Now you can post a nice looking Ebay ad into your posts. Just post the Ebay item number (found on the listing's page, not in the url) into the ebay BBcode. For example:

Code: Select all

[ebay]200368593268[/ebay]
Yields the something like following:

Use this new BBcode feature to give better impact to your ads! IF you are promoting an Ebay auction here, there really is no reason not to use this feature! It will work much better than a boring old url link!!!

One minor deal with the Ebay button. It doesn't show that the item is available as Buy It Now........ so if you're selling with a Buy It Now of say $249, it looks as if $249 is the starting bid and potential buyers just hit the back button because they think your starting bid is too high. I think it's an ok tool but shouldn't be mandatory. I really don't see the problem with just posting a link. Just my opinion.

Hey Guys, I've linked your site for years of course on my sounddoctorin site. I've been a long time ebay seller with 550 some positives til someone left a neg without even talking to me about a 25.00 ups he then claimed didn't work though i had sold it 'as is' because i didn't have batteries. I found that since I haven't done a lot the past year that this trashed my ebay business...NOT that I was happy paying 10% plus 3 for paypal anyway there...

So.. Todd Green had tipped me about reverb.com and it's actually a nicer layer..less clutter... less spammy junk I don't want to see and REAL SUPPORT! (I can't even get the ebay people to pull the neg though the immature user himself wanted it pulled after I told him how ridiculous his action was and that I'd have just given him the money back if he'd talked to me)...


Anyway Here's the deal. Paul Haugen and I are listing a lot of vintage gear on there. Synths, combo organs and..we actually have more stuff to list than I find in the reasonable price category on ebay for sure at least. eg. They have a crumar composer overseas for 1890 now or something outrageous. I'll be listing one for 900 tech certified.

Reverb looks like a class act with a real store front in chicago and THEY CHARGE 3.5% and you can select your payment methods. :-) So my belief is..if we can get word around that there is a better act in town, ebay will gradually become the second place to look for vintage synth gear... and people will save a lot of money and headache. And we have the gear to simply gradually alter that perception. Ebay has mostly junk on there right now in the vintage market in terms of bang for buck and not much of it.
