I've not listed anything on eBay (who I'd previously found to be very effective) for a couple of years but I decided to sell a camera. I'd been meaning to list it for a while but finally got the incentive to do so when I got one of those 'no sellers fees' special offer emails from them last week. After struggling through their new (to me) seller interface (which didn't seem to give me the option to change postage to Royal Mail Special Delivery or to block overseas bidders) I eventually got my camera listed as a 'Buy it now' sale. That was last week, today I get the following email from them: "Hi *******, Buyers can now make offers on your listing. Listings that accept offers from buyers have a higher chance of selling because they provide more opportunities to attract buyers and make a deal. If you haven’t already, be sure to download our app, so you don’t let any offers pass by. Every offer is an opportunity. If you don’t want to receive offers, go to Manage offer settings to update your preferences." If I'd wanted an 'accept offers' option I'd have asked for it (or rather I wouldn't have actively unchecked the default option box and deselected the option!). So I had to log in to my account to revise the listing and delete the 'make an offer' option. If that wasn't enough, I was then faced with the following pop-up message after pressing save changes: "Make sure your item gets sold Starting 10 days after listing, we'll lower the price (5% every 5 days) until your item sells or gets to £51.00. We'll notify buyers who showed interest each time the price drops. Turn it off at any time by going to your listing." So I had to opt out of that as well (and I'll be keeping a watch on it to make sure it doesn't re-select itself!). Is this how eBay now conducts itself, or am I only getting this mither because I signed up to a 'no sellers fees' special offer? If this is now going to be eBay policy then I think they're going to shoot themselves in the foot with tricks like that. If I want to give my stuff away I'll pass it on to a mate, not let some random stanger get it for well under the going rate by default just to give eBay a sale! Has anyone else experienced this sort of thing?
