New Skype-eBay Ecosystem

October 28th, 2005 · No Comments

Forbes writes:

“New types of services are possible,” said Saul Klein, the VP of Marketing for Skype. He uses this example: Suppose a San Francisco businessman needs to conduct a call with a potential client in Rio. He can search for Portuguese translators on eBay and get a list of them, their location, their rates and their ratings by other users. He selects one and can then instantly conduct a three-way conference call via Skype and pay for the translation service via PayPal.

Who will the winners be? Klein sees four areas where companies will benefit from the Skype-eBay combination: hardware, software applications, voice services and personalized Skype content.
