eBay to Make Gallery More Affordable?

Analyst Scott Devitt of Stifel Nicolaus met with eBay CFO Bob Swan this week. In Scott's research note published Tuesday, he mentioned something I'm not sure I've seen mentioned before.

"We note that eBay has begun to test a Gallery pricing bundle that could provide discounted gallery pictures for sellers."

He also wrote about something that sounds familiar (but I'd rather just post it than spend 5 minutes looking): "eBay has begun testing the integration of feedback into the results page following a search query. We believe the full launch of such a feature improves the consumer experience and also will improve click through for merchants that most deserve it, trusted merchants."

Making gallery images available on listings is just common sense if eBay wants the site to be as shopper-friendly as other marketplaces - eBay should definitely make it an affordable feature.

There's already an option on eBay France where if you buy gallery, subtitle and listing designer, the price is reduced. Personally I'd like to see something like xx galleries on SIF listings included with each shop subscription: as you say, it can only make the site more attractive to buyers.

If the US gallery deal is similar to Canada's Seller Pack then I can see that being a good deal. One Monthly Fee for unlimited Gallery.

It is past time for ebay to offer us somehthing free or less expensive. People are struggling to make money on ebay and we don't need them increasing prices on all their services. Remember, we are the people that put your business where it is today. Give us a break.
