Re: Yahoo Auctions Closing Down [re: bluepennylady]  

You're welcome - I wondered if a lot of people saw it. I saw it reading a NY Post on line article and also later I saw AuctionBytes had a story too. Here is the article very short and sweet:

Yahoo to Close US, Canadian Auction Sites

May 04, 2007

Yahoo announced Friday morning that the company has decided to close the Yahoo US and Canada Auctions sites. It said it will continue to operate its international auction businesses, including its auction properties in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan.

Yahoo Auctions will no longer accept listings as of June 3, 2007, on the US and Canadian sites, which will close on June 16, 2007. The last day to bid or buy is June 16, 2007, and users will be able to access their accounts through October 29, 2007.

Listings will not auto re-submit after June 3, 2007, and as of May 4th, Auctions Scheduler and Auto Resubmit features will no longer be available.

Buyer Protection Plan claims must be submitted no later than 60 days after buyers have been declared the winning bidder for an auction.

Meanwhile, The New York Post said Friday that Microsoft has intensified its pursuit of a deal with Yahoo to acquire the company
Hope it helps. You're right all of those eBayers that went to Overstock and then to Yahoo will be coming back to eBay. So there will be lots of people looking for buyers. I stopped on Yahoo about 3 months ago as customers were getting few and far between and even though there was no charge it was foolish to tie up time and product there.

I feel that if those of us that are on eBay now and are working smartest and using our templates and material to the best of our ability should have a foot up on the roaring crowd heading toward eBay.
