eBay Changes to Seller Standards: Read the Fine Print

Email This Story to a Friend

eBay announced a number of major changes to its site on January 29, 2008. Much attention has been paid to the fee and feedback changes, and to a lesser extent eBay's changes to search. Getting less attention are the changes around "Seller Standards." eBay created a FAQs section to outlining the changes called "Frequently Asked Questions: Rewards & Standards," and it is must-reading for sellers to be sure they understand the less-publicized changes that are taking place on the site. Other articles in today's newsletter tackle a few of the important changes.
