Mini Case: eBay is getting complaints from customers that the site doesn't have enough product selection. To increase product selection eBay runs a promotion and decides to waiver the listing fees for all sellers. eBay's earns revenue from the listing fees and as a % of sales transaction and the bulk of revenue comes as a commission over sales transactions. The promotion instead of increasing the revenue results in a drop in revenue for eBay. Explain

Ebay has actually tried this a few times. The listing fee keeps auctions that have no chance of selling off the site. If there is no listing fee, ebay loses that revenue and still only sees the same amount of auctions close with a sale. Buyers also tire of looking through a glut of items up for sale that they aren't interested in. Less

I asked a few questions about what percent of revenue comes from each of the revenue stream. Came up with a few recommendations on running a more focused promotion campaign to incentive sellers with the right kind of products. This would ensure that promotion budget is optimized and also help buyers see only the kind of products that they were interested in purchasing. Less

Let's keep this equation, Revenue = Listing fee + % commision * (orders * Avg order value) i'm assuming the hypothesis of removing the listing fee is to enable more products are introduced into the market and hence likely more orders. This could lead to the following outcome the # of orders are going up, but the AOV is dropping - It's possible that people are starting to sell items which they might have not before, because the listing fee eats into their margins.

3 metrics on how to measure success on a software solution that has just been implemented in the page

3 Answers

1) # of sales before and after, obviously 2) click-through rate before and after (it tells me how intuitive the UI is for the user, as well as if there is a bug at a certain point, causing a dropoff in the CTR) 3) # of visits to the help page/FAQ page before and after (it tells me that the user might be unfamiliar with the UI) Less

The question is too vague, we should emphasize that the metrics are driven by the product goal. Perhaps adding an example from your experience might be good too. On high level without clear understanding of the feature that was developed on the page 1.) # of users visiting this page and who have seen this new section 2.) # of users who used any call to action in the component developed 3.) # of users who might have dropped off after certain actions. Other metrics (esp. if the page is critical) could be - 4.) Page load times with the module (it could be huge if the section in the page has multiple service calls for example) Less
