Ebay Versus Google

A little war? between Ebay and Google…

Not much commentary is needed on this one. Here‚??s what happened:

  1. eBay doesn‚??t allow merchants to use Google Checkout to settle eBay transactions. Google invited eBay online sellers attending eBay Live! in Boston this week to a party that they called the Google Checkout Freedom Party.
  2. eBay decides to pull all U.S. advertising on Google.
  3. Google backs down, cancels the party.

  4. Google looks like a complete wimp; eBay looks like a bully.

The party appeared to be nothing more than Google poking a little fun at eBay‚??s restrictive policies. eBay hit back with the biggest weapon they had, suggesting that tension between the companies goes very deep.

I don’t know what to say… share your thoughts here…

  1. It looks like Google could be the next best thing when it comes to auction sites, I google have a go then eBay will have a fight on their hands.
