Many eBay customers brag about great deals, and a new study shows they have a lot to brag about.Two independent researchers at the University of Maryland found that eBay buyers saved $7 billion that they might have been ready to pay in 2003.

The study uncovered a big gap between what a bidder was willing to pay for an item and the final bid.

Later this week, eBay is expected to announce changes to its site that will benefit sellers and buyers.

The company wants to make it easier for consumers to find items they wish to purchase.
