eBay listings rise from 27.8 million in January to 31.5 million through May 15th 2009.
The number of listings has been climbing steadily since the beginning of the year although the rate of growth slowed a bit in the past few weeks. That may be due to the normal summer slowdown on eBay.
We won’t know if these listings are translating to sales until eBay comes out with the sales numbers for the second quarter ending a couple of weeks from now on June 30th. The results typically come out a few weeks later.
