eBid’s stance on Live8 tickets justified

Online auction site eBid banned the sale of Live8 tickets from its site prior to Bob Geldof's outburst and feel vindicated by their actions not to allow such listings for auction at eBid

“Since tickets have become available we have removed 75 Live8 auctions”, said Mark Wilkinson, Company Director of eBid. “Furthermore, we welcome eBay’s action to follow our lead.”

The 'David and Goliath' factor between eBid and stock wealthy listed competitors is becoming more evident as eBid continues to climb to the top of the pile. As traffic continues to increase across the site, eBid is now the UK's second favourite online-auction experience.

Background on eBid

Revenues are generated via optional featured extras. eBid is distinct from competitors due to its free listings and no final sale fees, extensive security features and loyal, highly active online auction community.
