Sellers Grow Wary of eBay Advice in New Customized Reports

Sun Jan 17 2021 19:59:19 By: Ina Steiner Sponsored Link When some eBay sellers panned a new report designed to help them improve their listings, an executive acknowledged it was a work in progress, even though it doesn’t appear eBay advised sellers of that fact when making it available to them.eBay executive Harry Temkin touted the new Listing Quality Report during a podcast published on Tuesday, which he said was currently available to approximately 30,000 US sellers.”This report goes well beyond just telling you how much you’ve sold.

(U.S. Navy Photo / Cody Hendrix)The U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels had to pass up their traditional Seafair air show in Seattle last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but assuming the all-clear is given, they promise to come roaring back this August.

The shift is the result of a transition that’s been years in the making.
