eBay will unveil tomorrow how it plans to integrate Skype's VoIP service into its core U.S. auction business:

Newsweek magazine reported on Sunday that the company plans to encourage eBay sellers to embed Skype calling links into auction pages in a few product categories, including cars, real estate and diamond solitaire rings.
