eBay is launching a developer program called Project Echo which will for the first time enable third-party developers to add functions to the tools eBay sellers use to manage their listings.eBay's Selling Manager is used by 700,000 eBay sellers to manage listings and customer information, and until now all the its functions were developed within eBay itself. Under the new program, outside developers will be able to create tools for Selling Manager, and merchants will be able to choose the ones most helpful to their businesses.

While even an alpha version of the program is not expected to be publicly available this year, at least two eBay developers will show off applications at this week's eBay developer converence. Hosted Support will demonstrate a CRM application, and Terapeak will show a market research application that matches recent market data to listings that might be affected.Washington Post, Computerworld
