Ebay to offer price match on over 50,000 items

Ebay is going to take a run at Amazon and Walmart with a new price match guarantee on over 50,000 items. While all items available on ebay won't have this guarantee, any of the ebay deals that are offered will match the lowest price of their competitors. Ebay was once the go-to spot for the best prices but thanks to the huge success of Amazon and Walmart online they've taken a back bench and this is probably a set in the right direction to lure customers back. TechCrunch has all the details.

As Amazon and Walmart continue their battle to become the world’s largest retailer, another longtime rival in the e-commerce business, eBay, is now stepping up its game as well. The company this morning announced a new Price Match Guarantee for over 50,000 items across its site – promising that it will have the best deal online, or it will match the lowest price of a competitor.

The move is a significant effort on eBay’s part to ensure that it doesn’t lose customers to Amazon, Walmart and other online stores as the market consolidates behind the industry’s major players.

However, only select items are available for this Price Match Guarantee, eBay says.
