I Found Another Diamond Seller!
But, this time I'm not going to "out them" because they are not an outside company. They began on eBay and have finally been recognized for their hard work. From what I understand they are one of 10 existing eBay sellers who have been acknowledged as Diamond sellers. Their monthly sales exceed $500k in GMV and their DSRs are 4.9 across the board.
When eBay announced the "Diamond" program, I felt it was just cover for the Buy.com deal, and I'm on record that I have no problem with deals as long as they are open to existing eBay sellers. Offering deals to outside companies without providing the same opportunity for existing sellers is wrong in my view. It took awhile, but it looks like eBay is finally acknowledging the hard work of some of their largest sellers.
It remains to be seen what benefits they will earn from this new sales level but at least eBay has opened their Diamond doors to one of their own.
Now we have to get them to help the small sellers and the tone of this blog may change in 2009.
