eBay elsewhere : links for 10th February

No primary category set

A UPS driver has admitted stealing £19,000 worth of eBay parcels and selling them himself on the site. Buyers expecting delivery of goods they’d purchased instead saw them up for auction again. The 31 year old West Sussex man received a 12 month sentence suspended for 18 months plus 200 hours of community work.

The ex-fiance of Dancing on Ice star Suzanne Shaw has put their engagement rings up for sale on eBay. The have an opening bid of £5,000; personally I think they could do with much more detailed photographs.

The NYT covers the loss of the level playing field with some very nice quotes from Scot Wingo, including ““If you are selling 1000 units a day, you don’t have time to say I’m going to leave these five negatives today because they deserve it.”

  1. Re: The NYT covers the loss of the level playing field

    I think the final paragraph is the telling one.

    Personally I feel optimistic about the changes and think the will benefit my business but at the same time it would seem like such drastic changes do indicate that not all is well.

    The idea that people are not buying because the fear a retaliatory neg…….well what can you say about that.

    Should be an interesting 6 months.
