What would you ask ebay?

by jjgames Thu Sep 02, 2010 1:48 pm

Ebay contacted me about an infographic that would show data on all the stuff sold on ebay in the video game category. If you could ask ebay for one piece of info about the video games sold on their site what would it be?

Examples - What is the most expensive game ever sold on ebay? How many games sell every minute? What is the most popular game? How many game sell on all the international sites? How many copies of Star Craft II sold in the first week? etc.

We can pretty much ask anything. They said they can't guarantee they will be able to give the answers (some stuff they might not know), but this is the best chance to find out what you have always wanted from ebay.

I like this question. I hope they answer it or something pretty close to it.

This.


Ask them why they won't allow us to charge enough to actually cover packaging, handling and shipping.

Fuck my question, this is the one to ask. I hate selling any sort of combo packs (ie. a game and its sequel) on eBay because I can't put in more than eBay allows which isn't enough.

How large of a used game market is there on eBay? How does it compare to Gamestop's sales?

Tell me if what I'm buying will cause taxes or other costs if shipped to my area.
Thanks everyone...

Aks them why they made the stupid move of dividing games into 'games' and 'vintage games'. It just makes it a pain in the ass to sort by category because there's no hard and fast rule of what's vintage and what's not. So if I want to look for snes games 60% of them are in the regular games category, and the other 40% are in the vintage category.
