Get the Message to eBay

Tuesday, 25 November 2008 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

My last few posts have been about how I think Best Match is really hurting good sellers. eBay claims Best Match works, but compared to what? We have NO idea if some other way might work better because they're not testing another way as far as I know. So compared to nothing else, it's a success. :)

eBay also thinks Best Match is working because shoppers don't re-sort search results very often. If eBay is going to just go by numbers, we have to give them numbers. In all of my shopping on eBay lately, I have re-sorted search results by Price + shipping: lowest first. That undoes Best Match, and let's me start seeng who has what for what price.

Re-sort your search results. If you're reading this, you probably don't just sell on eBay. You probably buy on eBay. Or you shop. Or you shop just to see what competitors are doing. Re-sort your results. And then buy something. :) Unless you love Best Match and want to show eBay that it works and leads to sales!
