dr-computer-biz aka Patrick McCormack has been named eBay.ie Seller of the Year 2007. He was presented with the award by John McElligott, eBay.ie MD, at the Irish Internet Association’s 2007 National Congress. The top prize is â‚¬5,000 paid into his PayPal account, a trip to Boston for eBay Live and a home office package including a Sony Vaio laptop with Office software package, wireless mouse and Skype phone and headset
Three runners-up were also announced: cloonfadda aka Sheena Musthy, naturalmineralcosmetics aka Katja Jade, and d_boats aka Collette Davison who won the Business Seller category.
The remaining semi-finalists ranged from brand new users through to seasoned PowerSellers.
Ebay.ie havent bothered telling the Irish members about this yet…. They set up an information thread at the start of the competition, then went off to make a cup of tea and kinda forgot about it….
If it wasn’t on tamebay, the interested parties wouldnt have known the results.
I know .ie is a lame duck, but when they lose interest in their own publicity stunts half way through, its a baaaaaaaaaaaaaad sign….
I did notice that their Press Centre on the competition was just a tad out of date 🙁
Unbelievable that someone with a user ID that breaks eBay policy can become “Seller of the Year”
“User IDs may not be an email address or URL or represent an email address or URL”
â€œUser IDs may not be an email address or URL or represent an email address or URLâ€
Correct, unless it pre-existed prior to Nov 2001, where existing ones have been ‘grandfathered in’ thus allowed, but not so in this case, as it was created in Sept 2002
Sounds like james is being very petty
Im with James on this one, rules are rules.
And another thing, how can a seller of the year be voted so for the amount of business he or she is actually doing AND some of the products are suspect (Im sure Apple will be looking very closely at the product).
In reply to ebay sceptic: Seller of the Year was not just voted so for the amount of business he or she was actually doing, ebay took into consideration many other aspects eg customer communication, shop policies, feedback, shop presentation and much more. As well as that ebay met the ten finalists, and each in turn gave a presentation, describing how they got started, plans for the future etc.
In response to eBay Seller…
With all due respect and taking into consideration what you have pointed out, I support my Sceptic. The seller in question has hardly any business to speak of, narrow product range, ok presentation and very basic operator policies.
Still, well done I guess…though I do think those ipod rip offs won’t last much longer on his site.
All the listed finalists have no more than a few thousand feedbacks in total.
Personally, I think ALL4GOLF1 was robbed….. 🙂
