"EBay, 3 Mayıs 2007 tarihinde Türkiye'nin en büyük elektronik ticaret platformlarından GittiGidiyor.com'a azınlık hissedarı olarak ortak oldu. Yatırım ile Türkiye, eBay'in faaliyet gösterdiği 37. ülke oldu."
So Ebay finally bought a piece of the Turkish auction site, gitti gidiyor (which literally means "going, gone!) back in May.. Here's the official announcement in Turkish. There's already a bustling forum called "iyibey" where new Turkish users can learn the ropes of how to register and bid and pay for items.. But the biggest problem so far? CUSTOMS. I have personal stories about this topic.. (for later)
In case anyone wondered, the Ebay badge on the left (the one that scrolls products every 8 seconds) is a widget which features my own personal listings on Ebay. Pretty nice. And if you scroll down you can play PacMan. Try it.. I'm about to list another of my father's hand made kanun instruments. More later..
