Enable Holdings CEO Discusses Secondary Markets, Auctions, eBay

Wed May 27 2009 08:49:57
With the economy in the dumps, there's a lot of attention being paid to overstock inventory and returns. In March, eBay said it intended to become the leader in secondary marketplace (see "eBay Strategy Revealed"). We spoke to the CEO of Enable Holdings, which runs the uBid.com auction site, the RedTag fixed-price site and offline service, and the B2B Dibu Trading Corporation. We asked Jeffrey Hoffman what all the fuss is about the secondary markets, whether this strategy makes sense for a company like eBay - and how Enable Holdings is different from sites like eBay and Overstock.com - and the viability of the online auction format. Run time: 20:09

Ubid sounds much better than Craig's List or Ebay at the "Liquidation" stuff, but I don't think this internet thing is going to work out. People I know just want to go to the store and pay retail instead of waiting for the mailman.

Craig's List's sellers have an identity, eBay's sellers also have an identity with ratings.
Why are the sellers names or codes confidential on uBid?
