Okay, I thought I'd be the last to start a feebay rant. With all the TFL-North stuff going on around here, not to mention making the big push to complete some of my own collections, I've been visiting the site of eeeeevil more often. Did anyone else notice that they slashed the completed auctions back to 15 days instead of 30? When did that happen? Or did I just not notice that it was always only two weeks? Did they buy Terapeak, so they could muscle anyone who wants to see more than one of a given collectible into paying $20 a month?

I hadn't noticed. There are usually enough recent transformers sales that I hadn't paid attention to ending dates.

But its ebays motto, pay more for less service.

It used to show 30 days on the completed listings. As far as when the change happened, I have no idea.

For at least a few months I think. I have done some research to sell off old figures and to sell some of the gfs stuff.

It's been a while. :(

So remember what I said about feebay being in cahoots with Terapeak for completed listings?

Unbelievable.

It looks like they (Terapeak) are trying to sell you (the seller) packaged plans in order to have in depth access to the categories completed listings history. That and provide helpful tips, strategies, exc...to make you a more profitable seller. :roll: I had no idea this subsidiary company even existed.

The problem is not Terapeak trying to sell you packaged plans, but that feebay is forcing it, by reducing their completed listings to only 15 days, so if you want so much as a month, you have to buy a terapeak plan.
