Techdirt: eBay Bans Auctions Of Digital Goods

2008-04-03 13:34 - Links

eBay has banned the direct sale of purely digital goods from either its auctions or its direct sales offerings. Instead, those who want to sell digital goods need to put up a classified ad on the site, rather than a transactional platform.

Hallelujiah! There's a whole host of reasons to avoid eBay, but nevertheless there are some reasons to still head back. Rare, used, goods in some categories are perfectly good things to buy, and hard to find elsewhere. But the "wholesale list" people and their ilk have clogge dup the system for quite some time. I'm happy to see official pressure to kick them off.
