Holy cow! That is just absolutely ridiculous... where else are homeschoolers on a limited budget supposed to purchase our materials and what difference does it make whether or not we are teachers?!?

That's total BS but it doesn't surprise me.

That's going to hurt me for sure. 50-75% of my stuff came from Ebay. Oh well, I guess if they don't want our business, we can go somewhere else!!! Wow!

Ebay put that in place a couple of months ago. I don't believe from other things I read that they are targeting home schoolers though. 'Aparantly' it was to stop school kids buying books with answer keys and cheating

I just bought a bunch of books on eBay, and in the title it said homeschoolers, so I don't believe it.

Well, that is truly sucky about EBay! But we don't use them anyway, we love Amazon!!! My hubby is working on his degree from home and he finds the best deals on Amazon.com. He ordered a book from a private seller the other day through them and it was here in two days. Take your business to Amazon lol....maybe after Ebay loses a substantial amount of customers they will reconsider their policy.

I agree about Amazon, you can get some really good books for cheap there! I get most of my Pagan and Wiccan books from there.
