eBay UK has revealed that they have made some changes to the quick listing tool. You can find out about the changes here. You can access the quick listing tool, and it’s more advanced equivalent, via the eBay Seller Centre.
Here are the changes as noted on the discussion forums:
“- Easily copy listing details from similar sold items.
– Drag and drop photos or synch them with your desktop draft from a mobile device.
– View guidance on pricing to increase your chances of selling your items.
– View delivery recommendations or pick your own, including collection in person and international options to reach more buyers.
At the same time, all fixed-price listings will include the Best Offer by default and free of charge. Allowing Best Offers helps listings get noticed and you decide whether to accept the offers or not.”
It’s the addition of Best Offer, as you can imagine, that has been the most controversial change here. With users of the tool saying that if they want to use Best Match, they’d add it anyway. To clarify, Best Offer will only be added to new listings and won’t be switched on retroactively on existing listings.
It’s worth remembering that you still have the choice in the advanced listing tool available in the Seller Centre. And if you’re selling on ebay at any sort of professional level then you should be trading up and using that tool.
And don’t forget, Turbo Lister is being gradually phased out over the course of 2017 too making it a salient time to consider how you administer your eBay listings. You might embrace the tools eBay offers or take on a third-party tool. Plenty are available.
