Hi everyone...I'm Julie Netzloff with eBay's Finding team. We've been working to improve how our Best Match sort works to help buyers find relevant items more quickly. In the next few days, we're going to run a test where Best Match will be the default sort order in the following five categories:
- Consumer Electronics
- Computers & Networking
- Cameras & Photos
- Cell Phones & PDAs
- Toys and Hobbies
If you prefer to use a different sort order (such as "Time: Ending Soonest"), you can change it by using the Sort By drop-down menu at the top of the search results. If you've already set your sort order preference using the "Customize Display" link (found to the right of the Sort By drop-down), you won't be affected by this test.
For more details about Best Match - and to leave us feedback about the test - I invite you to visit our thread on the Search discussion board here.
