistics would make it impossible.

I don't like it when an auction has shipping listed as "free", which is what the app on my phone shows me, and then in the item description is where the seller lists out the potential shipping costs. I need to do a better job keeping an eye on that.

I only hate ebay because scalpers base their scalping price from other ebay sellers.

I just tried selling an item and it says I need to add in a payment method for the buyer protection policy. The policy is complete bullshit and offers nothing but headache for the sellers.

I don't get the beef with "scalpers." I would argue that a scalper can not exist in a transaction that no party is required to take part in.
If you think someone's prices are too high, don't buy their item. The price will either drop or someone else will like the price and buy it.
Look bros, let's stop the crying and recognize people can ask whatever they want for the things they own. Other dudes can pay whatever they want for the things they are buying. No one is pulling a fast one on anybody. Let's stop pretending we are entitled to the things we want at the prices we want them.
I scalp the crap out of in demand items when I can. I also try to spread some of the love around and help out fellow collectors, but all this whining about scalpers makes me want to nip that in the bud.

iPhones and eBay apps. I'm cheap (here we go!!) and have an old BB Storm so my eBay app. is not that advanced but we have a hoarder/scalper douche bag who uses his iPhone to scan the UPCs on any new items he sees and gets instant listings so he can see if it's worth his time to grab and item.
His cover has been fully blown so he doesn't frequent when most of us are out, he's mainly a pallet diver or chats up people in the back so he knows when everything gets put out (funny to see new TF Prime, 6" & 4" Avengers figures go out this morning at WM all missing Hulk, Hawkeye, Airachnid and Black Widows! I asked the stocker if Josh struck again and he gave me a grim nod, pestered the hell out them the night before I guess).
On the scalper issue, most of us have spent the better part of lives working and tending to family, we do this for fun and to see people benefit because they can schlep into WM at 0559 every day and raid the pallets while most of us can only get out when we can is a little infuriating. Your probably making money hand over fist so thank the system you take advantage of every day. Enjoy it and leave it at that. You want to profit off your fellow collectors so be it, just don't expect to be entitled to warm welcomes. Can't have it both ways.

When the seller lists an item for some exorbitant amount, but leaves the original price sticker on it showing what THEY paid.

I hate it when I bid, set my Max amount because Im busy with work and paying bills for the rest of the week and dont have time to sit infront on my computer staring at an ebay screen and some shill bidding jerk runs the bid up, or over bids, becomicing the high bidder, than retracts the bid.
