This should remove a major barrier for any software developers who are interested in innovating and growing businesses on the eBay Platform, but are unsure about the costs. This change will allow developers to explore new business models as they create solutions to enhance the experience of buyers and sellers on eBay.
We're excited by the level of innovation and ingenuity that all of the entrants demonstrated. The eBay Developer Challenge 2006 winners offer buyers and sellers the ability to access the eBay marketplace from wherever they might be, extending the eBay platform in ways previously unimagined. They are all great examples of how innovative developers and affiliates can create viable businesses using eBay Web Services while taking the eBay user experience to a whole new level.
