eBay’s Seller Rebellion

[qi:004] eBay sellers decided to boycott eBay listings in order to protest the recent changes in the feedback policy and fee-hikes. The listings dropped 13% or 13 million items in a week, reports USA Today, citing third party sources. eBay denies that there has been any impact on its listings. I don’t buy the company line in this case. eBay and its management needs to take a cold hard look at why the sellers took such an extreme step. In my opinion it is a corporate low-point for any company when your customers decide to strike and boycott you? By the way, eBay’s new nickname FeeBay is quite funny actually.
