eBay Express UK and Germany are being retired - http://developer.ebay.com/community/...ng-uk-and.html
I wonder if this is a death knell for eBay Express USA?

Here is a case where the branding definitely didn't help. If they would have kept the infrastructure but came up with a new, creative name for the service, I believe that their odds of success would have been greater.

Did ebay express USA ever have life to start with? Maybe in some categories it is popular, I don't know? At one point I started a poll in one of my ebay groups asking how many people preferred express to ebay, and it was unanimous- everyone said they were sticking with ebay.com, they didn't like ebay express.
At any rate, we now sort of have ebay express on the main site anyway, with "best match" being the default search.

I never cared much for eBay Express. But a fair number of sales came from there. I don't know if those sales would have occurred without eE or not though. It seems like I can sell items listed on eE for higher prices than general eBay sales.

The fact that they forced sellers to take Paypal from buyers that weren't confirmed kept most sellers away.
Out of the left side of their mouth they tell you if you take PP from an unconfirmed address you can be screwed.
Out of the right side of their mouth they tell you you must leave yourself wide open to be screwed if you sell on eBay express.

Ditto. As a seller, I couldn't opt out fast enough.
Rampant stupidity on eBay/PayPal's part(s)... one side mandating that you violate the policies of the other.
Kinda like international sales... PayPal repeatedly tells you to never ever ever ship to an unconfirmed address, all the while eBay touts the safety of PayPal for international transactions and disallows other payment methods.
Of course this dilemma is now solved for PowerScrewers, but it leaves everyone else dangling...EPN - Cautiously, but paranoically, optimistic.
