eBay just announced a re-launch of the eBay Trading Assistant Program, to “raise the standards and improve the quality of the program to provide a better buying and selling experience.” This explanation is in line with the recent move to make eBay, in general, a better experience for buyers, and comes hot on the heels of the recent upgrade to the eBay Certified Provider Program website.
eBay has made some interesting changes that we note below:
- “Trading Posts” are now called “Registered eBay Drop-Off Locations.” These are physical storefronts where you can take items to be sold for a commission.
- The term “Auction” or “Auctioneer” is no longer permitted in your name, signage or marketing material. This is to protect an eBay Trading Assistant from states that feel you should be licensed as an auctioneer if you advertise yourself as an auction.
- eBay has created a new, easier to use directory for finding an eBay Trading Assistant in your area, should you need the services of one.
- The qualifications to become an eBay Trading Assistant or Registered eBay Drop-Off Location have been changed to require slightly higher experience and positive feedback levels.
All the grand details of the changes can be found on the eBay Trading Assistant Program Frequently Asked Questions page.
All current eBay Trading Assistants must register with this new program by 11 February 2008.
