I posted my first items to sell on Ebay last night and I have to say I’m a little disappointed. I have been buying things off Ebay for a while now but I never sold a product and now I know why people bitch so much about them.

The buying process on Ebay seems really easy so I thought that the selling process would be just easy. Not so. Once of the first things that you have to navigate through is the category listings which are an infinite and gargantuan cluster fuck. Who ever dreamed that you can list a simple alarm clock under so many different categories. You would think it would be a heads up to Ebay that their process was a little screwed up when other software firms make a living from making a software product to make selling things on Ebay easier……

I’m always a great proponent of Ebay from the standpoint of the amount of auctions that they deal with and the size of their community but I think they are lacking in the user interface category and I can see why people turn to other ways to sell stuff when they come across the process that Ebay has in place.
