eBay drops Microsoft's Passport and .NET alerts support

Posted on Thursday, December 30 2004 @ 17:50:04 CET by

Ebay, the online auction site, has notified its members that by late January it will drop support for Microsoft's Passport and .NET Alerts. Once this takes place the Microsoft Passport button will be replaced with links to a page with more information.

Users who still want to receive these alerts will need to sign up for eBay's own mobile phone alerts or use the eBay Toolbar, which will display alerts when the users's auction is about to end, is outbid, or is the winner.

Recently it already became more difficult to sign up for alerts through Microsoft's .NET services since the pages containing this info were buried more deeply on eBay's site.

Microsoft said it was disappointed with eBay's decision to drop support for their services, but that they will continue to push their .NET framework as a better method for business-to-consumer interaction.
