According to a message posted on the Yahoo Auctions site at http://auctions.yahoo.com/, the service will no longer accept new auction lists from June 3. The last day to bid or buy goods and services on the auction site is June 16.Source: CNN.
Yahoo officials said last week they planned to shut down Yahoo Photos, its first-generation photo storage site, in June. They asked users to move to Yahoo's Web 2.0 photo sharing site, Flickr.
The latest closure applies to Yahoo's U.S. and Canadian auction sites. Still open for business are Yahoo auction sites in three Asian markets - Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.
"After careful consideration, we have decided to close down our Yahoo U.S. and Canada Auction sites to better serve our valued customers through other Yahoo properties," the U.S. auctions site told visitors on Tuesday.
Yahoo continues to offering a range of U.S. e-commerce sites, including ones for shopping, auto sales, classified advertising and small business.
