"Skype Me" baby one more time

Skype has been in the news a lot recently. In the past few months, the company has added features that supported Intel-only processors (and was later served with subpoenas by AMD in regards to the matter), added 24-hour translators and offered free land line calling within the United States and Canada. Now, Skype is taking its relationship with eBay to the next level.

eBay today announced that it will be adding a "Skype Me" button to some of its category listings. Using the button would allow buyers to get into direct contact with sellers either by voice or by chat in real-time. eBay is hoping to have the feature incorporated within 14 category listings starting June 19th. The categories targeted include GPS devices, automobiles, and real estate -- three categories which could benefit from increased communication between buyer and seller.

eBay CEO Meg Whitman says that this latest expansion of Skype is a part of the company's "Power of Three" strategy. "Each of these businesses is incredibly powerful on its own. eBay is No. 1 in e-commerce, PayPal is No. 1 in online payments and Skype is No. 1 in voice communications. Together, however, we think these three businesses can make even greater things happen."

Speaking of eBay and PayPal, it looks as though eBay may be having some stiff competition in the online payment arena from Google. DailyTech reported a few days ago that Google’s GBuy payment service will take direct aim at PayPal.
