Welcome to the Spring 2021 Seller Update
A short message from eBay General Manager Murray Lambell
Listing & Promoting
Read up on all the latest item specifics updates. There will be a unified listing experience across multiple devices - desktop, mobile and tablet. We’re also introducing new promotion features such as Coded Coupons as well as automated campaigns for Promoted Listings.
Running your business
Discover the new Terapeak Sourcing Insights tool which will help you identify the best categories to list your inventory as well as a range of other enhancements to Terapeak Product Research. Improve your business efficiency and manage all of your post-sale claims in one convenient location in Seller Hub.
We are shortening the time it takes to cancel items and you’ll soon be able to offer partial refunds for auto-accepted returns. We’re adding further seller protection for sellers who get caught in Below Standards and “Very High” Service Metrics evaluation. There will be a policy update in Service Metrics which will enable further restrictions on sellers with a “Very High” number of “Item not as described” and “Item not received” return requests.
Importantly, find out about the upcoming tax law changes in the EU which will mean new requirements for all marketplaces. Read up on how you can prepare to comply with the changes in time.
New invoice format for managed payments and expanded payments support for international sellers.
