Auction extensions banned on eBay UK?

No primary category set

Actionbytes reported earlier this week that auction extensions were to be banned on This practise, whereby sellers list for the shortest time period possible, and then extend auctions with no bids, gains extra exposure at no extra cost. Several tools are available to sellers to do this automatically.

Though there has still been no official announcement for any of eBay’s sites about this change in policy (I think I may have said that once or twice before…), sellers are now reporting that revision tools are no longer working. Those who rely on this method to gain extra exposure for their items need to think again, and fast.
