eBay said it will make two changes to the way Store inventory listings appear in regular eBay.com search results. Currently, Store listings appear below search results only when a search returns 30 or fewer auction-style and fixed-price items. Going forward, eBay will show up to 50 Store listings in the expansion box, and it will display gallery images for those items as well. eBay said it had been running tests since November to find the optimal experience for buyers.
