The Auction Guild Notes for Monday 20 Mar 2000
http://www.auctionguild.com for links to Online Auction Industry
Auction Houses and Service Providers.
eBay is streamlining the bidding process in the following ways:
1. The Item page will have a simpler bid box. The way you enter a bid
remains the same, but the look of the bid box and bidding pages will
have less text and clutter.
2. If outbid, you can now re-bid directly on the You Have Been
Outbid page without having to hit the back button or another link.
3. Buyers will be able to bid more quickly and sellers might receive
more bids

In an effort to stimulate eBay magazine sales, Krause Magazines is
offering a limited edition eBay bear to the first 5,000 subscribers.
The bear is sent on receipt of payment, and is available to U.S.
addresses only. Krause sells the magazine on eBay under the user id
emagazine, and with a feedback rating of 50 with 181 neutrals which
are predominantly negative, we would recommend you proceed with
caution. http://members.ebay.com/aboutme/emagazine
