Oodle and EBay Classifieds team up
by Sharon Hill
23 Dec 2010EBay Classifieds and Oodle have teamed up for classifieds, with no money changing hands. It's just a "We'll post your classifieds if you'll post ours" arrangement, which makes excellent sense for both. We talked to Martin Herbst, general manager of EBay Classifieds US and Oodle's CEO Craig Donato. Both say the same thing - it's a win-win. Certainly, it's a win for buyers and sellers as well...
