EBay's turnaround still has some distance to go

EBay's turnaround still has some distance to go

Inventory has been expanded to spur growth

  • Published: 00:00 June 5, 2010

San Jose: EBay Incorporated Chief Executive Officer John Donahoe said a turnaround at the company's e-commerce service still has a "ways to go".

EBay has made improvements during the past 18 months, Donahoe said at a technology conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Efforts to revive growth are at a four on a 10-point scale, up from a two, he said.

"We should be quite proud of the improvement," Donahoe said. But EBay "still has a ways to go".

Donahoe has expanded inventory and enhanced fraud protection to revive growth at EBay's auction and fixed-price sites after the recession crimped demand for consumer goods.

The San Jose, California-based company disappointed investors in April, when its second-quarter profit forecast missed analysts' estimates.

The shares have dropped 11 per cent this year.

In March, EBay lowered and eliminated some listing fees in its Marketplaces business to encourage more merchants to use the service.

It also began including store listings in its main search results and rebranded its classifieds site as EBay Classifieds from Kijiji.

Just a couple quick words here;
We all know that Donahoe is delusional. We all know this person is incompetent. We all know he has no real plan. We have all seen him changing horses midstream X amount of times now. All we have seen are carefully crafted weasel words which are in sharp contrast to reality. We all know he a is bald-faced, red-handed liar. (along with the entire eb world class mismanagement team)

But be verrrrry sure that there is a LOT of damage below the waterline of this miserable ship of fools called ebay. Any wonder why things are so bad? Why the operational issues, why nothing works, loads like molasses in January etc? Very simple.

A quick trip to the technical issues forum looks like a broken down site which is being left for dead, first mangled, then ignored by the owners/Tech staff. The site is in shambles on every level. In every way it can be.

A quick trip to the seller central forum shows what appears to be mass exodus, due to scamming by ebay of item visibility, before our eyes! hahahahahahaaa!

Last but not least, the monkey timer is quickly counting down on the brilliant 3 year non-plan!


Dance monkeys! Dance!
