File under ‘plugging’. I’m a huge fan of the urbane Alex Bellinger, smallbizpod and the superb smallbizpod podcasts. So it was a pleasure to scribble some thoughts for the smallbizpod blog about things people should know about eBay.
In other news. The smallbizpod piece and my own post regarding empwronline was picked up by buildaskill. Buildaskill bills itself a site dedicated to small and home-based businesses but why they would use an image featuring a Nazi rally in an article about eBay Australia is anyone’s guess. The analysis of PayPal is of interest though.
2009 is going to be a critical for eBay’s payments division. In Q3 2008, PayPal processed a greater volume of payments off eBay than on. Are we looking at a PayPal de-merger or acquisition? We shall see.
