AuctionBytes is conducting a survey of readers to determine the effects of eBay's new "Store in Core" initiative. eBay.com eliminated separate Store Inventory format listings, converting them to regular fixed-price listings on March 30. The survey asks sellers what effect, if any, the influx of new listings in core has had on their sales since the conversion. The survey also looks at various factors that may be influencing any changes in sales.

eBay described the Store in Core change as follows: "Starting March 30, there will be one Fixed Price format on eBay. Listings in the current Stores Inventory Format will automatically become regular Fixed Price listings with the same duration and appear with all other Fixed Price listings in eBay search results."

Online sellers who list on the eBay.com website can take the survey on this page on SurveyMonkey.com. AuctionBytes will publish the results in a future newsletter.
