QUOTE (bangerblueed @ 14 Jul 2006, 22:13) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I think google are wasting their time and resources ebay is too well established and popular no new site offering the same service is going to attract enough of ebays trade to become profitable

I think Ebay's fees have become excessive and as for PayPal, theirs are outrageous, especially their currency conversion rates, have you tried buying from overseas on Ebay? I reckon there's plenty of room for GBay to enter the market with very low (or no) listing fees and GPal to offer much lower fees for small transactions, and still make big profits. I would change over straight away and some competition would be good for all of us.
