eBay executive Jim Ambach said eBay will send invitations to eligible PowerSellers to enroll in its new Expanded Seller Protection program. He said the launch of the new program has been delayed until mid-March. Ambach gave the news to attendees of last week's IMA conference.

eBay initially announced the Expanded Seller Protection program on January 29th and said it would launch in February. The program gives extra protection to eBay PowerSellers (PayPal will no longer require that PowerSellers ship to confirmed addresses for items sold on eBay, there will no longer be an annual $5,000 limit on seller protection for PowerSellers, and coverage will be extended internationally).

Editor's Note: Article edited 3/11/08 to show correct program name, "Expanded Seller Protection."
