    EBay Forecast Misses Estimates After Shoppers Defect
    http://www.businessweek.com/news/201...mazon-com.html

    "Chief Executive Officer John Donahoe is entering the third year of a turnaround effort to revive growth in the companyís main Marketplaces site. He has expanded inventory, beefed up fraud protection for buyers, and steered the company away from auction sales. Those changes havenít stemmed consumer defections to Amazon.com Inc., according to Citigroup Inc."

    "Amazon.com is attracting new visitors at a faster clip than EBay, according to Reston, Virginia-based ComScore Inc. EBayís monthly unique U.S. visitors grew 1.2 percent in the first three months of the year from the same period a year earlier, versus Amazon.comís 27 percent growth, ComScore said."

    I guess it's hard to fire the person responsible for the destruction of the affiliate program - I wonder if they gave him a golden handshake when he left?

    Turning anti-affiliate as EPN did is equivalent to biting the hand that feeds you. Their demise is but a question of time.

    "faster clip than eBay" ?? That's hilarious. Ignorant biased media always leaves something out of their skewed statistics. Like, eBay receives 115,000,000 visitors monthly just from the US alone. While Amazon only receives 74,000,000 US visitors a month. Ofcourse Amazon is going to have a higher growth percentage over three months.
