TameBay Morsels 29/04/09

No primary category set

The old head of eBay Express in the UK is now the mastermind behind the relaunch of Woolworths online – Woolies was well loved, let’s hope it fares better online than Express (although to be fair we got lots from the legacy of eBay Express – Best Match for starters 😯 )

Good Morning Vietnam! After several months trials at ebay.chodientu.vn eBay have coughed up for a new URL, ebay.vn which they’ve promptly redirected to their partner site.

eBay met with their shareholders at the AGM and all the Wall Street Journal could find to report on was some guy complaining his shares were down 50% (Is it still news that the share price is down the toilet?).

eBay are starting to “get” blogging at last. After years of the venerable but now defunct Chatter with no comments allowed, the eBay Partner Network blog is proud to announce that they’re enabling blog comments. They must have learnt something from Richard Brewer-Hay about blogging as they’ll publish both positive and critical comments so feel free to say what you really feel 😉

I was surprised to see BT Tradespace start to follow me on Twitter, but according to our old chum, Dan Wilson, they dig this social media stuff.

Those guys at vzaar have been kind enough to host a session from CA Catalyst discussing “How to turn your browsers into buyers“.

Finally if you’re at a loose end tomorrow and are in or near London it’s the final day of Internet World at Earls Court. Entry is free so pop along and keep an eye out for me as I’ll be wandering around somewhere on the exhibition floor.

Disclosure: ChannelAdvisor and vzaar are advertisers with TameBay.

  1. I take the opposite view, it will attract a lot of attention because of the Woolworths name, if they get the right products in it could do well, too much to hope that he might develop some sort of marketplace, like pixmania
