Are eBay's Media Auctions Going Away in 2009?
Thanks to a comment from a reader, I took a look at the current mix (auctions to FP) in the media categories on eBay and here's what I came up with.
So in the three major categories auctions have lost favor with media sellers and are dangerously close to no longer being worth the effort for eBay, Sellers like JayandMarie may find their business model doesn't make any sense any longer. If eBay is going to go to FP only in the Media category and I have no knowledge that they are, then they should be reaching out to sellers like JayandMarie and giving them fair warning -- none of this "30-days" to convert your entire business model.
Just my 15%
