eBay Changes How It Communicates with Sellers
By: Ina Steiner
eBay sent an email to sellers today informing them of "Updates to eBay's seller communications." It will now send a weekly email each Tuesday informing sellers of promotions, product changes, tips, changes, and more.
In addition, it will send a monthly email on the first Wednesday of each month that will include sellers' sales and performance data as well as guidance and inspirational stories. (eBay will send the first monthly newsletter on April 20.)
At the same time, eBay will no longer send individual reminders, promotions, announcements and newsletters.
Some sellers might prefer the change, but it's hard to understand how that would "make it easier for you to manage - and grow - your business" as eBay stated in the letter.
"This is just one of the many changes we're making in the months ahead," it advised (so apparently there will be lots of news in those weekly newsletters).
What do you think of the change in how eBay communicates with sellers? With all the email to keep up with, do you prefer one weekly roundup of changes and announcement, or do you prefer to get news from eBay as soon as possible?
