Empower sellers and get out of the way!
Randy Smythe's musings on the world of ecommerce, social networking, Web 2.0, Google, Amazon, Buy.com,Yahoo, Squidoo, online marketing and still probably a lot of stuff about eBay.
I don't think she handled it well at all. She reminded me of George Bush when she screamed 'Bring it on!' and we all know what happened after that.Are we in for a long, drawn out war with sellers?
Sellers are hurt - make no mistake about it. They're seeing good reputations destroyed by a pack of "mental giants!" Its not going to end - its going to fester and get worse until Ebay either fades away (which I can't imagine happening) or begins treating sellers like fellow human beings. They have the means to sweep out the worst sellers AND buyers - they've had it for years when they came out with a rating system. They chose to ignore it the fraud and scamming going on and now they're like a bull in a china shop because they see sales dwindling. They desperately need management with good hard business experience. This crew is from never-neverland and all they're doing is enraging sellers even more....especially when they say they believe everyone is good (until it comes to sellers!) I'm a 10 year seller with a perfect record and I closed up my Ebay store and let my listings fall to under 6! I have no interest in going back to where I'm treated like a criminal! What does that tell you? I'm not alone in this thinking that's for sure!www.ACEOart.net
