    I shifted nearly £10k of gold via the forum in one day earlier in the year, when priced right with great seller reputation to guarantee the good, not too shabby
    To do the same £10k with silver, i very much doubt it
    In my retirement, selling 5oz on eBay a day and a trip to the Post Office to stretch my legs won't be too much of a trouble

    I have been around on it since the very early 2000s - you will remember the days - when you could put almost anything on there and it would have many many watchers and you could count on many bids via auction often smashing what would be a fair price - it changed the game for second hand goods.
    Fast forward nearly 20 years, where 90% used to be auctions 90% is now Buy it now listings, where it used to be cool quirky used items is now (mostly) brand new.
    The brand and business was built on small time private sellers selling used interesting things, but ebay are now trying to shift towards huge volume sellers of new products - they proudly display on the main page sometimes "80% of items on ebay are brand new!"
    I dont believe ebay can begin to compete with amazon for new products - Their search engine is now awful, the cassini bot seemed to harm everyone with less views.
    You now have a problem where for each category you have Chinese sellers selling items at prices that cannot be competed with, with UK addresses, however order one of these items and often it will take 12 days to arrive, UK warehouse adress but still sent from china. This annoys buyers and so many have left. why wait 12 days when you can have it the next day from amazon.
    Do you remember when you could put a item on ebay with a 99p start price and it would find its natural price every time? try that now and theres a good chance it will sell for a fraction of its value. Many buyers have left ebay - probably because if they want a cheap new item then amazon is far more user friendly. Prime delivery for many too.
    So we have a issue where buyers are fed up and leaving, sellers are fed up trying to jump through ebays constant changing hoops and slowing sales (30 day forced returns forced on business sellers (thanks ebay)- how long before its 60 days? maybe you would like me to offer free returns next as well!) the popularity of facebook selling groups seems to be growing alot too, many would rather save the hassle of ebay now.
    Unless there is major change in how they run things, and ebay stops trying to compete with amazon - I just feel that ebays days are numbered as the way we currently know it, and eventually it will just wilt away to nothing - or be unrecognizable with only very large business sellers using it as an outlet..

    @Paul, so sorry to hear😥...you could always try doing what we do out here...just drive out to the middle of the country and let her loose out the car. The trick here is to drive away as fast as possible so she can’t try and get back into the car. If you make it this far, you may also risk the likelihood that she would find her way back home...I have read some incredible stories where they eventually find their way back, sometimes after a mere couple of years. But the risk in your case may out weigh the gain. 🤗

    Have you considered a trade for silver?  Buyer collects and assumes all future responsibility?
