The Daily Mail are on their high horse about eBay sellers making a profit. When half their readership must be making a few quid here and there on eBay, their vitriolic piece slamming sellers as “a cynical new breed of internet profiteers… with rip-off prices” seems frankly a little bit like jealousy.
This is not bread being taken from the mouths of starving children: it’s overpriced handbags made by overhyped designers, concert tickets for spoiled-brat rockstars who’ll be over next week, silly fads created by marketers to dupe buyers who have more money than sense. And if eBay buyers themselves want to push auctions up to silly prices, no seller is holding a gun to their head. Good luck to them, I say!
