Will eBay Strangle Ecommerce?

from the that-old-question-again? dept

It seems that every few months there’s a story about how eBay remains the “king” of ecommerce and wondering if that will cause it to destroy other ecommerce sites. While I think eBay certainly has an impact on other ecommerce sites, I imagine it’s only in certain areas. There are many goods that I would never feel comfortable ordering over eBay, where it is less clear who I am buying from and what sort of guarantees they provide.
