The 2023 eBay Winter Seller Update just dropped, and it is jam-packed with exciting information for us resellers!
eBay Best Offer
eBay is beginning new initiatives specifically for “Best Offer” listings in the U.S. to help eliminate the problem of unpaid items. The elimination of all unpaid items is their ultimate goal, so this is a significant step in that direction.
Charges and finances
In terms of charges and finances, eBay is extending the per-order fee credit to take into account times when we give a buyer a complete refund. Additionally, they’re making it simpler for our listings to stand out by making the “Scheduled” listing upgrade and the “Buy It Now” listing upgrade for auction-format listings FREE for all sellers.
Along with all of this, eBay is now offering international shipping, which will simplify international shipping for U.S.-based sellers.
The best part, though? There are no shipping costs abroad; eBay is waiving the international fee for sellers and they will handle the international logistics at no cost!
Final value fees
Last but not least, eBay is modifying the final value fees in some categories to help make it a more reliable marketplace. This is part of their investment in ensuring that eBay is a thriving market for all of us.
Overall, for U.S. eBay sellers, this update is a game-changer. Let’s get selling!
