eBay to rebalance fees again

No primary category set

Stephanie Tilenius arrived at ChannelAdvisor Catalyst, wearing shoes she purchased on eBay, to emphasise that she’s committed to the site, both as a user and as the new General Manager of eBay North America.

She told the Catalyst conference to expect to see bold change and faster change in the future. Pricing, seller standards, incentives and feedback are only the start but are already driving sellers to raise their game in the race to get products to the top of Best Match search results.

Pricing will be rebalanced again and eBay.com are to introduce category specific pricing across the site. Stephanie said that by this time next year eBay.com will be unrecognisable in comparison to today.

eBay.com are behind eBay UK on pricing, the UK were first to introduce specific pricing for media and technology categories. In the future pricing will be much more sensitive to the different markets, and the expectation is that insertion fees will drop further with emphasis on aligning eBay’s success will seller’s success.
