eBay announces changes to its U.S. eBay Motors site that will impact sellers who used the 21-day duration option in select categories.
Starting October 22, 2018, the 21-day duration option for fixed-price listings will no longer be available for the following eBay Motors categories:
- Cars & Trucks
- Other Vehicles & Trailers
Instead, eBay will offer a new 30-day listing duration option for fixed-price listings in these categories, which will cost sellers $50.
This price change applies to listings on the U.S. site only and sellers can find out more about the changes here.
No Changes to Parts & Accessories
This fee and duration changes will not impact the Parts & Accessories categories.
While Parts & Accessories once dominated the aftermarket online parts business, competitors such as Amazon and B2C sales by major aftermarket brands have taken a chunk out of eBay’s market share in parts and accessories.
eBay has added features such as on-demand repair manuals to try to minimize market share losses. And for Wheels and Tires it now offers options for sellers to add installation service near the buyer’s location.
