Why eBay Won't Win Its War Against Amazon

What happens when an online auction site tries to get all store-like, and a non-bricks-and-mortar buying destination starts buying into bidding? Apparently, you get Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN) pumped up into a one-stop shop for everything you need, while eBay (NSDQ: EBAY) ends up tilting toward irrelevance. Let me explain.

The apparent battle between the two was the subject of an unusually interesting piece in Sunday's New York Times. (Unusually interesting for The Times, that is, which isn't much known for cutting to the chase.) The article touched upon some threads which have been bubbling up for months. That would be the widespread dissatisfaction among eBay's buyers and sellers, who've been jostled by increased fees and inexplicable changes in the online auction destination's feedback policies.  [InfoWorld...]    [Comments...]
