Recently terapeak launched its NEW product for PayPal. The terapeak for PayPal product is now available and ready for eBay sellers and merchants to get a whole new powerful tool for understanding online business.

I think this is an exciting development and one that merchants can appreciate.

The major benefits to PayPal merchants are

  1. Easy to understand visual graphs of your PayPal account
  2. In depth analysis of fees, and taxes
  3. Geographic distribution of your business… i.e. where do your customers live
  4. Abbility to merge multiple eBay accounts in a single view
  5. Goal setting to focus your business
  6. Lots of other flexibility

eBay is making big changes. In my opinion this is good news for everyone that uses the eBay platform. Aside from fee changes here are some of the things you will see changing:

  1. A better finding experience for buyers
  2. Better “Multiple Item Listing system”
  3. Useful tools for sellers to automate their business (Project ECHO)

eBay is making a sincere effort to encourage a fun and profitable platform to do business.

eBay also announced that it is discontinuing the eBay Market Research(EMR) product for eBay users. The customers have various options and eBay has setup an easy upgrade path for user to access terapeak eBay Market Research. terapeak also setup some killer discounts to help the eBay community make a smooth transition from the eBay Market Research (EMR) service to terapeak.

We have always been committed to the eBay community and I appreciate every eBay member. We love to hear from our users and they provide us with great feedback on how to continue to improve our services.

I was looking through my Linkedin profile today and noticed that Will Price is at widgetbox.com. I checked out the site and it is pretty interesting and the team looks smart. I had the opportunity of presenting www.terapeak.com and AERS Inc. businesses to Will a couple of years ago although we actually didn’t need to raise money. They ended up investing in Infopia, which is a great company that we work with as well.

I also noticed that Michael Dearingis listed as a independent board member. We have a few eBay contracts that have his signature on it from when he was still with eBay. It sometimes feels like a small world after all….

When I read this I thought, does anyone else get the shivers? Is this like the titanic where everyone says… “this ship is unsinkable”, and then… bad thngs happen! As an economist you look at the connections between all the variables. I am curious to know how big this house of cards is…

I think facebook is great but you have to question some of the recent decisions that have been made. We have seen the budding social network experiencing some growth pains. Apparently facebook has ruined Christmas . It has not affected my Christmas which will include a nice trip to visit my wife’s family in Mexico! 🙂

Facebook needs to remember that people DO value their privacy. I have been using my Blackberry phone facebook APP which is really awesome and I like it. It gives me something to do while my wife is shopping… it is really easy to write on friends walls and get updates. Great App.

Is there such a thing as a privacy respecting advertising advertising targeting engine? People really like the amazon suggestion system. What makes that system so good? I would love to hear some people write back. What do you think ?

Open Social Networks, Facebook, Myspace … November 2, 2007

I recently attended the web 2.0 summit in San Francisco and it was very interesting. Their were a great many small start-ups present. Given our business is 4 years old and profitable I put myself more in the group of new companies than start-up.

 My observations include the following;

  1. The re-occurring topics for this conference were the open web (open information) and connecting the edge with the mainstream.
  2. Google folks were surprisingly sparse
  3. Microsoft-* were present in numbers although they seemed a bit disassociated from what was happening
  4. Many of the people had no real revenue model but expected that advertising would pay the bills
  5. Their were about 75 women present in a crowd of at least 1000 and probably a lot more

Recently I was reading Wired on-line and they had an article about Google Open Social. It seems logical that for every custom application their should be a counterpart in the open space.

Zuckerberger (Nickname) is a smart guy (No argument there) and the value of his Internet property will increase as long as users and time spent on facebook increase. All the smart people working on this will figure out a way for it to make a lot of money.

Last week I upgraded to a Blackberry 8830 World Edition. WOW this phone is nice. It has a great feel to it. It feels solid and the design seems very well thought out. The screen is bright and the reception is better than my old BB. It has video playback but I am not sure what formats work. The map feature is also very easy to use and is a great feature. Over all I am really enjoying this phone.
