eBay is forced to make changes again

Posted by helen on March 15, 2011

more and more sites offer free listings,   more and more sellers open up their own online stores… it looks like eBay is facing some serious challenges.  now eBay  has decided to offer you free listings, too…  but I am 100% sure the final value fee will soon increase to cover up its losses on listing fees, its just a matter of time.

here is a newsletter from eBay:

Coming April 19: List Auction-style FREE, any start price, all the time. Add Buy It Now FREE.

Your upfront cost of selling on eBay is about to be dramatically reduced once again!

Starting April 19, Standard Auction-style fees will be changing. You’ll be able to list FREE at any start price–up to 50 items a month. Plus you can add the Buy It Now option FREE to grab those buyers who don’t want to wait for your listing to end. In short, you can now list even your higher priced items free–pay only if it sells.

Also, we know online buyers pay attention to shipping costs when deciding what and where to buy. That’s why, to encourage low-cost shipping, Final Value Fees for all sellers will be applied to the total amount of the sale, including shipping. Just keep your shipping costs low to get the lowest overall fees.

5% PowerSeller discount retired–aim now to be an eBay Top-rated seller to earn 20% off
Also, starting with your June invoice, the 5% Final Value Fee discount for PowerSellers who are not eBay Top-rated sellers will be retired (all other PowerSeller benefits will continue). So be sure to check your Seller Dashboard for up-to-date information on your rating and what you can do to achieve eBay Top-rated seller status and earn a 20% discount as soon as possible.

New eBay Shopping Cart
Online shoppers are accustomed to adding items to a shopping cart–and they’re often motivated to buy more. That’s why we’re introducing the new eBay Shopping Cart that works with both Fixed Price and Auction-style items. Buyers can add items from multiple sellers and pay in one easy checkout–making it easier and more likely for them to buy more. It will become the way to shop on eBay before the 2011 holiday season.

New communications hub
Starting in May, you’ll be able to manage your communications with buyers from just one location within My eBay. View the emails that eBay sends to buyers after a transaction, manage your buyer-facing Automated Answers, or access your Store newsletters–all from one convenient page.

Category and item specifics changes
Category and item specifics changes are also consolidated with rest of updates. Find out if your listings are impacted.

As always, thank you for selling on eBay.
