Is this US only do you know? I'm trying to markdown my stock and it won't allow me to add my listings added in the past few days. I'm in the U.K

Thanks Casey!

eBay will be the My Space in 15 years.

EBay realized they were making a lot less less money, because sellers were selling less. This ranks up there with Coke deciding to retool their soda to the New Coke, way back when. eBay had a major profit fail and they had to backtrack. $$
Brian Bowen (3 months ago)
THANK YOU eBAY!!! I don't think they had enough discussions....I think they lost enough money!! (along with the rest of us) Oh well, all's well that ends well! :)
Greg Kleist (3 months ago)
This reversal MAY only be for Q4. Their announcement also says "If there are any changes made to this decision in the coming year, you’ll be informed right away." So... we'll see if the reversal sticks!
Ed Gein (3 months ago)
The FTC has laws about how long a product has to be listed at regular price before it can be marked "on sale" and they have given companies big fines for violating them.
Aaron Kluge (3 months ago)
Keep up the good fight sir!
Ralph Anastasio (3 months ago)
What do you think about drop shipping on ebay from sites like walmart?
Tolkatore (3 months ago)
I thought it was a good idea actually, because what's the point of a sale, when everyone has all their stuff on sale all the time?
Illinois Picker (3 months ago)
Deceptive - whatever tell that to all the companies who do it every day with millions in Advertising (MCD, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo., etc.).
Illinois Picker (3 months ago)
I have a sale that the items still have not re-activated yet when will this take effect Casey do you know?
Illinois Picker (3 months ago)
I ended the old sale and started a new one and it took off like it should have.
dragonflygirl (3 months ago)
Thank you eBay :) and Thank you Rockstar Flipper for the update :)
Cathy Mapes (3 months ago)
Thanks for the news Casey. I have been hesitant to get started selling on ebay. I have been studying all the ins and outs and watching almost all of your videos (tyvm). With this good news I'm ready to pull the trigger and get started selling. I'm on the east coast, West Palm Beach area and hope sourcing is good here. I'll let you know.
Rebecca Brown (3 months ago)
Woot! Yay!
nawluck (3 months ago)
Question. Does anyone think that this was hurting EBAYS wallet as well? Wondering if eBay was still making the same amount of sales or if it slowed down for them too?
This is great news.. I have heard we get a boost in search when using mark down sales.
Jeffrey Walters (3 months ago)
I wouldn't put it up for $20. I'd price it at $19.99, beating your sale price by a penny.
Crazywaffle5150 (3 months ago)
Glad I have no need for this because I sell higher value items and collectables. My items are always seen and If I ever mark down, it's manually done lol.

