There has been no shortage of speculation and rumors that eBay will lower fees this January.
I think there is now some concrete basis to the speculation. In today’s AuctionBytes Newsletter, Ina Steiner reported on a conversation with eBay spokesman, Hani Durzy, that “we are always looking at ways to adjust the marketplace to make sellers more successful.” Durzy further commented in the article, “It appears that the pain point caused by the ratio of upfront fees versus success fees seems to be a little more severe in fixed-price listings.” But, he added, “everything is on the table” as evident by the testing eBay has done in 2007.
