Changes to eBay emails

No primary category set

If you use email filters or automated response systems to deal with your eBay email, you need to know that eBay are changing the email subject lines. The emails affected “soon” are registration, bid and listing confirmations, favourite seller update and daily buying and selling summaries – emails which I’d imagine most of the world has turned off – but “other emails will be changing in the next few weeks so please keep checking for announcements”.

  1. I don’t have the item listed email turned off ๐Ÿ™‚

    But then my software does read them for me and then delete them so it keeps track of exactly what is listed at any one time.

  2. I don’t have the item listed email turned off either as I use it for checking purposes — but hey! ebay isn’t sending them to me at the moment anyway, so what the heck!

  3. Oops, lost emails wouldn’t make for a rigorous management system ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    I prefer to use TurboLister to see what I’ve got online at any time.

  4. True, but I have contingency plans in case of lost emails (which doesn’t happen too often).

    Turbo Lister is not much good at keeping track of stock listed in more than one place unfortunately, not that I would let it loose on my PC again anyway.

  5. My TL keeps telling me stuff I have sold is still unsold, so I don’t trust it… I have my own excel sheets for most management stuff, but sometimes I want the original url for an item that is outside the limits for ebay sold item lists, and then I use either the unsold emails or the listed items ones, depending on which mail box got fuller and got purged by accident….

  6. Yup.

    And I’ve also recently unloaded and reloaded TL from scratch and it STILL doesn’t synchronise properly.

    I can’t be bothered any more….:(

  7. Well the item listed emails have now changed and, typically from eBay, the most useful bit of information (the item number) is now missing entirely from the email. Looks like that contingency plan is now going to become my main system for stock control. ๐Ÿ™
