eBay: The ultimate “that’s Christmas sorted” shop

No primary category set

In their latest TV advert eBay are promoting themselves as the ultimate “that’s Christmas sorted” shop. Featuring a father and son both waking up, shaving and dressing with similar but different tastes even down to the devices they listen to music on, the ad hits home that 80% of products sold on eBay are brand new.

  1. 80% of the products sold on Ebay are brand new because they have killed off most of the collectables and interesting categories.

    Constant little shifts since Wenig took over, each one edging non-product-indentifier categories out.

    Trashing turbo lister, removing shop links from searches, focussing on product identifiers

    Ebay is still trying to ape Amazon and one day it will get there – about the same time as that room full of chimpanzees at typewriters comes up with the complete works of Shakespeare.

  2. Same products on Ebay and Amazon.98% of sales AMZ 2% Ebay the last two weeks.Higher prices on AMZ.None are FBA.
    Iv had a few auctions that get 60 views when two years ago it would of been 400.Ebay really need to boot off the Chinese sellers clogging up search and with terrible delivery times hidden from buyers etc.Probably too late though,the decent buyers have all left.I would love Ebay and AMZ to be 50/50,but that boat has sailed.
