eBay Chatter - gleanings

Posted Saturday, February 16, 2008, at 8:45 AM

Take your pick.
The Washington State Ferries group will auction off two of their 143 foot ferries on eBay. http://www.kirotv.com:80/news/15312793/d... I rode on these boats, what a deal!

How about a 1953 Mercedes-Benz 170 Db Pickup truck? http://news.windingroad.com:80/etc/ebay-...

At least the Software & Information Industry Association is going about the effort to shut down pirated software in a reasonable manner. They are suing the pirates who are selling it and not trying to take a chunk out of eBay. http://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/stori... In my opinion some other Verified Rights Owners (VERO) are absurd when they sue eBay for not knowing that a pair of jeans is real or fake. I could rant on about that but……..

In addition to the original statement about insertion and Final Value Fees a few weeks ago, eBay is lowering insertion rates for 'media' sales like books, music, video and game software.

Starting PriceCurrent FeeNew Lower Fee
$0.01 - 0.99 (auction-style only)$.20$.10
$1.00 - 9.99 (auction-style & fixed price)$.40$.25
$10.00 - 24.99 (auction-style & fixed price)$.60$.35
