Not so much. Amazon had auctions up until recently. They didn't do very well.

Really? I didn't know that. I figured since eBay is trying to get a slice of Amazon's pie, it would be ironic if Amazon turned around and promoted amazon auctions.

There goes that theory lol

Yahoo tried, and Amazon tried.. they both struggled, and eventually closed their auction sites. The feebay giant eats up all and any competitor.

Yeah, everyone said it would be the death of eBay when Amazon launched their auctions. I actually used their auction site in the early days, but they never really attracted that critical mass of buyers needed to make the format work, and everyone just listed items at their regular selling prices for opening bids.

Speaking of which, how is your auction site coming Tym? You mentioned it might be up and running by now. Do you have a url where we could sneak a peek?
