Buy.com gunning after eBay

This one came out of the left field, but it’s indeed a great, stealthy move by Buy. Trading items with people you know– sure sounds like a platform that will be able to effectively deal with many of the shortcomings in eBay’s model. I have never been a big fan of eBay, especially with the rate hikes in recent years. Bought a motorcycle through it once, but I DID pick it up locally. Selling to people you will be having direct contact with, or at least know a lot more about, takes much of the insecurity out of the buying experience. Being overcharged or scammed may no longer only result in bad reviews… haha. I may just have to check this out. Looks like my resistance of becoming a Facebookie will be futile afterall…
