eBay are running a contest for developers with up to five $10,000 prizes for the winners. Open to residents of the US, Canada and the UK the aim is to create an eBay widget aimed at getting buyers to eBay.
Widgets are applications that can be embedded into blogs and websites which pull content from another website, in this case eBay. An example is the eBay Wish List widget which allows you to publish items you’d like to have bought for you on eBay.
I’ll be interested to see what new widgets the contest generates. If you’re a developer and want more people to use your eBay widgets tell us about them or post a link in comments.
