Great and informative article. No Doubt some time new eBay policies really hurt the sales even of top seller. But new eBay seller has to put more efforts to get positive feedback to restrain in eBay business if they want to get more out of their eBay business

“Perhaps it’s time for sellers to put away the expectation that eBay should behave just as an all-powerful, but kindly, detached observer?”

Detached observer? Any seller on E-bay that expects than is in for a very rude awakening.

They have created a monopoly and think they know whats best. I know people who sell and do not ship if the auction price is low. Then relist. Ebay wont stop them. I know a company who shill bids and Ebay wont stop it!

Yet I know decent low volume sellers who have been banned because of scammers leaving then low DSR’s and they previously had 100% feedback.

In short ebay dont care about sellers JUST the money!

I did enjoy reading this post. It’s a good read to improve sales.

One thing is for sure when things ain’t clear like “cassini” there will be plenty of people who try to explain like Dan Brown has done in his book. Just be careful what you read and follow.

Informative article.

For those that have been on the platform for over 10 years will remember how change was inflicted during Meg’s reign. ebay will always need to change and move with the times. In the old days eBay would make massive fee increases with little of no warnings (as an example). They aren’t perfect but they have come along away since then.

All very good information. For many, things change but the core principals remain the same. Be a good seller and treat your customers like royalty and good things will come. Is not always so easy …it’s a business after all!

“They rate limit sales on eBay. By 10am sellers with a long history should be able to guess their sales for that day within a 5% to 10% window. The way I see it, sellers start the day with a neutral visibility modifier. By midday, if you’ve not matched the level of sales which your business is used to, they increase the modifier so you gain more views in eBay search. But if you’ve done really well that morning, and have surpassed your target, they’re going to move the modifier down to keep you within a consistent range.” I am completely horrified – the times I have seen this discussed o the forums and seem experienced long term sellers sneer at any of us for suggesting that we knew this was happening. Buy another £10k of stock? Fine – just sit and watch the first 10k of stock gather dust. I have to say that I don’t pay ebay to do this to me – and if I had had any kind of confirmation it was happening before today I would have moved off the site a long time ago. Patronising ebay twaddle as usual – how are they to… Read more »

I have been a top rated seller for over a year now on Ebay. On January 12, 2015 the ebay shipping system was down and sellers were unable to print shipping labels causing any sales the day before to miss the cutoff time for tracking upload. This caused me to fall below the 90% thresh hold for top rated status and it was revoked from my account. I spoke with several team members and finally ended up with a supervisor that basically told me that they realized that this affected my seller rating but there was nothing they would do about it. My sales have plummeted by 60% since then.

The same thing happen to me. This company doesn’t care any more. That’s probably the reason why they lost to Alibaba and Amazon.

All great data. For some, things change however the center principals continue as before. Be a decent merchant and treat your clients like sovereignty and great things will come. Is not generally so natural … it’s a business all things considered!
