eBay scrap reserve prices in Spain

No primary category set

As fee announcements roll out across Europe similar to those announced for the UK this morning Spain goes one step further. They are to scrap all reserve prices and remove the feature from the Spanish website. According to the Spanish price change announcement reserve prices created frustration for buyers not knowing how high they would have to bid in order to win the auction.

As stated earlier today we predict reserve prices will be eventually withdrawn from the UK site as well.

In accordance with the commitment to reinvest in eBay core to make eBay fun and unique again, eBay Spain are to encourage auctions. Fixed Price listing fees will be slightly higher than auction format.

Also Best Offers in Spain are now available in all categories.

A final humerous note, in error eBay have given a browser title of “eBay España: 10p Listing Day” to the announcement. Well in the UK for media sellers every day’s a 10p listing day from now on 😉

  1. reduced prices for record and CD listings are welcome BUT it makes shop listing less attractive especially as they have less visibility
    Talking of which what has happened to UK listings in the default searches made on eBay.com. My sales to US sellers on eBay have disappeared in last few months – eBay is no longer an international site so I have resorted to selling on djangos, gemm, musicstack and netsounds all of which have an international buying audience.
    Selling on eBay is now like having a local corner shop to do it instead of a giant superstore!
