eBay signed a deal with Chicago-based Eppraisals.com to offer appraisal services to the auction giant's members. Eppraisals will provide potential bidders an assessment of items listed on eBay and will appraise merchandise for sellers interested in listing items on eBay. Eppraisals will charge between $10 and $20 for its services, which will debut on eBay on Monday.
Eppraisals teamed up with Yahoo last year to offer appraisal services to Yahoo's auction members. But that deal expired last month. Eppraisals and eBay executives declined to give details on the length or financial arrangements of their agreement.
