Ebay’s design is a mess

What happened to eBay? The site that was meant to help every man and his dog buy and sell stuff over the Internet has morphed into a complicated and confusing monster. Case in point: try finding items you haven’t left feedback for more than 31 days after the transaction. Or paying eBay fees with a one-off payment rather than a permanent credit card order. Clearly with the latter they’re trying to convince people to hand over their CC details in perpetuity. Is that allowed? How can they get away with wilfully obscuring other payment methods?

EBay is based in the EU. Will the Commission now step in and fight for consumer rights?
