The mystery has been solved - the sneakers team buried a short demo at the end of their break out session from the recent Spring Seller Check In.
eBay announced today they are simplifying the mobile listing experience for "select" collectible sneakers...but you'll just have to guess which ones and what the new experience actually looks like. 🤦♀️
The vague and mysterious announcement was posted in the eBay community:
We’re now testing a new mobile listing experience in the eBay App for eligible collectible sneakers under select brands, listed under Men’s and Women’s Athletics Shoes. The new flow will make listing and selling on eBay faster and easier, with pre-filled item specifics, photo guidance, and streamlined shipping options.
The new listing experience will roll out in phases. During the initial phase, select sellers will be automatically opted-in. We welcome feedback and we'll continue to improve the new listing experience.
We’ll update you as we expand eligibility and participation in the new listing experience.
As always, thank you for selling on eBay.
The eBay Team
Thanks eBay Team but you might have gotten a better response if you provided some screenshots, or a video demo or.....something?
How about even the slightest hint about which brands and or specific collectible sneakers that are eligible?
Oh and by the way team, there's nothing eBay sellers love more than being automatically opted into your tests without warning - especially when it comes to the listing experience. 😉
I guess that means I'll just have to do some investigating and figure out the details myself to share with sellers. Stay tuned!
