The listing structure is not the only thing that has changed at ebay. Sellers can no longer leave negative or neutral feedback. The way around this is to click positive response and then let them have it in the comment area. This works great for me. Also, Meg Whitman who had run ebay for the last ten years retired in March of '08. Also Pierre Omidyar- ebay founder and ceo has decided that buyers must have a near perfect ranking to bid, this is probably whats affecting your business. They have effectively cut the number of buyers who can qualify in half. Contact ebay and give them a piece of your mind.

Bid on a ironman 4000 gravity table yesterday. 7gpapa1 contacted me today and said to pick it up I must come to the state of PA, I live in Texas, this is not possible for me to pick it up.. When I ORD

You need to contact the seller and ask him, politely, to cancel the sale. You can get his info from eBay, or his phone number is listed in the ad. If he agrees to do so, he must start the process in the eBay Resolution Center. Ebay will then send you an email asking if you indeed want to cancel the sale. Answer this immediately. this will refund the seller his fees, which eBay had already added to his bill. This will end the transaction. Should Ebay still allow you to leave feedback, you need to leave Positive comments for the seller for allowing the cancellation.
Remember, it's always a good idea to read the listing carefully before bidding.

How to successful selling things on Ebay?

Firstly, spend some time researching similar products on eBay and follow their bidding process. This easy step will ensure that you are able to understand and gauge interest in your product, and help you to determine a fair - and profitable - price. In addition, you can always find ways to improve the way you market your product by finding small flaws in your competition.
The more time you spend perusing the site the more prepared you will be to start selling on eBay.

Another suggestion to take into consideration is to learn all about shipping. As the seller, you have control. Some methods are clearly better than others, so you need to find the best one - taking cost and reliability into account. While shipping is not the most integral part to selling on eBay, a little bit of time spent learning about it will take you a long way.

Once your strategy for selling on eBay is in place, it is time to focus on appealing to the most potential customers - and turning them into buyers. In ecommerce, a picture really is worth a thousand words. Consumers truly do like to see things before they click the "buy" button. In order to be a successful seller, make sure you can obtain the most professional photographs of your product.

Do I need a web site to advertise?? Can I advertise items from companies such as "coleman" addias etc??

Hi there!
You don't necessarily need a website since it'll cost you to maintain one but you can register with eBay and create a seller account and you will just pay for seller fees. And if you are going to sell branded items, please check their policy with copy right or you may end up getting suspended for violating policies.
I hope this helps a bit. Have a great day!

I bid on a truck in dec. Fell off roof cleaning gutters, Got hurt,broke some ribs...etc Anyways well I was in hospital my landlady tryed to help me with the truck I bid on, she called brooklynautosales the...

Okay if I understand you correctly you are no longer buying the truck you are just covering their seller fees charged by Ebay since you backed out of the deal, right?
Yes Ebay charges seller a closing fee upon closing a sale you never completed the sale so the buyer can file a NON PAYING BIDDER claim which reimburse the buyer of the fees Ebay charged.
The buyer could also do a second chance offer to the second highest bidder. Trust me the seller has options one of them is not to charge a winning bidder closing fees for an incomplete sale.
