eBay Makes Researching Sold Items More Challenging
I was wondering if anyone has mentioned to you that when you are researching sold items on eBay that more often than not when you click on the listing it takes you to an active item and it will say on the upper left side "The listing you’re looking for is no longer available. Check out this similar item we found for you."
The sold listing you wanted to see is suppressed. You can find it, but you have to click on "listing" in order to do so; needless clicking once again.
Also, I discovered that on some items it will take you to eBay's product page and not even take you to the sold item.
So this makes me wonder, once an item is affiliated with the product page/ eBay's buy box we will no longer be able to extract and research information for that sold item. Maybe this will be another way for them to generate revenue in the future, once all items are in the catalog?
Another money grab, by taking something away from us and making us pay for utilizing sold information via TeraPeak??
I bet this will be a new feature, oh I mean an experience, in the Fall Seller downdate.
