Tomahawk, WI 11/26/2013 (BasicsMedia) –  The biggest threat that eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY)’s top executives have to contend with is the fact that it may lose its largest sellers. This fear is not limited only to losing its top sellers, but all sellers in general. This is quite understandable because EBAY makes money and collects revenue from the fees it charges to sellers, especially those who find buyers for their products and services on eBay. One would ordinarily expect that eBay’s fear is that it will lose its sellers to other major corporations such as Amazon and Google, yet this is not the case.

Just as it is with all the other companies in various industries, eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) is not the sole provider of the kind of services it offers to customers across the world. This field is replete with many examples of companies that are as dominant in providing clients with a platform through which to by and sell different products and services. There are a number of startups in this industry, and these are the ones causing a lot of headache to eBay and other similar companies. Currently, one may not appreciate such a scenario since the company’s stock is doing quite well in the financial market.

It seems that eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) has recovered from its low of $10 per share that was reported sometime in 2009. The company’s stock is now past the $58 per share, and from all likelihoods, it could surpass this figure as well and go on to set new records. However, as it is with every other company that has enjoyed a period of complete domination over its peers the way eBay has done, the company must plan for the future. Active eBay users have now gone beyond 100 million, and this figure is expected to keep growing, unless something drastic happens.

People love eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) because they consider it to be reliable and effective. It provides them with the best platform to get the best products and services at affordable rates, something they would probably never be able to do otherwise. Furthermore, now that we are heading into the holiday season, eBay expects its sales to keep improving and doing much better than it has in the past. The holiday season is often quite good for retailers, and eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) is one of the best and biggest in this regard, and expects sales to improve by as much as 30% during this period.

A number of factors have enabled eBay to thrive the way it has done in the recent days. Just as these factors have been very good for eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY), new companies have the same to say about them. A few rivals that eBay needs to contend with lest it loses a big chunk of its customers to include Etsy and Bonanza. Right now, eBay may be forgiven for thinking that the two companies, as well as a myriad others, do not present much of a threat. The truth is that they are still small, but now that Internet has emerged as the biggest market, they will grow exponentially soon.
