YardSaleNet.net Free Online Classified Advertising Service Provides Relief to
Sellers Disgruntled with Pending Price Increases at eBay

Cenicola-Helvin Enterprises' YardSaleNet.net Free Online Classified Advertising
Service was created in order to put the simplicity back into buying and selling
secondhand merchandise. Avoiding the complications and inconsistencies of online
auctions, YardSaleNet.net has been established with a "keep it simple" philosophy.
YardSaleNet.net provides simple registration, simple navigation, simple buying and
simple selling. Not only is YardSaleNet.net easy to use, but best of all, it's FREE!
Opposed to the fees of auction sites and outrageous listing fees of other online classified
advertisers, YardSaleNet.net would rather create a loyal user base. With this in mind,
YardSaleNet.net offers every user free basic membership, free listings and no transaction
fees! An excerpt from the Jan. 15 edition of the YardSaleNet.net newsletter poses the
question, "Is eBay Price Gauging its Sellers?"


As you already know, YardSaleNet.net doesn't charge transaction or listing fees for
anything bought or sold through the online classified advertising network. What you may
or may not know is that eBay is again raising the cost of doing business there. The latest
e-mail they sent out with the subject "eBay.com 2005 Pricing Announcement" shows that
in some cases they are raising their "Final Value Fee" (commissions on sales) as much as
80% as of Feb. 18, 2005. Wow, 80%! That sure does put a dent in the seller's pocket
which eventually makes prices for buyers go up as sellers compensate by adding additional
handling and shipping charges. We didn't even mention the other increases in listing fees
that they are imposing.

In addition to Free Basic membership which includes the ability to post unlimited ads with
no listing or transactions fees, YardSaleNet.net offers premium memberships with features
such as image hosting and featured ad credits. There are three levels of Premium Membership
for members starting as little as $13.95 for six months of Level 1 access which includes:

-- Ability to post unlimited classified ads with no listing or transaction fees

-- Image hosting for up to 5 MB of images stored

-- An Image Library to view and edit your stored images

-- 1 Featured Ad Credit

Striving to be the Internet's largest FREE classified advertising network, YardSaleNet.net was
created in order to put the simplicity back into buying and selling secondhand merchandise.
