The International Reach Of Ebay For U.S. Buyers
AbstractData was collected from the U.S. eBay site for the categories of animation art and Steiff teddy bears. It was found that U.S. consumers bought items from sellers in 13 countries whereas slightly over 20% of sellers were not in the U.S. In general the outcomes of the auctions (final price, number of bids, and whether the item sold or not) were not affected by the country of the seller. For Steiff teddy bears, auctions by sellers from Germany and Austria had more bids (as compared to U.S. sellers) and for Germany there was also an increase in the probability that an item sold. On the other hand, for animation art, Hong Kong sellers were penalized in the sense that there were fewer bids on their auctions and the probability of an item being sold was reduced. They were not penalized however in the final auction price. Presented at 13th International Conference, Vaasa, Finland, May 2003
