  1. “eBay is focused on delivering the best choice and selection of inventory to buyers across the globe,” said Bob Kupbens, VP of Global Trust & Seller Experience, eBay. “This new integration with Shopify will bring even more great products to eBay buyers, while offering Shopify merchants the ability to seamlessly drive their business and brand at scale by tapping into our vibrant marketplace.”


    Anyone that hitches their “Shopify Wagon” to the broken, warped, mangled Ebay, is apparently just LOOKING FOR a way to lower their income, pay MORE in fees, and lose even more placement in search.

    This Bob is really something.

    Now he’s every Shopify sellers partner.


  2. Favorite excerpts from the above Ebay / Shopify / Partner Bob statement:

    —“Shopify merchants will have the opportunity to surface their brand and products to a massive new audience of more than 169 million active eBay buyers.”
    (Incuding all the buyers that Ebay allows to steal items from sellers, and never get bad feedback!)

    —“eBay shoppers will benefit from added selection”
    (That would be the selections that Shopify sellers TOOK WITH THEM when they left Ebay!!)

    —“selection and choice from potentially hundreds of thousands of Shopify merchants.”
    (Yeah, Ebay claims 25 million sellers, but they NEED Shopify sellers. Just tell me one thing……… HOW WILL THEY EVER EVEN GET SEEN??? – Will they be the chosen few that have access to a SEARCH ENGINE THAT WORKS???)

    —“enable Shopify merchants to immediately sync inventory information”
    (WHAT? Would ANYONE be DUMB enough to sync their inventory to a BROKEN SYSTEM like Ebay???)

    —“Customer orders will also be imported to Shopify and allow merchants to fulfill orders from both platforms in one location”
    So a Shopify seller wouldn’t have to be “ON” Ebay at all huh? “So, like, what do you call selling on Shopify instead of Ebay???” Answer: “A good start”)

    —“messages from buyers on eBay will also be visible within Shopify”
    (So I could say: “Come to my Shopify store. That way, neither one of us will have to deal with Ebay”. But the smart money says Ebay will HAVE to throttle THOSE messages. You already prevent Ebayers from talking to their customers. HOW DO YOU SQUARE THIS with your current purge of sellers, that you think are selling “ Off of Ebay”? Bob: There is SOMETHING wrong with your logic).

    —“while offering Shopify merchants the ability to seamlessly drive their business and brand at scale by tapping into our vibrant marketplace.”

    —“This integration continues to make selling online easier for Shopify merchants to conveniently manage their product catalog across multiple channels like online, in-person, marketplaces, social and messaging all in one dashboard.”
    (I can’t TAKE ANYMORE OF THIS TALK!!! And PLEASE GOD, let it not be Ebay’s dashboard)

    Bob, I have some more to say, but I just have to rest a bit. I am ALL worn out. Maybe someone else can finish the rest of your announcement. Say, you didn’t mention how Ebay would “Benefit” financially from this relationship….. Care to elaborate? Have you mentioned the answer to Shopify sellers??? HOW COULD YOU FORGET TO MENTION THE “SMALL” FEES YOU WILL BE GETTING???
