Today was the day that eBay UK were supposed to roll out the change to Best Match so that sellers could increase prices but not be penalised in Best Match for doing so. This was announced in the most recent Business Seller newsletter, but unfortunately the technology is not yet working. Sellers who’ve increased prices today have seen their BM standing plummet. before changing any prices, and have said that there will be an announcement made shortly. We’ll keep you updated if we find out anything more.
There is also some clarification on how UK listings with ISV will appear on eBay.com if they offer paper payment methods which have now been banned for US eBayers. James, eBay UK’s community manager, wrote on the :
As long as you are offering a safe payment method then your listings will show on the US Site. How this works is when you purchase ISV (because you need to offer PayPal as a requirement for ISV) if the listing also offers cheques/ money orders, then these payment methods will be removed & not appear as options on the US site.
We’re still waiting for clarification of what will happen to listings which offer paper payments within the body of the description. For now, if you’re paying for ISV, then avoiding mention of paper payment methods in your description is probably the safest route to take.
