Cenicola-Helvin Enterprises' Free Online Classified Advertising Service Provides Relief to Sellers Disgruntled with Pending Price Increases at eBay
January 20, 2005 - Las Vegas - Cenicola-Helvin Enterprises' 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, has been established with a "keep it simple" philosophy. provides simple registration, simple navigation, simple buying, and simple selling. Not only is 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, would rather create a loyal user-base. With this in mind, offers every user free basic membership, free listings, and no transaction fees!

An excerpt from the January 15th edition of the newsletter poses the question, "Is eBay Price Gauging its Sellers?"

{As you already know, 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 email they sent out with the subject " 2005 Pricing Announcement" shows that in some cases they are raising their "Final Value Fee" (commissions on sales) as much as 80% as of February 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, offers premium memberships with features such as image hosting and featured ad credits.
