eBay has announced a set of new changes as part of its 2017 Spring Seller Update – several of which favorably affect our affiliate partners. In this episode of EPN TV, John Toskey highlights these updates.
One of the changes that we expect the eBay community to be excited about is the removal of third-party product listing ads. John says that these sponsored links have long been a pain point for sellers and our partners. So effective May 1, 2017, while you may still see display or text ads around the site, eBay will remove all third-party product listing ads and will replace them with promoted listings from eBay sellers. By removing this external competition, John anticipates that this will make your referred buyers more likely to remain on eBay to complete a sale.
We’re excited to share this positive development with youFor more details on what else is included in the 2017 Spring Seller Update, visit the Seller Center. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments below.
