EBay Inc, once a scrappy auction site for mom and pop sellers, is enticing some of the world's largest retailers by arguing it can help them compete better against e-commerce leader Amazon.com Inc.
EBay Chief Executive John Donahoe and other executives have been telling retailers that Amazon is their enemy, while eBay is a friend because, unlike Amazon, it holds no inventory.
eBay holds no inventory, yet they charge a per-item / per-month insertion fee to merchants wanting to upload their inventory.
can list products on Amazon for free, just by clicking the "Have one to sell?" link.
they are charging for bringing eyeballs to your product.... think thats to much?
but if you aren't going to test sell thru and blindly post 1000 SKU's at BIN and hope and pray they sell... yes are stuck with a bill.
its the same as paying for PPC keywords that bring views but no sales... you don't keep paying for that.
I think the listing fee thing keeps just tire kickers or crazy people that don't know what they are doing from just littering all over the place.
