Lorrie: media fees cut, but nothing else changes
Lorrie Norrington has made her debut on the eBay Announcements Board with some good news for media sellers on eBay.com: insertion fees in the first three pricing tiers are to be cut from 20th February:
|Start Price||Old IF||New IF|
She goes on to make some response to complaints made by sellers over recent days: “we’ve heard you” on DSRs, eligibility for the Powerseller program, Best Match and no negative feedback for buyers. “If buyer trust in the marketplace is not improving as intended within the next six months, we will take action.” I’d be very interested to know exactly how one measures buyer trust specifically, but largely the message is that eBay are confident that their changes are the right ones for the marketplace, and that whatever sellers think, they’re going ahead. The lady’s not for turning: haven’t we heard that somewhere before?
