eBay is altering its User Agreement, which goes into effect for existing users on June 20th. The news came on the same day eBay announced its Summer Seller Update, which you can read about in the EcommerceBytes Blog (link below). eBay published the following announcement about its new UA:
At eBay, we strive to make our policies clear and our services easy to use. As part of that commitment, we’re announcing some changes to the eBay User Agreement.
Our updated User Agreement will take effect on May 9, 2017 for new users and on June20, 2017 for all other users. The updated User Agreement was posted on eBay.com on May 9, 2017.
Key updates to the eBay User Agreement:
We’ve made it clearer how we address attempts to bypass our policy on Offers to buy or sell outside eBay.
We may scan and block member-to-member messages sent through our platform to prevent fraud or violations of our policies.
We may automatically renew your fixed-price listings unless your listing sells out or you cancel your listing.
If you use our product catalog information in your listing, we may update this information in your listing when we update our catalog.
We’ve made some changes to our company structure that are reflected in the eBay entities you are contracting with when using eBay.
We’ve set up a discussion board to answer questions on this topic.
