EBay plans to lay off about 60 employees as part of an internal restructuring plan first announced in a Sept. 21 post on its eBay Ink blog. The blog posting described the overhaul, but did not mention the layoffs.

The majority of the job cuts will come from the company’s product and technology areas, a company spokesman says.

The initial September blog post also noted that Stephanie Tilenius, eBay`s global product and North America head, planned to leave her post. That position will not be filled as Lorrie Norrington, president of eBay marketplaces, assumes direct responsibility for eBay`s North America operations in an effort to streamline and simplify the company’s management structure.

eBay has roughly 15,000 employees worldwide.
