eBay - the great disappointment! from terrywebbs's blog


Another nail in the coffin for eBay sellers with new updated selling policies out in August.


What's changing

  • From October 2017, you'll no longer be allowed to share contact information in your item descriptions, images or eBay Shops. This does not apply to Classified Ads.
  • Your contact details will continue to be available to buyers; they will automatically display under Business details on the seller's profile page.
  • We've also updated our links policy to limit the types of links allowed on listings.


Sellers must now remove all correspondence information from listings mainly telephone numbers and emails.


Failure to do so will ensure the listings effected will no longer relist.

Yet another eBay tactic to try and clamp down on buyers obtaining goods from eBay sellers outside of eBay...

If sellers are looking to edit all listings in one go with eBay's bulk editing tool (some HTML crap) it will crash randomly loosing all your updates or worse still show  warnings about images or other issues, and unless those listings are resolved those updates wont save, yet again forcing sellers to do more work. Since the demise of turbo lister what options do sellers have but to use the HTML eBay tool, and yes it is a tool in every sense of the word! You can choose to editing each listing from the item listing page one by one and this method does not encounter these same issues and you can save the updates regardless of image quality, however if you have over 2,000 listings do you really want to edit them individually?

 Not only that but eBay are currently forcing all your hypertext links to a blank page, so if any sellers have links in listings that aren't set with the open link in a blank page they may all fail after 2017! Thanks eBay yet another epic fail!

 Just when PayPal was getting better, eBay now drops down a few pegs.
