eBay is running a Stellar Seller Sweeps in which it will award winners a $5,000 prize monthly between March 1 and September 30, 2009. To enter, sellers simply tell eBay their success story; they may attach photos or videos. Current entries can be seen here, and more information is online here.

eBay told developers it has updated its services to including two new USPS services for a small, flat-rate box , and new UK and DE shipping services. The USPS introduced the new $4.95 flat-rate box in January.

Reminder: eBay had told sellers they would be required to be in compliance with its new returns policy by mid-March. There hasn't been a reminder since January, however. The policy states that, beginning in mid-March, all listings are required to include handling time and a specified return policy.
