I have a feeling that eBay (in common with nearly all other companies) will not allow you direct access to their database for security reasons.

Companies are funny about things like that: They seem to feel that confidential information should remain confidential and giving it to you violates that (and quite a few laws as well). They also, strangely seem to think that if they give total strangers access to their information the strangers might:

1) Use the info for the strangers' benefit, not eBay.
2) Annoy the heck out of their existing customer base.
3) Provide a means by which the strangers could alter or destroy information.

As a result, the chances of your finding a legitimate source of this information is about the same as mine of voted Miss World.

I get the feeling that you aren't going to get many sales: that kind of analysis is kinda simple, and most companies that are serious about selling will already have it built into their MIS.
Still, it's your time, your money.
Good luck!
Ebay has an api, just like Amazon. Start reading from here http://developer.ebay.com/common/api/[^]

There is a way to get commission if you sell their products. But there are rules where you can't cache the information and definitely not direct access of the data. Everything has to be used with the API.

Thanks Espen Harlinn
You cannot get at EBays database directly. It's completely insulated from the Internet.

If you want their data, you'll have to contact them about how to get it. I do not think you're going to get a live feed of every transaction that goes on at EBay. But, I seriously doubt they will give you any of their data.

Then I recommend to you to read the basics of .NET, I understand you don't want ebay's DB, but you want to create a site like eBay.
In the basics of .NET will teach you how to connect to a database

If you haven't figured out how to connect to a database in .NET yet, or anything else for that matter, you're really not going to write anything good enough to sell to them. You might be able to sell consulting services to them for data analysis and methodologies, but you're showing that you don't have to technical know-how to write code for this stuff.
