eBay 2019 Early Spring Seller Update



eBay is planning a regular Seller Update for late April, but they are providing a limited update now!


Send offers to buyers with new feature

Starting in March 2019, a new "Offer to buyers" feature in Seller Hub will enable you to send offers to buyers of some of your listings. 


Download the Orders Report directly in Seller Hub

Starting in March 2019, you will be able to easily access and quickly download an Orders Report.


Listing duration for all fixed price listings will be Good 'Til Cancelled

Starting in mid-March 2019, the listing duration for all new fixed price listings on eBay will be Good 'Til Cancelled. Existing fixed price listings that are not Good 'Til Cancelled will continue until they sell or end at their specified duration. If a short-duration fixed price item is relisted, the duration will be set to Good 'Til Cancelled upon relist.


Provide item specifics to list items without the eBay catalog

You will be able to optimize your listings for product-based shopping by simply providing complete and accurate item specifics when you list.


Automatic updates of "New other" condition listings

During the next few months, eBay will start automatically updating existing listings in the Electronics, Home & Garden, Health & Beauty, and Musical Instruments categories that have a "New other" item label to a new "Open box" label and definition. 


State sales tax requirement update

In October 2018, eBay announced that several states passed laws requiring eBay, as well as other online marketplaces, to collect sales tax on taxable items mailed to addresses in those states. In such cases, eBay calculates, collects, and remits the sales tax on your behalf. They collect the sales tax at checkout and you do not need to take any action. eBay does not charge a fee for this function.
