A message from John McElligott, eBay Ireland
Dear eBay.ie member
Dia dhíbh a chairde go léir. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy New Year and thank you for your custom during 2007.
2007 was a year of many highlights for us at eBay.ie: we reached 500,000 users; introduced the e-Parcel card with An Post; partnered with 3V, Vodafone, O2 and 3; and consolidated our position as Ireland’s leading online marketplace.
New Changes for 2008
Over the coming months eBay will be introducing a whole series of new changes, many based on your feedback to us. These changes will benefit good sellers, will give buyers even greater confidence when shopping on eBay.ie, and will encourage buyers to come back for more.
At the heart of these changes is our commitment to ensuring that sellers who offer great service get the best opportunities in the marketplace.
Alongside this, many sellers ask why they still pay eBay an up-front fee even if the buyers we bring them don’t always convert into sales. Sellers also tell us that they want their fees to better reflect the volume of sales they make on the site. eBay is delighted to announce today a new scheme, open to all sellers that will do exactly that, reducing the risk of listing and rewarding those with high sales and service levels with discounts.
Finally eBay is making a series of changes to our Feedback process both from the perspective of the buyer and seller. We believe these changes will help differentiate and benefit those sellers providing excellent service to our buyers.
Please take the time to read through all the details on this page and as always, we look forward to your feedback on them. We will continue to update you as these changes take effect.
Thank you for your continued support throughout 2008 and beyond. The entire eBay team wishes you continued success for your business on eBay.ie.
Slán agus beannacht.
