For those of you who list on eBay using the featured first upgrade, eBay have yet again changed the game and as of June 29 2010 eBay will be discontinuing this feature and you will no longer be able to simply buy your first place position in eBay’s best match search.
Instead, eBay have proposed that sellers use eBay’s pay per click program adcommerce. If you sign upto add commerce your adcommerce ads will be displayed above or below the main search display area. I have noticed eBay are currently testing this and move ads around a bit to supposedly test the best area for the new adcommerce ads.
You’ll find by using adcommerce you will be charged every time a browser clicks on your adcommerce ad. Will this really replace the benefits of featured first for sellers or is it another ploy to drip more money from your bank account into eBay’s? Only time will tell and eventually I predict adcommerce will have been extensively tested enough to replace featured first but that could take time..
