Just wanted to stop in and say hello. Unilt the last week or so I didn’t know one of the key people in the Zecco project (i.e. you) and like to minimally introduce myself to people in my working circle.
This article is interesting. I think that Ebay is loosing money because they’ve raised their listing and final value prices to a point that it’s not as viable to sell there anymore especially on low end items (and people are looking for alternative venues). On the upside, problematic buyers/sellers are typically handled fairly between paypal and/or ebay… however, I don’t think that can save them from a softer market if they don’t get smart. IMO they need to cater to people who are looking for savings, and that would mean lowering the costs for the user (which, of course cuts into the profit margin — but if you do it right you can actually increase income). Thanks for a good read.
