Ebay not functioning properly

I get hardly any views for my items these days and therefore hardly any sales.  Earlier in the year I had fewer items listed and a higher rate of sales. 

I know some people might put it down to the cost of living crisis and people cutting back on unnecessary purchases. However, I was wondering if it might be a technical issue with eBay?

    According to the press people have returned to buying in person and I think there has been a downturn generally on online sales . I also suspect that people are generally buying less un necessary items, I certainly am being more cuatious.

    It's worth checking other sales though to see if other sellers are selling the same things, and if so what they are doing with their keywords and postage, to see if you have any changes you cna make to your listings.
