eBay announced it will allow sellers to include links to off-eBay websites after all. The company had announced its intention to ban almost all outside linking in mid-May, and earlier this month it had delayed implementation of the policy. On Thursday, eBay's Senior Director of Trust & Safety wrote on eBay's announcement board eBay would leave its Links Policy as is.

eBay has been making many changes to its site this year, and this is the latest modification to planned changes.
