    E-bay

    Hi bev,

    As I am doing a business model unit this semester in uni , I decided to pick E-bay for the web assignment.

    Just wondering how ebays work ? I never buy anything in ebay before nor did I visit the site as well. I just prefer to buy / see the goods physically . Anyway , I’ve heard alot of good stuffs abt ebay from your entries. However, can you tell me how it works and how come it’s business keep on growing and the profit keeps on increasing as well ?

    What’s the different with other online Auction website in Australia ( is there any sites that’s similar with e-bay here ? Any competitors ? ) and how they earn the profits from the seller/buyer ?

    Sorry for troubling you but I couldnt really find information from the main site yet.

    Hope to hear from you soon ! By the way , your food photos always make me hungry ! hee

    God bless

      Re: E-bay

      Gosh the best way would be really to use the site! I think I shouldn’t be offering my opinion on this matter since I’m an employee and it’s not my position to do this.

      But honestly, the only way for you to write a killer assignment is to submerge yourself using the site instead of just using what I say and my opinion – that way i’tll be your perception of the site entirely 🙂

    Oh wow….I do ebay alot and never really think of it being a ‘solid’ place….funny to see it like that….

    and i agree you really can’t describe the ebay experience… you would really have to get an acct. (which is free), maybe participate in the forums a bit, buy or bid at least… or at least contact sellers regarding items…

    i dont think it can be boiled down to a few lines…. especially since everyones experience is so different.

      yeah, it has around 8000-9000 employees worldwide, I believe. It’s really phenomenal and a real experience to see the headquarters in real life! And I totally agree with what you say *nods* 🙂

        i think everyones experience is so different its impossible to wrap it up in a paragraph… and since it doesnt cost to register and email a few questions to sellers and check our forums -that is the best way to check it out in my opinion 🙂

        i think its so cool you work there and they obviously take care of their employees!!! nice room and nice flight – even if you did hate the chicken! lol
