eBay Reverses Unpopular Markdown Pricing Policy for Now | eCommerce Bytes

eBay reversed an unpopular pricing policy that limited sellers who use its Markdown Manager tool. Don’t look for an announcement on the seller board, however – it was posted by an eBay moderator when sellers discussed the issue on the company’s forums on Monday.

The initial policy restricted sellers when creating a markdown sale event with Promotions Manager: sellers had to have an item listed for 14 days at the same price before they could create a sale. The policy was announced as part of the Summer Seller Update on May 22nd and went into effect on June 25, 2018.

At the time, eBay said, “We recommend that you list your item at a competitive price before you create a markdown sale event. For many products, pricing recommendations are provided as you list and under the Growth tab in Seller Hub.”
