The eBay UK Spring 2020 Seller Release is out today and with the news announced overnight that eBay Payments is coming to the UK it’s no surprise that the Seller Release addresses the migration from PayPal.

There’s a neat mobile app upgrade to remove the background from product shots and replace with a white background, enhancements to the fantastic Send Offers to Buyers feature and upgrades to Terapeak in eBay Seller Hub.
Naturally Item Specifics are covered in the eBay UK Spring 2020 Seller Release, but don’t worry no new mandates have been announced since the last tranche in January. However eBay want to make them easier to manage so there are a raft of tools changes to assist with this.
Multi-User Account Access is coming to the UK to enable multiple employees and contractors to be giving limited access to your eBay account to perform various tasks to assist you in running your business.
