At our USA Catalyst event, during Bill Cobb’s keynote, one of the points of feedback BC said he would work on is longer notification for listing promotions. In the UK they have gone to giving at least 24hrs and many times as long as a week to let the seller base prepare for a listing promo.
Last night eBay announced a $.20 auction-style listing promo for Tuesday April 24th. The timing of the announcement gives sellers a little over 24hrs to prepare for the promo.
This is a great example of eBay listening and acting on a seller recommendation – Thanks BC!
