Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

eBay users have long complained of sellers who list items for low prices but then surprise buyers with inflated shipping & handling (S&H) charges. So eBay North America President Bill Cobb got a positive response during his keynote address at the eBay Live conference when he said the auction site would begin clamping down on these policy violators.Cobb said at the time that a recent study had revealed that the number one reason buyers don’t complete a transaction is because of the “nasty little surprise” of excessive shipping charges, and he said such offenders compete unfairly, “game” the search results, and erode buyer trust.How does eBay determine when a seller is charging a fair S&H fee to buyers? That question came up last week on industry discussion boards as some sellers complained they were victims of over-reaching by eBay Trust & Safety’s department who took down their listings for violating policy.
