Ebay Sues Amazon Claiming Illegal And Unethical Activity
Ayelet Wolf 10/18/2018 5:16:43 PM

Unethical... sure. But illegal? How is it illegal that #Amazon exploited some weaknesses in the #eBay system? Violating a website's terms of use is grounds for being suspended or kicked off that site, but you can't go to jail for it. How can eBay claim this is illegal behavior? $AMZN $EBAY

Ebay Sues Amazon Claiming Illegal And Unethical Activity

Good point. And that was far from #Uber's only crime. They are probably one of the most unethical companies around. Yet they still make a bundle. Same with #Amazon. Even if they lose in court, it will likely amount to a minor slap on the wrist - a tiny percentage of the profits they reaped from this activity.

As long as the punishments are insignificant, the crimes will continue as the reward far outweighs the risk. I hope #eBay wins.

There is some truth to what Craig says. Companies always need to be wary of the competition. #eBay should either have had better safeguards in place, or even better, had they had better terms for their sellers, #Amazon would never have been able to steal them in the first place.

PayPal After Q4 2017: The Easy Money Has Been Made

Why did #Ebay abandon #PayPal and who the heck is #Ayden? I never heard of them but would love to know the story of what the catalyst for such a monumental change was.

This is the first I've heard of #Ayden. Would love to learn more about why #Ebay parted ways with #Paypal. What could have gotten them to have abandoned such a longstanding relationship?

It can't simply be a matter of lower processing fees or surely Paypal would have matched them.

#eBay dropped #PayPal for #Ayden. That's going to severaly hurt PayPal. Who knows how much longer they'll be around? Between the disolution of their longstanding partnership with ebay, and increased competition from traditional credit cards and the new wave of cryptocurrencies, I'd say $PYPL's days are numbered.

I was initially surprised to hear that #eBay would no longer be using #PayPal as it's payment processor. But you've made an eloquent case showing that this will not be have a critical impact. My outlooks has shifted from planning to sell my shares, to buying more now that the price has dropped due to panicked shareholders. $EBAY $PYPL

Bullish On Ebay
James Hunter 11/7/2016 10:01:35 PM

I have a love/hate relationship with #Ebay. I agree it is still the go-to place to sell my stuff. They've done a great job on cornering the auction market. That being said, I think they've completely dropped the ball and let #Amazon eat into their overall used-goods market share. They consistently fail to be innovative while Amazon is always leading in innovation. Perhaps the company's foray into structured date will have an impact as the author suggests.

Bullish On Ebay

I couldn't agree with this article more. #eBay has always been underated, overshadowed by #Amazon's success. But ebay isn't going anywhere. It's still the best place to go if you need to sell an item, and far safer than a place like Craig's list. $EBAY $AMZN

Bullish On Ebay
Bruce Powers 11/7/2016 9:22:03 PM

Good read, but you lost me on the whole structured/unstructured data concept. When I want to find an item on #eBay, I do a search for that item. Why would I care who the seller is, or where he lives, or what letter his last name starts with? What am I missing?

Impressed #eBay is being so aggressive with it's acquisitions. They've let #Amazon completely eclipse them when it comes to innovation. $EBAY $AMZN.

Can eBay Compete With Amazon?
David Reynolds 7/19/2016 11:21:01 PM

As much as I like #eBay, there's no way they'll every beat #Amazon. Amazon is far more innovative, has better customer service, more buyer protection, a proper review system, and an entire echo system with Echo, Kindle Fire, etc. $AMZN $EBAY
