Pre-approved bidder/buyer de-approved

No primary category set

In December we spotted notices on the Bidder/Buyer Management page stating that the pre-approved bidder feature would be phased out. This was eventually officially confirmed in an announcement by Gareth Griffith (GG) in January. The feature will remain in place only for high-profile charity auctions which eBay will enable on a case by case basis.

The feature has now disappeared from the Bidder/Buyer Management page leaving just the Buyer Requirement Preferences (Which ALL sellers should take a look at), Blocked Bidder/Buyer list and Buyer Requirements Exemption list.

  1. Ebay USA didn’t think we deserved hearing about it. They submitted no formal announcement. Auctionbytes communicated the change. AND THEY SAID NOTHING ABOUT THE CHARITY AUCTION EXCEMPTION
