eBay Kills the Coupon Business for Sellers

Selling coupons on eBay has been a successful niche for hundreds of eBay sellers for years. this week eBay decided they wanted in on the game.  So instead of earning fees on seller’s listings, eBay has determined that by killing off this business they can earn more in advertising revenue by offering free coupons on the site.  eBay created a new destination on eBay called eBay Extras where you can find coupons and free samples and learn about other money saving offers. There is no doubt that buyers will like the destination  –but its just another smackdown to sellers.

Hi Skip – Nice post.
As a fellow ebay seller, I think the raise in fees could well turn sellers away. Although it does makes you think of more innovative ways to sell!

Thanks
