Policy Change Hurting U.K. eBayers

A change in the way eBay lists items entered on has wrought havoc to many U.K sellers.

Until recently, items listed on were automatically returned in product searches on (the U.S. site). However, with little notice being given, U.K. products are now only returned on if searchers use the advanced search option to include U.K. products.

This has caused a dramatic reduction in sales for many British ebayers who have also had to deal with ludicrous fee increases earlier this year. Some sellers have reported reductions of as much as 90% in sales since the change was introduced in Feburary this year.

eBay has formally apologized to British sellers for the lack of notice. Well, "Thanks eBay . . . for nothing."
