Back in July eBay relaxed the rules on livechat programs on auction listings allowing Skype buttons to be included on listings in a small number of categories. eBay have today announced an expansion to the eligible categories to include:
- Everything Else
- Health & Beauty
- Home & Garden
The sub categories of:
- Consumer Electronics > Televisions
- Wholesale & Job Lots > Antiques & Art
- Wholesale & Job Lots > Baby
- Wholesale & Job Lots > Consumer Electronics
- Wholesale & Job Lots > Pottery, Porcelain & Glass
- Wholesale & Job Lots > Sports Memorabilia
The complete list including the original categories can be found on the ‘Skype for buyers and sellers’ page on eBay.
If you don’t already have Skype on your computer, now’s the time to get it, because someone somewhere wants to talk to you! It’s worth noting that eBay have yet to update their links policy to incorporate Skype useage on their site.
