New eBay CEO Opens Up in LinkedIn Post

On his one-week anniversary of officially taking the helm at eBay, Jamie Iannone posted a message on social networking site LinkedIn.

The new CEO thanked his predecessor Scott Schenkel, who had filled the position left vacant by Devin Wenig’s abrupt departure in September and will remain as an advisor through mid-June.

Iannone said eBay is doing everything it can to support buyers and sellers as COVID-19 continues to affect communities and day-to-day life across the country and around the world.

Iannone, who had been with eBay from 2001 through 2009, referenced eBay’s 25-year anniversary this year, saying it had moved from a Silicon Valley trailblazer and innovator to become an ecommerce mainstay.

One thing that hadn’t changed, he said, was eBay’s purpose, which he said he had carried with him throughout his career.

“Now, as much of the world navigates uncharted and increasingly turbulent waters, I am proud to see eBay’s steady purpose manifest itself in new and exciting ways as the company does everything we can to support its buyers and sellers as COVID-19 continues to affect communities and day-to-day life across the country and around the world,” he wrote.

You can find the full post on LinkedIn, which he ended with the following message:

“To everyone at eBay, to all of our buyers and sellers – let’s keep doing what we do best. Let’s keep driving to make a difference.”

  1. “To everyone at eBay, to all of our buyers and sellers – let’s keep doing what we do best. Let’s keep driving to make a difference.”

    Stop trying to gouge sellers by charging sellers a category based Final Value Fee on the Sales Tax collected visa vie eBay’s new “Simplified Fees” for all the sellers who are required to enroll into Managed Payments this coming July, and I might be willing to get on board with that statement.

  2. A good start would be to reverse all wenigs anti seller changes.

    but we all know that the only changes fleecebay will make is to cost sellers more money.

  3. Mr Iannone

    If you follow this site or have someone follow this site, could you please consider one thing with regards to managed payments. eBay US has a lot of sellers who sell on the US site but do not reside in the US. I am one of those. I have received the “invitation” to sign up for managed payments. I am required to register before the end of July or apparently my store will be frozen.

    I do not have a SSC number, therefore I can never sign up and you will lose a 5 figure seller. Does that seem logical to you? I can’t seem to get anyone with half a brain to consider this. There maybe thousands if not millions of sellers on the US eBay who do not have a social security number. Has anyone given a single thought to what is going to happen to them….ME?

    You have many Chinese accounts that show items being in the US. They don’t have social security numbers.

    This is a very serious situation, Mr. Iannone. One I hope you get get very involved in.

    Regards
