If you sell on eBay.com, you might be affected by some of the changes we've just announced in the US, especially if you're an eBay Top-rated seller in the US programme.
eBay.com Top-rated sellers
Starting in June, eBay.com Top-rated sellers who offer 1-day dispatch time and a minimum 14-day return policy with a money-back option will be rewarded with the greatest search exposure and if based in the US, a 20% final value fee discount.
There are also two changes to the criteria for qualifying for the programme:
- You will need to add tracking numbers or delivery confirmation on at least 90% of transactions with US buyers.
- The annual sales requirement to be included in the programme will be lowered from $3,000 to $1,000.
All sellers listing directly on eBay.com
From July, all sellers will be able to add up to 12 free pictures per listing listed directly on eBay.com, including free zoom and enlarge.
There will also be some changes to categories, item specifics and catalogues, which could affect your listings.
Read more about these and other changes taking place on eBay.com.
