To eBay or not to eBay?

EBay, even independent of its subsidiary Half.com, has long been a leader in the online book business. Although, many traditional booksellers scoff at this market (mostly out of a vacuous hubris or an antiquated ideal), it remains a preferred venue for some sellers. The magnanimous volume of consumers browsing the site's contents makes it an appealing outlet for any merchant. However, with a continued slow down in book sales, along with new fee structures, and auction alternatives many sellers find themselves turning away from eBay and as a recent article notes, booksellers are not the only ones reevaluating their options.
