October Seller Check-In | eBay
I’m attending eBay eBay Seller Events w/ October Seller Check-In on Oct 21, 2021

The agenda for this one looks pretty light.  I had hoped we'd be hearing about some of the yet to be seen "coming soon" features from eBay Open Online and the Fall Seller Update like

  • Store upgrades (marketing banners, visual category navigation, curated inventory & policy modules)
  • Sending coupons to buyer groups
  • Videos in listings
  • Immediate payment required on offers
  • Discounted 2.5% final value fee for sharing listings across social media

Is this an indication that eBay may be pushing back some of these new features to Q1 2022?
