EBay adds RSS to stores, introduces research tool

EBay has added RSS support for eBay Stores, and introduced a research tool to help buyers and sellers make better transaction decisions.

EBay has rolled out RSS-based content syndication capabilities to all eBay Stores, letting buyers subscribe to feeds from specific stores and that way receive new information about items for sale, the California company announced this week.

Owners interested in activating this RSS capability on their eBay store can find more information on how to do it here.

The RSS (Real Simple Syndication) button will appear on the lower left hand corner of the store, where buyers can click on it and add the feed to the RSS reader of their choice, according to the announcement, penned by Arturo Zacarias, eBay's senior product manager, platform and new technologies, and posted Thursday in the general announcement section of the company's Web site.

Also featured in that announcements section is a new service called eBay Marketplace Research, designed to help buyers and sellers track transaction trends on eBay, so that they can make more informed decisions.

Specifically, Marketplace Research can provide buyers and sellers with average item prices, show top keyword searches by category or related keywords, create charts illustrating transaction trends and deliver data on completed sales over the past 90 days, according to the announcement, posted by John Bodine, an eBay product marketing manager.

Marketplace Research is subscription based and comes in three tiers, starting at US$2.99 for two days of access. More information can be found at http://pages.ebay.com/marketplace_research/index.html?ssPageName=CMDV:AB

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
