Cool, let's hope for changes from the top down.

Actually things were not that bad back in the day under Meg Whitman or John Donahoe. That being said, many of the policy changes within eBay itself didn't really come down from the CEO, it was usually VP's from within the org driving such changes.

What would I give to get the "old" eBay back when sellers could sell just about anything with impunity without risk of getting suspended. These days, eBay is beginning to resemble more of an Amazon, driving the smallish sellers out more and more.

EVERYONE has a boss, and Devin Wenig was no exception. Maybe shareholders were not quite happy with the way things are going, or how sellers are being treated. We can all hope hope for the later, but I'm not holding my breath.

Just another sign of eBay being driven out of business by Amazon, IMHO. They'll get a new guy in to try (and most likely fail) to better compete.

EBay CEO Devin Wenig is stepping down as the company reviews potential sale of assets


What assets does Ebay have?

Articles mention StubHub and the eBay classifieds platform.

Every article says exactly the same thing (as usual, because the MSM doesn't do any reporting anymore) so it's not too hard to find. Seems like a sign of bad times.

maybe they'll start selling off their "assets" to turn out a good 4th Q

Cragistlist, StubHub and Skype maybe up for sale...

As far as I know eBay broke all ties with Craigslist after selling their minority stake in CL back to CL in 2015. They no longer have anything to do with Skype either since they sold it to Microsoft in like 2010.

We can all hope to see changes at eBay that are for the better.

Unfortunately, that is unlikely in the extreme.

eBay will continue to push forward their own payment system and try to compete with Amazon on everything from listings, returns, distribution, etc. Doomed to fail.

They need to embrace their niche. They need to support their sellers. People need to feel safe listing a MacBook or iPad for some quick painless cash.

Also, anyone who has called eBay vs Paypal vs Amazon will know that eBay support, in general, is an absolute joke. Poorly trained and can't be understood at all.

Default Re: Ebay CEO stepping down

I have been contacting eBay for literally over a year trying to get them to do something about a category I am selling in and no reply on their part. The canned response I get is:

"We are aware of the issue and you're not the only person complaining about this, please be sure that we are working on it"


The problem I was contacting eBay about is related to search results, buyers are not able to find the items they are looking for because of a glitch. The glitch resulted in the respective category being dead in comparison to eBay.co.uk or eBay.com. Still to this day nothing has changed and I think nothing will change!!



eBay search sucks to death, maybe this is why people gave up looking for stuff there!!

Ebay has bad sellers as well as bad buyers,it cant back its sellers if it lets anyone everyone sells anything,everything.
The better sellers with good merchandise are not wiling to sell their better merchandise on Ebay .
Someone once told me,if you put the pricey stuff next to the junk,you are not going to get a better price.
Hence come the boutique auctions,they would not accept common junks .or blemished goods,they stay with EBAY

To me, this just reads as follows: "Things are bad and shareholders are unhappy! We're going to squeeze more money out of our sellers"

It's going to get harder to maintain TRS. Get ready to pay 10% more + promotion fees and yet not even show up on the first page while still giving away your stuff to scammers for free at your shipping expense because eBay says so.

EB has stood by me far more than AMZ when competitors attack me or i have fr.aud buyers.

Lost my AMZ account for 4 months after competitors attacked me, and i still have a f.ake trad.emark complaint i am fighting to remove. the competitor who claimed it is not even mentioned in my listings, photos, ads, etc, but AMZ approved the complaint regardless. none of this has ever come close to happening to me on EB

Hate to say this but amazon doesn't help you. It's amazing how such a giant company leaves the doors for abusers open.
