A Small Victory For Store Owners.

Apparently complaining does work because Bill Cobb mentioned over and over again that they had heard sellers. On the store front a small victory was won. eBay announced that there would be a Stores link on the new header right next to Express. This move of course seemed to make sense and was eBay's way of throwing Store Sellers a bone.

eBay lowered the Anchor store fee from $499.95 to $299.95 a $200 shot in the arm to existing Anchor stores but still not worth the upgrade from Featured.

Also, Featured Stores and Anchor Stores now have access to eBay Research for free. Basic Store owners still have to pay for it.

I'm hitting the sack and will continue covering Bill Cobb's announcements. Nothing earth shattering but certainly worth a discussion.

Thanks for the update, Randy. I wasn't able to make that speech. Will stay tuned to your blog for more updates.

Was nice "bumping" into you yesterday. I would love to talk to you more about how you have become a professional blogger.
