Do you Sell Books on Half.com and Have an eBay Account?

December 14th, 2009 by Skip McGrath

One of my readers pointed out a very interesting article to me today on the Book Think Blog. It seems that Half.com, owned by eBay, will cancel your half.com listings and suspend both your half.com and your eBay account if you violate their book description guideline.  Worse yet, there are secret pitfalls that anyone can accidently fall into even if you are giving accurate descriptions.

If you sell books on half.com and have an eBay account then you really need to read this article:

Yet another reason to move more business over to Amazon, especially books. Thanks for the heads’ up.

I have spent the morning dealing with ebay representatives telling me that half.com is NOT owned by ebay. I sold some books with half.com after I signed into my ebay account. I never signed into a separate account. But now, I am listed as a new ebay seller even though I have sold several items through half.com. This means that Paypal also owned by ebay holds my money for 21 days. This, I believe, is the real reason why ebay refuses to remove my “new seller” satus–so that Paypal can hold onto my funds and get interest. With thousands of “new sellers,” ebay/paypal must make a lot of money holding back the payments for 21 days.
