eBay's New Seller Policies

News Flash: eBay Strike Is Over With New Policies in Effect

The eBay strike ended on Monday with uncertain results, meaning it's difficult for them to calculate whether or not the strike had much of an effect on the business.

While last week's strike was up and running, eBay implemented the first of its new policies which meant lowering listing fees but increasing the "final value" fees the site charges sellers as commission. Next month the search function will be updated so that volume sellers with high customer feedback ratings will get priority.

Next month eBay will also introduce a policy that will involve holding payments sent through PayPal for up to 21 days if the transactions are considered "high-risk." May will bring another update to its feedback system, and this time it will block sellers from leaving negative comments about buyers.

I had no idea they were striking, and I rarely buy things on ebay, except for during the strike! I got a kick out of it.
