Interesting stuff in this article: Online Marketplaces - IRCE 2011 Report: eBay pitches partnerships - Internet Retailer
eBay points out that Amazon competes against its sellers.
The reference was not just to Amazon, as other online retailers are creating marketplaces and competing with sellers on those sites, Payne noted in an interview after his speech. Merchants that have online marketplaces include Buy.com, Walmart.com and Sears.com.
Right now I am dealing with dealers on Amazon competing with affiliates and that Amazon is advertising on the merchants trademark for the dealers. My affiliates are restricted on trademark and we are working with the merchant to dial in dealers. So how do I dial in Amazon?
Payne described eBay’s recent announcements of plans to acquire e-commerce technology companies, notably GSI Commerce and Magento.
He says eBay will continue to experiment with features like social shopping and a group gifting feature that lets friends and relatives pool their money online, using eBay's PayPal payment service, to buy a gift.

Magento is a preferred platform if Ebay is going to affiliate it makes sense

It makes sense that if eBay really wants to compete in the affiliate market that the purchase of Magento would appease the need for a ready shopping cart platform. Though Amazon has just tripped over themselves in the cutting off affiliates in states are that are IM unfriendly Amazon has been doing this a lot longer than eBay so eBay is definately the one out to prove critics wrong.
It will be interesting to see now that IPO's are back
