EBay to cease partner auctions

In Brief / INTERNET

April 16, 2008|From Times Wire Services

EBay Inc. said it would discontinue by year-end the section of its site that allows users to participate in live auctions hosted by other companies.

The company said the move would not materially affect its business -- though millions of users patronize EBay's partner auction houses.

A spokesman for San Jose-based EBay said maintaining and improving the 7-year-old Live Auctions platform fell outside the firm's current focus on boosting listings, improving buyers' experiences and making the site safer from fraud.
