eBay Express in Search Results/Overstock Interview

By: Ina Steiner

Sponsored Link

Users are reporting that they are starting to see eBay Express listings at the bottom of search results on eBay.com. Which is strange, considering that all eBay Express listings pull from eBay.com (and eBay Stores) listings. That means some listings would show up twice in search results - one in the main section and one at the bottom.

Overstock Auction Sellers Not Pleased: Sellers are reacting to an AuctionBytes Newsflash article about the changes going on at Overstock.com Auctions.

Given that eBay recently launched a promo where sellers in certain categories would see their listings appear on the comparison site bought by eBay (shopping.com), it suggests that some will now see one listing appear on 3 different sites: eBay Express, eBay.co.uk and shopping.com.  How much exposure does one SIF or BIN require these days?

Guess you have to stock the empty shelves somehow.

It is the beginning of the end for Overstock auctions and since they aren't inclined to offer a stores platform their investment in their Auction platform over the years seems a waste. You will nor be seeing them running around Boston this year for eBay Live. For that matter you may not see any eBay sellers either.

Sounds like Stormy is in for some 'stormy weather'. Her comments reflect a company that seems more interested in transaction-based customers than allowing sellers to build ongoing customer relationships.  Relationships like that can be built with permanent stores, for example.