Does anyone know if the "share your link" promotion will work if you send it through eBay messages? I've done it but not sure if I avoided fees. Seems like a MAJOR loophole if it works
Marsha Cherry (3 months ago)
Hi casing it is valrico's cherry picker here I was wondering if you could tell me what the name of the jean with DG is
Marsha Cherry (3 months ago)
+RockstarFlipper Hi sweetheart what I met was the label has DG that's all that's in the label and I can't find the name or what that stands for. Now the G at the top of the cross point has a star if that helps
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
Jean with DG?
I’m trying to get a business started reselling Disney World specific items sold only in the parks, on eBay. But I’m having a very slow go of it. I’m trying not to carry stock unless I know it will sell. Am I setting myself up for failure by not carrying a stock? Need help. Suggestions?
Peter Currie (3 months ago)
Perhaps put in shipping notes etc that you only ship once every 10 days.
RockstarFlipper I live just north of Orlando. I made about $500 profit on the Haunted Mansion Funkos and another $300 on the cauldron popcorn buckets. So I know there is a lot of money to be made. Plus as a passholder I get 20% off of almost all merchandise. Problem with running there every day is I have a 9-5 job as an accountant so going every day is basically improbable.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
I mean if you live near the park and can go everyday and grab whatever sells then absolutely you could do it...List everything and then wake up in the morning and drive and get it and then take it and ship it....kind of a pain. Once you know items are sellable then I would start stocking. Also if Disney every stopped selling an item and you sold it, you could be in trouble.. Worth a shot I guess.... But Disney in park prices, I dont see how you could profit on ebay with the prices they charge inside of the parks.. I live 45 minutes from Disney world in Orlando and I would never think to resell anything
Jim Baugh (3 months ago)
Thank you Ebay!
Flippin' Sister (3 months ago)
Yesssssssssssssss EBay, finally ! Thank you eBay!!!
Whatugh beast (3 months ago)
Nice! I personally don't use the markdown. I do different methods. Mainly because I agree/disagree lol Personally I believe buyers now a days are more informed regardless of that strike through lots of them know prices get inflated and then put on "sale". Nonetheless glad those who use markdown got their use of it back haha😁
jason s (3 months ago)
It looks like the strikethrough pricing on the android app is only showing up on some sellers. I see strikethrough on the mobile site and desktop but on the app only some sellers are getting the strikethrough when stuff is on sale. Anyone else see this? I'm talking about the search results, strikethrough is showing up on the app if you click a listing.
Honda Hangouts (3 months ago)
Good move Ebay. Putting sellers in the win column this time is nice for a change!
Axel Rosa (3 months ago)
I knew that idea was going to screw eBay and resellers.. they realized they was loosing money... it’s crazy
High Desert Barb (3 months ago)
First thing I did this morning was put my store on sale!!!
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
I think a whole bunch of people did lol
jason s (3 months ago)
So we can raise prices 100% then markdown 50% ?
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
You can mark them down any amount you want
Joanne Sinn (3 months ago)
Casey, it's no different than selling something for $19.99 opposed to $20. Even if the person has more and better feedback that mentality kicks in over a lousy penny lol.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
Exactly
Jen Bishop (3 months ago)
I wish we could be as happy as you guys, but after just speaking to ebay on Live Chat - here in Australia we STILL have to wait 7 days to put Items on Promotion... Which sucks!.. And we don't get other cool stuff that you guys get, like coupons for shipping supplies etc.. :( C'mon Ebay Australia - Get with the Program!!!
Jen Bishop (3 months ago)
Yes I could only hope that Ebay Australia would get with the Program. We are SO far behind here, it isn't even funny!..
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
Ouch.. come on Australia get with it!
Warren Smith (3 months ago)
Finally! Is ebay corporate going to make a major U Turn and FINALLY start heading in the right direction???! This IS a start, and a Great Decision by ebay corporate. But on the rest I guess we'll just have to wait and see what they do.
Warren Smith (3 months ago)
Agreed! Lets just hope they continue in this direction
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
This was a wonderful change!
Hugo Lopez (3 months ago)
Yessssssssssssss !!!!!!!!! Thank god
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
For sure!
FashionsonFire (3 months ago)
I just noticed this myself. Would have been nice to have been notified Ebay....but super happy. Doesn't it seem weird for them to make a change like that without announcing it?
Tracy (3 months ago)
This is the best news I've gotten all day! Thanks for letting us know and THANK YOU, eBay, for listening and doing the right thing.
Vickie Clark (3 months ago)
That's awesome. Ebay is always changing stuff and most of the time it's not that bad and we can adjust to it. But I think they realized that this was something that really not only hurt sellers but hurt Ebay as well. It was something that was not in everyone's best interest. I'm glad they listened. Cause if the sellers don't make money, neither does Ebay. And putting a hold on markdown manager like that was a really stupid thing. Even with all the changes that comes along in business, not doing sales is never a smart thing. That is one thing that you can't change. Buyer's love a deal! That is guaranteed. I'm glad they came to their senses.
Starr Bryson (3 months ago)
Additionally, it is alleged that items on sale get a boost in search rankings.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
Yes and theres that also!!
Owen Walker (3 months ago)
Oh Thank God!! I just started a new promotion and everything is back to normal! No more waiting :-)
Michele D (3 months ago)

scott hubbard (3 months ago)
i figured that out when my stuff went on sale after 2 days instead of 2 weeks like i was expecting!
Karen Turner (3 months ago)
HAPPY DANCE!!!!!
Alex S. (3 months ago)
What Casey says in the video is true. I went to a Coach Purse outlet 5 years ago and they had everything marked down 75%. Everything was priced from $200-$500 range. At the time I thought it was a big sail I stumbled opon. I returned recently and guess what? They had the same exact sale going on. I think that sale went on every day. They do it because it obviously works.
Mike Martin (3 months ago)
Thanks EBAY! Were going to rock this holiday season thanks to you're decision.
David Niebeling (3 months ago)
So I'm probably going to get a lot of haters, but I kind of liked the 14 day waiting period. I could get full price for the item in the first 14 days and then it would automatically drop to my sale price and I didn't have to do anything. Now if I want to run an item at normal price for a couple of weeks before having it go on sale I have to go in and update them manually. Just another step for me to do. And yes, I do feel it's rather deceptive having your items ALWAYS on sale. So I guess what I need to do is if I want to sell an item for $100 I need to list it for $1000 and do a 90% discount sale so it looks like I have a bigger discount than everyone else. Seems F-ed up to me!
Alex S. (3 months ago)
Finally some good news from eBay. They really screwed over the sellers the past 6-8 months.

