You know what? It’s not that eBay is dying. It’s just that people would rather buy something on-line in ANY OTHER FASHION. There are too many eBay horror stories, too many fees, and not enough good deals anymore. If a service doesn’t give its clientele what they want and can’t give them an adequate level of safety and comfort, it’s going to go down. I’ll repeat what I’ve said before: Burn, eBay, Burn.
And if that’s not enough for them, eBay is now busy shooting itself in the foot:
eBay has struck a deal with the Web retailer Buy.com that allows the company to sell millions of books, DVDs, electronics and other items on eBay without paying the full complement of eBay fees.
Unbelievable. eBay can’t die soon enough. I just wish someone would start up a competitive website for when eBay finally dies. I know I’m not alone.
