eBay misspellings lead to bargains
So I was amused to learn that there are now a few free websites designed to help eBay shoppers capitalize on misspellings. Today's Wall Street Journalreports (subscription required) that Auction Bloopers, Missing-Auctions and Typo Buddy all provide free services that will search for various common misspellings.
These sites probably help sellers as much as buyers by increasing the audience so that that "Van Go" original doesn't sell for 93 cents.
Of course if your "Typo Buddy" search turns up a "Lewie Vitong" bag, it's probably not such a bargain.
