New safeguards are coming in February to keep eBay a fair marketplace for sellers
Reporting buyers who violate policies or misuse the system will be faster and easier. Starting in October, a more accessible and enhanced reporting hub will make it easy for you to contact eBay directly to report buyers in violation of eBay policies.
A new Top Rated Plus seal, coming in September, will highlight listings from Top Rated sellers with 1-day handling and 14-day or longer money-back returns. It will replace the current Top Rated seller badge. Top Rated sellers will continue to receive recognition of their status on their Feedback profile page.
Maximize the power of eBay Fast ‘N Free. The eBay Fast ‘N Free logo on listings is delivering a solid increase in sales over listings without it. Starting the week of September 24, you’ll be able to check your seller dashboard to see the impact of eBay Fast ‘N Free on your sales.
More selling power for your listings
More selling power for electronics. New way to shop for popular products coming to more categories—listing with the eBay catalog required.
Boost sales with multi-variation listings. Coming soon! A new feature will let you easily combine individual listings of different variations of an item—such as color and size—into one listing.
Ending Auction-style listings when they have a bid can lead to buyer frustration. Starting October 1, to protect the spirit and integrity of auctions, a fee will be charged for ending an Auction-style listing early after there’s been a bid.
More communication power in My eBay Messages. Starting in late September, you’ll be able to upload up to five pictures via My Messages to help close the sale. No need to share your personal email address or use a third party photo sharing service to send buyers additional photos of an item.
Category and item specifics updates. As always, changes to categories and item specifics are included with the rest of seller updates. Updates are coming in many categories and a few categories are being eliminated—find out if your listings are affected.
