In this cnbc video interview, ebaY CEO John Donahoe makes a couple rather astounding statements.
Starting at about 1 minute into the interview, Mr. Donahoe is asked: “Anecdotally, I’ve heard from a couple business owners who say they’ve stopped doing business on the platform because of an increase in seller fees. Are you hearing that blowback too?”, to which he bluntly replied “No, not at all”

Got a chuckle out of this:
The Marketplace Fairness Coalition, a group of businesses from around the country, said that eBay was armed with “inaccurate comments” as it fought the bill.

Wow! Reuters reporting CEO Donahoe’s entire pay up 81% over last year. The numbers are staggering, yes?
To better understand, if all that money were represented as nickles and dimes, they would stretch clear from his bankbook to Uranus and back.
It’s another one for the ebaY history books.

due to cancer?
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
I’m quite sure the RésuméGate scandal has nothing whatsoever to do with his departure, or my hysterical laughter.
All comedy aside, now it’s time for ebaY (and in particular, John Donahoe) to explain how and why it was that they had that false info on their site for years.
I have a feeling that’s not all.
Maybe the comedy isn’t over yet? It appears that PR head Amanda Pires, formerly of ebay/paypal PR spokesperson infamy is also stepping down.
Thanks for the laugh. ;p

This is the end result of disruptive innovation.
I don’t think the Genie is going back in the bottle.
But don’t worry; ebaY has found a new way to get more “wallet share” from the buyers too, this time via secret experiments with the bidding increments.
Does ebaY really seem like a good place to try and buy or sell at?
