Amazon strategy shift may threaten eBay


"Currently, people and businesses can sell used goods on the site only if Amazon itself offers the same items new. For instance, if Amazon sells a CD by the rock group U2, then it allows a seller to offer a used copy of the CD. This way, Amazon doesn’t need to create new product descriptions or displays. Under the new plan, sellers would be able to create their own product descriptions and displays, Amazon executives said, according to [Bancorp Piper Jaffray analyst] Rashtchy."
