eBay to Start Selling Hotel Rooms?

Apparently eBay wants to become a player in selling hotel rooms by partnering with RateTiger, to allow direct booking on their website and also the ability to manage pricing and availability directly on eBay's booking platform. This would be done in the same way a hotel property would allow rooms booked through other distribution channels such as the GDS and online travel agencies.

eBay currently has around 275 million users worldwide and is said to account for 14% of global ecommerce. Hotel chains already using eBay include Marriott, Renaissance, Hilton, Radisson Blu, Intercontinental and Choice Hotels International. eBay will be featured as a new channel within the RateTiger system.
