The Auction Guild Notes for Thursday 3 Feb 2000
The Online Auction Industry links to Auction Houses and Auction Service
Providers are on   http://www.auctionguild.com . Please visit and use
our affiliates links - http://www.tagnotes.com/generic.html
eBay has a relationship with eStamps and we were curious as to how much
eBay can make on relationships of this sort, so were interested in this
article. QUOTE A Wall Street Journal article that broke the news cited
people familiar with the talks as saying eBay stands to collect nearly
$10 million per year in the marketing alliance. ENDQUOTE   For full
ZDNET article
TAG is an affiliate of Stamps.Com, and we earn $5.00 per registration
made through the link on our affiliates page. So that is 2 mil
registrations using a similar reimbursement formula.

eBay will have its regularly scheduled maintenance on Fri 4 Feb between
01:00 PT and 05:00 PT

There is also a post about offensive material. Though eBay generally
permits listings of "practically anything on earth," eBay will
judiciously disallow listings or items that promote hatred, violence, or
racial intolerance, including items that promote organizations (such as
the KKK, Nazis, neo-Nazis, Skinheads, Aryan Nation) . eBay will review
listings brought to its attention by the community, and will look at the
entire listing to determine whether it falls within this rule. Relics of
groups such as the KKK or Nazi Germany may
be listed on eBay, if they are at least 50 years old, and the listing is
not used as a platform to glorify or promote the organization or its
values. eBay will remove listings of items that are not 50 years old.
