Three Missing eBay Features - Where Did They Go?
By: Ina Steiner
Aaaaaand they're gone. eBay sellers are wondering what happened to some popular features they had relied on: the auto-relist checkbox; saved-search RSS feeds; and category numbers.
RSS Feed: There's been a lot of discussion about what happened to RSS feeds on eBay, including this report on Ecommerce EKG. This is something shoppers also use to save searches, and for people who used it, it's a big loss, as described be these users on this eBay board.
Category Numbers: A seller noted that eBay removed category numbers from its category index page. "Why would eBay do this which makes setting up auctions with a lister like mine more difficult," he asked.
Auto-Relist Checkbox: Many sellers are bummed at the sudden disappearance of the auto-relist feature that let them set up listings to relist automatically up to three times if the item didn't sell - for free. (See the latest in Wednesday's Newsflash.)
What makes things worse is the way eBay "disappears" features. Users appreciate announcements - especially if they end up spending hours on the phone trying to get answers from eBay customer service reps.
