Other than that I still like Ebay a lot.
If you sold on eBay you'd understand why they do that. eBay takes its (hefty) fees off the sales price, but not off the shipping/handling fees.
People who sell low priced items have little choice but to structure their prices that way to avoid seeing their margins evaporate.
