eBay unveiled several new methods of communication for U.S. users of its auction service at the eBay Live Conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday night. Among them is a plan to integrate the Skype VoIP service into its auctions, along with a new blog, wiki, and alerts service. An option to add a "Skype Me" button will be available beginning June 19 in 14 categories across the service. Users in those categories would gain the extra option in the "Ask a seller a question" section of the auction. Through Skype, either voice or text chat would be possible. |
