eBay Grows New Ideas in Technology Garden
By: eBay Inc. Staff
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eBay (Nasdaq:EBAY) is planting the seeds of fresh ideas in its new “Garden by eBay,” an area on eBay.com that will allow eBay Community members to test new features and offer input on suggested improvements and changes. Announced today, the new eBay Garden will encourage eBay users to contribute to the growth of initial concepts (seeds) to fully “grown,” ready-to-launch products and features.
Christopher Payne, eBay vice president of search: “The new Garden by eBay represents a new collaborative conversation with the eBay community—a chance to listen to their thoughts on upcoming features, and to bring them closer to our own innovation process. And by seeding the Garden with streamlined search, we’re asking for the community’s input on improving one of the most important areas of eBay.com.”
Dane Glasgow, eBay vice president of engineering: “We’re asking the eBay community for as much feedback as possible on the test features in the new Garden by eBay so we can design and build better site improvements. Our streamlined search started with a blank canvas and the chance to put forward a simpler, more efficient search experience. With the community’s help, we’ll make great strides along the path to improve search on eBay.”
