eBay has been sending warning emails to sellers informing them that their listings contain contact information, which is now prohibited. eBay today announced it has changed its User Agreement to make it clearer that it will charge sellers commission fees on listings where the seller provides such information. That means sellers could pay a commission fee for a listing that they haven’t sold.
There are several major issues of concern for sellers, which we explain on the EcommerceBytes Blog.
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 September 19, 2017 for new users and on November 1, 2017 for all other users. The updated User Agreement was posted on eBay.com on September 19, 2017.
The key updates to the eBay User Agreement is that we’ve made it clearer how we address attempts to bypass our policy on offers to buy or sell outside eBay. Sellers who violate this policy may be charged a final value fee for the applicable item, even if it doesn’t sell.
Thank you for being a part of the eBay community.
