has been working on a new way of presenting information to online shoppers, perhaps in an effort to push back against
Debra Borchardt spoke to Mark Carges, CTO of eBay, who said the company began working on another version of the "Feed" immediately after launching the first version last year.
The company has been working with curators to build different collections for the Web site.
Borchardt also interviewed Michael Phillips Moskowitz, chief curator and editorial director at eBay, who said the company needs to create collections, which range from furniture to fashion, that will "leap through the screen" and really get consumers to take notice.
The company also allows for different delivery options, such as at-store pickup and same day-delivery. Or, customers can have purchased at a time that is convenient for them.
Although the financial terms have not yet been completed with the collection holders, Carges said that eBay can simply act as a middleman between merchants and consumers, allowing for better and more convenient service.
