Thanks to Dave's pointer on, I'm getting some helpful comments on my eBay wish. In particular Chris Woods in the comments to yesterday's post pointed me to the eBay developer page. There they describe a planned program for opening up their APIs to businesses. With the lowest class membership at $1000 annually with additional charges of $6.50 per 1000 API calls, my collecting hobby gets pretty expensive. I need something more in my price range to start up an index for particular types of collectibles. It's more of a curiousity than a moneymaker. I'm certainly not opposed to spending money for access, but after seeing the cost I definitely felt the sticker shock. They are clearly not pricing it for the hobbyist space. It appears that they've been planning this for a while. I wonder what their response to Amazon's latest move will be... Time to start composing my next eBay letter...
