SHF Radio Episode #73: eBay Spring Seller Update For Collectibles

SHF Radio Episode #73

The collectibles category lives on eBay. Amazon? Forget about it! Try doing it yourself with your own website? Good luck! So when eBay updates their fees and policies twice a year buyers and especially sellers need to pay attention. In this episode of Scouting Hot Finds Radio I am going to break down the changes eBay is rolling out to the marketplace on May 1, 2015. For the most part it’s a story of carrots and sticks. Some of the changers are meant to entice sellers to behave in a way that eBay sees as healthy for the site. Other changes are meant to rap you over the knuckles if you go against the tide especially if relaunching the same auctions a dozen times was your game.

Today’s episode is just shy of thirty minutes long and in it I will cover the A-Z of the update. I will really focus on how this impacts buyers/sellers in the collectibles category where Scouting memorabilia has a home. At the conclusion I will also share how I think this affects me as an eBay Powerseller with an Anchor level store subscription. BTW, check out my store at to see what I’ve got up for sale. As always you can listen to Scouting Hot Finds Radio (now on episode 73!) on iTunes or Stitcher Radio. If you want to find the show notes page visit my website at
