Is eBay slowing down? Yes, maybe, but.......

Posted Wednesday, November 14, 2007, at 10:32 AM

Here is an article in the Internet Retailer http://www.internetretailer.com/dailyNew... about how eBay has leveled off or declined in three categories of the online apparel, accessories and beauty market, but guess what? They still dominate those categories as the leader!

So, the inevitable slowing of growth is by no means the death knell" for the eBay market platform. There are up and coming auction sites and many eBay "wannabes", but the future is still bright on eBay.

There are many ways that you as an individual or your company can benefit from a presence on eBay. It is all there on the site. While all the links, forums, chat rooms, groups, discussion boards, blogs and pages can seem overwhelming, it can all be consumed. Bon appetit!

I have just recently become an eBay connoisseur and I will admit...it's addictive.

My husband thinks I will increase eBay 4th quarter profits all by myself. :)

It can truly be addictive. Buy with care, sell with abandon.

We have some regular customers that we have come to know as compulsive buyers. We now ask them TWICE after each sale if they are sure that they want to conclude the sale.

We are teaching them to sell, so we hope that at least they will keep up with their addiction.
