Is this a resurgence of the eBay we came to love?Posted Friday, September 3, 2010, at 10:38 AM
It accomplishes several things. It makes a statement about being environmentally concerned (we have a "green" statement on all our listings), the first 100,000 boxes come free to test sellers (no, we are not one), and it promotes buyers using it to resell (on eBay, of course).
Now here comes the quirky, fun side of it. There are spaces on it for 6 (I think) folks to write a personal note about what they got or about the area they live, or.....whatever. It gives a little history of where the box has been.
They are also creating a discussion forum so boxes can be tracked. I am not sure how that will work and am sure privacy issues will be addressed, but it sounds neat. (to use a term our daughter cringes at)
If it proves successful, eBay will make it available to everyone. It may have a cost associated with it, but it is advertising so they will surely keep the cost lower than buying regular boxes.
Of course, I've made a suggestion on that so maybe if they accept it they can make an ad like the creation of Windows 7. I'll be famous or least maybe in Bell Buckle.
