A group of fed-up eBay merchants is petitioning Google to start an auction site, following eBay’s decision to hike rates on eBay Stores, according to a report in AuctionBytes. Those hikes have clearly struck a nerve with some sellers. Says one:
C’mon Google…you know you have what it takes to get an auction site going…. Please…let’s show those guys that their time is almost up…..
Still, it seems highly doubtful that Google will decide to take on what is still eBay’s stronghold because a few disgruntled eBay merchants ask it to. Google has plenty of other ways it’s challenging eBay.
