What Do You Think of the eBay Consignment Center?
By: Ina Steiner
eBay long ago traded in its army of Trading Assistants for eBay Valets, consisting of just two companies. Now it has launched the eBay Consignment Center
- but it features no army.
A visit to the landing page shows eight categories. Clicking on Art Pottery shows just one consignment seller - Just Art Pottery. all but one of the other categories likewise feature just one seller, with the Sports Cards category featuring two.
In the Terms and Conditions, eBay states "Consignment sellers will be required to list consigned item(s) on the eBay Site exclusively, for at least 6 months."
That seems extraordinary to limit consignment sellers to operating exclusively through the eBay marketplace - yet it doesn't show the same commitment. The next line: "eBay has the ability to cease eBay consignment center at any time." And the next line gives eBay the right to expel or add consignment sellers at any time.
We came across the new eBay Consignment Center through this posting
on the eBay blog. Let us know what you think and if you'd consider signing up to participate.
