About Chris

TamebayChris is co-founder and editor of Tamebay, prior to that he was a full time eBay seller for over eight years making his living by trading on the platform.

Living in Thatcham, Berkshire he was a prolific poster on the eBay PowerSeller board and regularly attended eBay Universities and eBay live event that eBay used to run. Noticing a lack of general information and help he had aspirations to create a site to “Tame eBay”, bought a URL and promptly did nothing about it.

Then one day talking to Sue Bailey and Dan Wilson, Dan uttered the fateful words “You guys should both have a blog”. Sue immediately said “We can do this together” and went home to things up using the URL Chris already owned and Tamebay was born.

TamebayToday Chris is co-editor of Tamebay and works on the site full time, writing and attending numerous ecommerce events throughout the year. He also undertakes consulting assignments for companies wishing to fasttrack their eBay sales.

Chris is also available for media appearances and speaking engagements. He speaks regularly at ecommerce events around the country on TV and Radio giving ecommerce commentary. He has most recently appeared on BBC News 24, BBC You & Yours and Sky News.
