Ebay has initiated strict photo rules, recently. As of July 1st, all pictures must be at least 500 pixels (on the longest side) and the first picture in a listing cannot be a stock photo. If a listing does not meet these requirements, it will not be able to be listed or re-listed. With this in mind, I expect the number of listings to continue to decline.
Number of listings on Atomic Avenue: 1,528,595 (+0.51%; +2.46%)
Number of those that are in the Cyberspace Comics Store on Atomic Avenue: 56,728 (-0.01%; +21.35%)
Cyberspace Comics “market share” of comic listings on AtomicAvenue: 3.71112% (-0.52%; +18.43%)
Cyberspace Comics estimated “market share” of AtomicAvenue orders: 5.98% (-14.57%; +42.04%)
Number of members on ComicCollectorLive: 92,208 (+0.33%; +6.38%)
