For those that enter tracking numbers into eBay using a scanner there’s been a small but welcome change to the bulk tracking entry form.
Previously if you could enter tracking numbers in bulk by typing them in, but if you scanned your tracking bar codes the page would refresh after each scan due to the escape character all scanners use by default. (An escape character is like pressing the return key, which is useful when scanning into a spreadsheet as it moves the mouse cursor to the next cell. However on the tracking form it had the effect of clicking the submit button).
eBay have now changed the form so that the escape character no longer causes the page to refresh allowing tracking numbers to be scanned faster with no delay caused by page refreshes. After each scan there’s simply a welcoming beep and you can go ahead and scan the next tracking number immediately.
This glitch has annoyed me ever since tracking numbers were introduced on eBay! Great to see a minor annoyance being fixed.
