eBay will begin increasing cross-border exposure of collectibles as part of a test that is expected to last until early next year. Eligible listings in the US will appear on eBay UK site by default, and similarly, items listed in the UK will be shown on the eBay.com site. eBay will limit the testing to items in which the seller accepts PayPal and are listed in the Collectibles, Antiques, Stamps, Coins, Art, or Pottery & Glass categories. Sellers in the US must specify global or UK shipping options and pricing to help buyers see the full cost of items. Sellers must also have a minimum of 100 feedback ratings with at least 98% positive.
