Did You Know eBay Notifies Your Watchers of a Price Drop? - EcommerceBytes

Have you ever bought an item you'd been eying for a while because you received a notification that the price dropped? Sometimes it's just the impetus a buyer needs to pull the trigger on a purchase. But do eBay and Etsy notify shoppers who are watching or have favorited your items when you've dropped the price? In a recent podcast, eBay claimed it does, but it doesn't seem to be a well known feature. During the August 23rd eBay for Business podcast , Jim "Griff" Griffith responded to a question from a seller who asked if eBay notifies shoppers about price drops of items they're watching. Griffith explained that eBay does send email alerts to buyers who have watched or viewed an item or has an item in their shopping cart when the seller lowers the price by a certain minimum percentage of the original selling price. eBay doesn't tell sellers the amount that triggers an email alert to a watcher, "but you can assume that 4% is probably not enough and perhaps six or 7% is enough," Griffith said. His eBay colleague and podcast co-host Brian Burke added, "I think all of our sellers and all of our listeners could understand why there's a threshold," since it would become annoying if buyers received alerts every time someone lowered their price by even a penny and might be inclined to turn off their email notification settings. Etsy also recently reminded sellers it alerts shoppers who have favorited an item, but it comes in the form of a notification in their Updates feed Were you aware of the price-drop emails (and do you receive them as a shopper?), and what features would you like to see added?
