Darple, eBay and Bidding Without Fear - Good Model for eBay Sellers

Darple is an eBay-like Web site that allows bidding on multiple items.. without buying multiple items. When you win an item, your other bids for similar items are automatically withdrawn. It's pretty cool. My local paper wrote an article about it this morning. eBay should be doing this. They'd get a lot more activity, and pricing would reach realistic levels quickly because serious buyers would be able to rapidly place bids without worrying about ordering multiple items. As a buyer, you wouldn't have to spend so much time surfing eBay itself and mulling over choices. You'd just search, bid and wait for everything to shake out.

Do you think a feature like this would boost or erode pricing levels on eBay? That's the most interesting question, I think.

Please comment below and let me know what you think. Thanks.
