Just got the email. Clearly eBay has a massive advantage in terms of reach and users. Does this "price match" change your thinking about where to sell?
I really like Strandberg multi scale.
Great feedback. I appreciate that Reverb is building a music-centric service, has entertaining videos and editorial content, is clearly built by musicians, and as a digital product designer myself, I appreciate that you continually update your products with great features, UX fixes, and clearly pay attention to how people are using your service.Hey guys, So I just wanted to chime in here as I figure some of you might be interested in our perspective on this. Obviously, we're aware of this change and it does raise some interesting questions, but fundamentally, imitation is the greatest form of flattery, as they say
It's worth noting that as of now, this change, at least from what we've seen, just includes their general Guitar and Bass category -- which is separate from vintage guitars and a slew of other gear categories. Of course, that very well could change to include everything, but at the same time, they've also lowered their fees to match ours in the past and have always reverted pretty soon thereafter.
More importantly though, at Reverb our absolute core motivation has very little to do with ebay and is instead totally guided by building cool technology and features, and offering better service and overall experience than anyone else. Ebay toying with their fees isn't going to change that, and if anything, it's just more motivation to build the best website possible. To that end, if you all have any feedback on what we should build next or how we could be doing better, we always welcome it. Feel free to reply here or DM me anytime. Thanks!