Also Ebay has gone after Amazon for poaching eBay sellers recently. In the news.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
I made a story on this a couple days ok lol
Paul DeLeo (3 months ago)
eBay management supposedly makes decisions based on data and I think this time, it was Devin shooting from the hip based on his opinion that “items always on sale are never on sale” (or something like that he said) and was just proven wrong. When you are paid as much as him, it’s hard to understand how a sale motivates buying decisions.
Beach Town Reseller (3 months ago)
Paul DeLeo . Agreed.
Beth Mediation (3 months ago)
Thank you for listening, eBay.
Capitalist American (3 months ago)
Awesome news. Be safe with the weather news etc. My mailman is behind today so I will be headed to the post office as well.

That's great!!!!! Is anyone else hating that the eBay app for iPhone is constantly changing?!?!?!
BringItBackAgain (3 months ago)
And dear God I will they wouldn't slap on offers for us in the new app automatically with a decline/accept offer amount for us. I have to remember to look and take that off. No Ebay if I am listing something for 60 dollars I don't want to accept an offer for 20 bucks. Thank you.
BringItBackAgain (3 months ago)
Updating 20 drafts. It's a new app, no it's the old, nope it's new, nope it's old. Every day over and over and this is with in a 20 minute time span. If I have say 15 or 20 drafts I am downloading pictures to the app will literally change from the new to the old with in those 20 listings. Also, one minute it shows views on the main screen and the next it's gone. Also on my phone it's showing a clock count down under the item on the main screen but cutting off the hour. lol. Maybe I have the screen zoomed in. But it's frustrating, I get used to it the new way and then it's back to the old and vice versa.
Noam Aziz (3 months ago)
It’s so annoying! I have to change the shipping to free shipping and then the weight to 4 oz instead of 8 then change the immediate pay to yes, then I need to do it over again take the best offer again instead of taking 30 seconds it takes over a minute... just so annoying!
damegarbo (3 months ago)
Omg, yes!! I list mainly on my phone, and the changes they have made are not for the better. I have emailed ebay ios many times, requesting they change back many of the prior easier features. The prior app was not too bad, but what they changed it to now is definitely not better, too much to go in to here, about all the features changed or missing, but I would suggest emailing [email protected] to let them know, as the more that voice an opinion, the better.

I guess I should open a store now.. I was going to right before they made the new policy and wanted to see what was going to happen with it.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
You should have a store anyways if your listing enough items....typically cheaper with the store
Rocky Brook (3 months ago)
I just started in reselling. I have my first listing on ebay. I posted up a brand new Seattle lynch Jersey wish me luck lol.
Crazywaffle5150 (3 months ago)
You need allot of listings for clothing unless it's high in demand.

Good luck and welcome to the obsession!

GOOD LUCK!!
Steven Hingle (3 months ago)
If you walk into a brick and mortar store. There are candy at the checkout that is "marked down" people see it and they buy. It is strictly an impulse buy. These sales are the same for online. I was reading some where, that if you have 2 items for sale. One is marked $40 normal price and the other is marked $45 with 50% off people will buy the $45 one. Reason is people start looking at the one that is not marked down like there is something wrong with the item. Is it broke, damaged, stolen, etc... Our brains are weird with things like that. I believe it is strictly due to over thought.

Bryan Huntsman (3 months ago)
I actually liked the 14 day wait period.
Bryan Huntsman (3 months ago)
I liked pricing my listings at a competitive price that might sell within the two weeks. If It didn't sell in the 2 weeks then it would just go on sale. My store is usually always on sale so I didnt' like an item going on sale immediately. However It's not a big deal and I'll just go back to my old stragedy. I do like how we don't have to wait 14 days for a sale after changing the price.
Emperor9992001 (3 months ago)
+RockstarFlipper I liked it because I could have 500 on sale listings older than 14 days that didn't have to compete with your less than 14 day old listings.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
Im gonna take a wild guess that you will be one of only a couple of people in the comment sections who agree. How come you liked it? Curious
Sir Thrifts-A-Lot (3 months ago)
A huge thank you to EBay.
Gerald Grandfield (3 months ago)
I'm not thanking them. It's like thanking a bully for giving you your bike back.They cost me $1,000s in sales over the past few months. Plus they still screwed the pooch on the mobil app. Absolutely useless for listing now. Don't worry they will do something equally stupid in a short time.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
Agreed!!
