Lightbulb Oltiby.com: platform for buyers, eBay in reverse

I know it sounds odd, but it would seem to me to be a low cost solution for those of us who don't know a thing about running all that credit card shopping cart type stuff, and/or can't afford the cart software.
The opposite is called Reverse Online Auctions and is promoted by Oltiby.com. This reverse auction platform dedicated to buyers allow them to post what they want to buy. Competition between sellers make the price go down.

It doesn't undermine sellers as they have free lead when a user is ready to buy and they still have to choice of their selling price.

Default Ebay's increasing rules about links

Ebay works great to drive leads to your site. However, ebay doesn't allow links to external sites in listings. The funny thing is that you can put them in, and usually have no problem but once in a blue moon they will take your listing down.

They don't put no follows in the listings but the listings only stay up for 90 days so the backlinks probably won't do you much benefit.

I have started having everything link to my "ME" page, and then linking to my website after I got a suspension threat.
