eBay: Dutch Goes

No primary category set

eBay.co.uk have announced that the Multiple Item Auction format (‘Dutch auctions’ to you and me) will be retired on the 6th May 2009. On that date live Dutch auctions will be allowed to expire as usual. Dutch auctions scheduled to start after 6th May will be cancelled. Multiple Item Fixed Price listings will continue to be available and are unaffected.

As one of the least used formats on eBay, this change is likely to affect only a handful of sellers. The fiendishly complex Dutch format was not widely utilised and moreover, was little understood, especially by buyers.

  1. I’m so glad to see those go away. As a developer it was just one more listing type I had to deal with and I almost always found myself without a single test case to make sure my application even worked with it.
