eBay accuses Amazon of illegally poaching merchant for its marketplace

The competition between third-party sellers marketplaces is getting fierce, and now eBay has accused Amazon of poaching its own independent sellers through its own messaging system, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal. eBay sent a cease and desist letter to Amazon yesterday, the report states, after the company discovered more than 50 Amazon sales representatives had sent more than 1,000 messages to eBay sellers trying to convince them to bring their business to Amazon Marketplace.

“We can confirm that we have uncovered an unlawful and troubling scheme on the part of Amazon to solicit eBay sellers to move to Amazon’s platform,” eBay told the WSJ in a statement. “We have demanded that Amazon end its unlawful activity and will take the appropriate steps, as needed, to protect eBay.” In a statement given to The Verge, an Amazon spokesperson said, “We are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations.”

The heated competition for 3rd-party sellers is a product of both a general shift in retail and e-commerce and the increasing importance of catering to small and independent businesses that do a majority, if not all, of their sales online. Increasingly, consumers are purchasing items directly from sellers through marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. That’s because companies have discovered they can get off the ground more easily by launching entire ventures exclusively online.

Those businesses are funded through crowd-funding campaigns sometimes, and often they are built specifically to sell direct thanks to manufacturing relationships in China — Chinese consumer electronics brand Anker built its business on Amazon Marketplace — or the equipment necessary to produce items, like jewelry or clothing, at home and then sell it on a platform like Etsy.

In turn, tech firms have built out their respective platforms to be as accommodating to sellers as possible, as a result of the more lucrative cut those platforms receive from each sale, the WSJ notes. eBay has shifted from being a place where people sell old junk or rare collectibles to a place where businesses can thrive selling new or used goods. Amazon too has built its Marketplace as a growing arm of its retail business, where it can charge sellers for shipping, marketing, and other aspects of the operation.

In this case, however, it looks like Amazon was using less-than-savory tactics — tactics very similar to a controversial Uber poaching campaign against Lyft from a few years back — to court sellers away from one of its competitors. According to the report, Amazon sales reps used tricks to get around eBay’s detection methods, including putting dashes in between each letter of the word “Amazon” and spelling out email addresses and other contact info so as to avoid alerting eBay to when the sales rep was trying to take a conversation outside its messaging platform.

"An Airplane Without Wings" - A Glimpse of The First Hyperloop.

A full-size Hyperloop capsule designed to carry passengers at 1,000 kilometres per hour has been unveiled.
A glimpse of the first hyperloop

It was unveiled in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain, very close to where it was constructed at the aerospace facilities of Airtificial, a partner of HyperloopTT.

Dubbed an "airplane without wings," the Hyperloop's aim is to permanently disrupt how we travel long distances. A journey from Los Angeles to Las Vegas can now take nothing more than 20 minutes.

At a length of 32 metres, the Hyperloop capsule would form part of a longer train that could in record time speed across a country.

The first full-scale Hyperloop capsule is made out of dual-layer smart composite material and is named "Quintero One".

Responding to questions concerning safety, the HyperloopTT team stressed the capsule's security. They also laid emphasis on the new material it's made from and the protective double-layer.

"Today we have unveiled a new type of transportation vessel built with an industry high percentage of composite, which makes the Hyperloop capsule perhaps the safest transportation vehicle in the world," said Rafael Contreras, the company's co-founder and chairman.
"In just five years we have solved and improved upon all of the technology needed for Hyperloop with our new levitation system, vacuum pumps, batteries, and smart composites," CEO Dirk Ahlborn added.
"This capsule will be a part of one of the most efficient transportation systems ever made."
