Male Sellers on eBay Have an Edge Over Women, Study Finds
Successful sellers on eBay know certain things matter: item description, appealing photos, strong seller ratings and, of course, price.

Now, a study published Friday in the journal Science Advances suggested another factor might make a subtle difference: whether the seller is a man or woman. Using data supplied by the company, researchers analyzed some 630,000 auction transactions on eBay in the United States and reported that, on average, when men and women with equal selling reputations sold the same products, women received lower prices than men.
The race study was an experiment - i.e., the products were placed for the purpose of study, it wasn't an examination of real transactions - but the results were the same.
