eBay Has Fun with PowerSeller 'PolarSeller' Snowmen
By: Ina Steiner
eBay sent an email to PowerSellers wishing them happy holidays, thanking them for doing business with eBay, and congratulating them on their accomplishments as valued PowerSellers. eBay included a link, writing "To show our appreciation, we've created some holiday fun just for you. Go to www.ebay.com/powersellerthankyou and start your holiday season with a smile."
The link leads to a page where eBay PowerSellers can log in and create a cartoon snowman. The snowmen are displayed together on a page that reads:
"Now that we've enjoyed another successful year together, it's time to brr-ing on some holiday fun! Create your very own PolarSeller, a virtual-snowman likeness of you. After you're done, your PolarSeller will join more snowmen created by other PowerSellers. Before long, PolarSellers will cover the mountain, so come back often to see who's joining the holiday fun. Make your PolarSeller now."
