Having launched a same-day home delivery trial, eBay (EBAY -2.3%) is now experimenting with home pick-up for Marketplaces sales. Vendors using the service have sale items picked up by an eBay employee who takes them to a "selling assistant." The assistant, in turn, sells the items on eBay's site for a 25% cut. eBay is also trialing a service where users drop off a bag of clothing and electronics at a mall, and are offered a set price for the bag by a seller following evaluation.
