eBay Asks for Help in Cleaning up Product Pages
By: Ina Steiner
Sellers are seeing product reviews in their listings that have nothing to do with them or their products - that's because of eBay's catalog, which associates seller listings with Product Pages. Others are seeing products that appear in the Product Pages that are not a match.
Now eBay is asking for help in cleaning up its Product Pages. In a new announcement on the eBay UK website, the company states, "eBay is built on the strength of our seller community, so we're giving sellers the opportunity to help make sure the right products reach the right buyers every time. Effective immediately, if you see an item that doesn't belong on an eBay product page, you can flag it to be reviewed and possibly removed."
It doesn't take care of all of the problems - such as reviews left for products by buyers that are really about their poor experience with a seller rather than a product.
And it seems possible the request for sellers to flag items could lead to abuse.
You can find the full announcement with instructions on how to flag products on the eBay UK announcement board
