Can I Close My eBay Store without a Penalty?
A few weeks ago, you shared the deadline date for eBay if a seller wants to close their store and not be penalized since eBay is raising the store fees.
I can't find the article and I don't know if I've missed the deadline to close one of my stores. Please advise if possible and thank you.
From the Editor: For those unfamiliar with recent changes: as part of the 2016 Spring Seller update announced on April 5th, eBay is raising Basic and Premium Store subscription fees by 25% and Anchor Stores fees by 75%. (eBay is also adding some perks, including offering dedicated customer service for Anchor Stores beginning in July.)
There has been a lot of confusion due in part to inconsistent information provided by eBay's own customer service, but according to an eBay FAQ:
Sellers with an annual subscription have 60 days after this Seller Update (until June 4th) to change their Store level without a penalty. You may also cancel your Store subscription until June 4th without incurring early termination fees (if they apply).
