People have always paid for, worked for or tried to steal information and they always will. Information is as valuable as Gold or Silver and it is much more portable.
Let me please go on record with the view that this ban on telephone numbers and address information is ridiculous protectionism. If this policy actually goes into effect, I think it will irrevocably harm eBays standing with brick and mortar business sellers.
I just feel very uncertain about the ripples and effects such a plethora of change can do to an organization. But in the midst of all the change, they did not even bother to address the most needed change…….CUSTOMER SERVICE!
The crux of the situation is communications at eBay, how they want to inspire the customers of eBay, the sellers, to provide excellent customer service and communications. And why it is difficult for the customer/sellers of eBay to take this request seriously when eBay itself can not seem to provide even basic communications to its customers.
This years eBay Live and all future plans for same, may just fade away… just as it should.
Thanks Jay for the very nice plug… And thanks to Janelle and her merry band of Rocks Stars for providing 99% of the excitement on the floor at eBay live… What a positive group of people!
Take advantage of all the promotions eBay is flooding the market with… Coupons, partnerships with MSN search and other offers… Save over 30% on some purchases… Will these incentives help sellers bottom lines?
eBay is transitioning from eBay 1.0 to eBay 2.0, this transition will not be without pain. We are in a period of puberty for eBay…
One of the events of the day yesterday in the PESA Pavilion was a round table session with Brian Burke of Feedback Fame at eBay.
I think eBay people are all looking for other alternatives to only selling on eBay. If you are one of those people, this information will interest you!
eBay Live 2008 is underway… This sign was prominently displayed in the center of the solutions floor… eBay Live… Creating Good? The good was found between the lines for those who looked, since the lines were short, looking was easier than ever. The turnout here has been less than expected and less than predicted by […]
ConsignmentPal has not only become the best place to list your consignment or Trading Assistant business (even better than the Trading Assistant Directory in my opinion) but is now a great place to find real honest to goodness solutions providers, consultants, designers, web developers, and eBay gurus like Skip McGrath
What is a well crafted press release and how does a entrepreneur or small business owner create one?
eBay’s DevCon conference gets less of the hoopla and press when compared to eBay Live. I suppose this is because developers are fairly introverted people who would rather have the attention lavished on thier software creations.
If you want to truly understand something, try to change it. Kurt Lewin Oh but the changes we have seen this year at eBay… On the eve of this, possibly the last ever eBay live, what do you expect to hear from the organizers of the yearly eBay big shindig? Will stores listings find their […]
For the first time, eBay will feature third-party applications within Selling Manager, a tool merchants use to manage their eBay listings, the company plans to announce Monday at its annual eBay Developers Conference in Chicago
Make a list of must see vendors and then make sub lists of questions you want to ask these vendors. Bring your questions list with you. In the rush of the crowd and the flow of the convention traffic, sometimes it is difficult to remember who you wanted to see and what you wanted to learn. Crib notes are no problem here.
Chrysler has folowed GM’s lead with a sweet deal for its dealers to sell used vehicles on eBay for cheap…
I wonder how many independent dealers will remain on eBay with this kind of competition?
While doing my Guest Host spot do a recent eBay & Beyond Basics to Business live Internet talk radio show, I had extolled the virtues of using mediums like You Tube and Flickr video to promote businesses, products and services. This is an example of just how it can be done and the reason to do it…
To me, eBay Live should always be, first and foremost, a place to get business done and to learn about the business of selling and buying on eBay.
The point to all of this is that you must research and find sources of supply to run a successful online business. Starting out on eBay or any other venue without a solid plan for sourcing will surely lead to an unsuccessful business plan. Your garage does not hold enough treasures to make your business grow.

Vuurve is the name of this new concept and they claim to have a solution for people who really want the items they buy on eBay – FAST.
Feedback means so much to sellers on eBay… In fact, it can mean the difference between being in business one day, and being out of business the next… Unfortunately for the sellers of eBay, the same feedback situation is not so true for buyers who abuse the system. Yes, there are buyers who abuse the […]
