Marketplace Research by Terapeak Offered as Alternative to eBay Marketplace Research

    VICTORIA, Aug. 18 /CNW/ - Terapeak, an eBay Certified Provider, today
announced that Marketplace Research by Terapeak is being offered as an
alternative for eBay Marketplace Research, which eBay plans to retire as of
September 15th, 2008. Available to all existing eBay Marketplace Research
subscribers, and to all eBay users going forward, the tool will be accessible
from the eBay website, and Terapeak will provide dedicated customer support.
    Fred Speckeen, CEO of Terapeak/AERS, says, "The transfer of research
responsibilities to Terapeak reflects our longstanding business relationship
with eBay, and our company's commitment to providing the best market research
product possible. Although most eBay sellers know us for our Terapeak product,
AERS was the first licensee of eBay data, and also provides e-commerce
analytics based on eBay data to the larger Fortune 1000 community. We are
proud and excited to be invited to offer Terapeak as an alternative to eBay
Marketplace Research."
    "Millions of eBay transactions are analyzed and processed by AERS systems
each day," says AERS CTO Andrew Sukow. "We continue to improve our processes,
our systems and the Terapeak product in order to help eBay sellers maximize
their profit potential." Marketplace Research by Terapeak will provide
important and useful research for eBay sellers based on completed eBay
listings. Terapeak plans to extend the range of reports and features that were
available via the eBay tool. These new features include a greater data
history, including up to two years of category trends, seller-specific
searches, and dedicated customer support.
    "We are pleased to join with Terapeak to offer our customers an
alternative service for eBay Marketplace Research," said Laura Della Torre,
Senior Manager, Seller Platform at eBay. "We have been working with Terapeak
as a Certified Provider for several years and believe they are well suited to
provide a research product that meets the needs of our customers."
