[REBOL] eBay manager program Re:(3)

From: jackseay:earthlink at: 24-Sep-2000 2:52

This would be a program to manage a buyers' or sellers' own auction transactions. There are already programs that do some of what I was suggesting. I don't think it would be in competition with eBay, but would make it more profitable for sellers and save time for buyers, thus increasing eBay's business. Everybody wins. It might not be a good idea to call it ReBay, though. Remember Lava? But, some research would be prudent before proceeding. [allen--rebolforces--com] said at [REBOL] eBay manager program Re:(2).
