With the holidays coming up, people are going to be looking for discounts, and they’re going to be doing so online. One site, which many are likely to come across is BigDeal.com. This is an online auction site, which the company describes as "social gaming meets e-commerce" or "Zynga meets eBay". It’s claimed about 40,000 customers since launching in November of last year, and its traffic is growing steadily.
eBay has launched a rewards program called eBay Bucks, which is free and open to all U.S. eBay users. Consumers can get 2% back on most items purchased through eBay’s Marketplace with PayPal.
The program was previously available in beta, but now it’s widely available. Users will get reward certificates at the beginning of each calendar quarter for the amount of eBay Bucks accumulated in the previous quarter. You have 30 days to spend the eBay bucks. They will be automatically applied to purchases upon checkout.
eBay and PayPal announced today that they are now offering Bill Me Later as a payment option during checkout. This means that "qualified" customers in the U.S. can now buy items and pay for them over time without using a credit card.
The option will be available for Buy It Now and approved auction purchases on eBay. It is also available at "tens of thousands" of online stores that accept PayPal Express Checkout.
Update: eBay is starting to test the badges. The company made the following announcement:
Over the next few weeks you may see a new seller badge appearing on some item pages and in search results. This badge is part of the new eBay Top-rated seller status announced last week and launching in October. Starting this week and over the next few weeks, we’ll be testing the badge in search results and item pages for a small percentage of eBay traffic.
You can hardly talk about eBay without bringing out the disgust in all of the people who feel they have been wronged by the eCommerce giant. This group is comprised mostly of sellers who feel eBay has treated them with anything but respect, particularly since changing feedback policies in early 2008 (of course that’s not the only thing they don’t like. See my top ten list of seller frustrations).
Monroe Labouisse, the director of PayPal’s business on eBay in the US and Canada sat down with eBay’s chief Blogger Richard Brewer-Hay and sketched out this post explaining the policies behind eBay Item Holds.
An eBay Item Hold is when eBay asks PayPal to hold a payment in a seller’s PayPal account for up to 21 days. This occurs as a "buyer protection" when eBay believes the transaction is more likely than the average transaction to be fraudulent.
eBay is lowering its fees U.S. sellers on its site pay to list fixed-price items in an effort to attract new buyers and better compete with rivals like Amazon.com.
Sellers will now pay a flat rate of 35 cents for a 30-day listed period, up from the previous seven-day standard. Sellers will be able to list multiple quantities of the same item for a single 35-cent listing fee.
eCommerce has come a long way over the years. You can buy or sell just about anything online.
You can buy DVDs, cars, digital music, real estate, and brides. You can sell televisions, cosmetics, hand-made crafts, and even your skin as ad-space. You can apparently even sell your entire life – in a manner of speaking anyway.
A 44-year-old man by the name of Ian Usher recently put his up on the auction block via eBay (the only way to go to unload your history).
Online auction site eBay has begun to introduce changes in the feedback that sellers can leave about buyers. The changes were first announced in January.
Sellers on eBay are no longer allowed to leave neutral or negative comments about buyers on the site. eBay has also changed the way it calculates a member’s positive feedback percentage score.
eBay cautioned in its annual report that it will be challenging to win back former customers while also trying to attract new users to its properties.
The online auction site recently experienced its first major sellers revolt with customers boycotting the site after unpopular changes were made to fees and policies. At the end of the week long boycott eBay saw a 13 percent decrease in auctions
