…going, going…almost gone. Yahoo! Auctions is folding up the tent next month.
Wait a minute. Yahoo had auctions?
The giant that is eBay simply could not be slain..or even wounded by the competition from Yahoo! Auctions which is wrapping up its run over the next few weeks.
Yahoo was hoping to parlay the company’s brand name and resources into an auction portal that would rival eBay but it hasn’t panned out. Thousands of sports cards and memorabilia items remain available on the site, but many are ‘Buy it Now’ type listings with set prices. Trying to beat eBay on pricing wasn’t the right move.
The Motley Fool reports the site is still up and running and has a plan in place to ease buyers and sellers out of the auction game in the coming weeks.
