eBay did not wait until Friday night to
sneak in announce new updates to their Terms of Service. According to an email sent to its members, the key change to the user agreement is that Sellers who try to complete eBay listing sales outside of eBay (to avoid paying the various eBay fees) may be charged Final Value Fees regardless. Not sure how eBay is going to find out, but that’s what the updated Terms and Conditions say.
ANALYSIS: Perhaps the reason this was announced in the middle of the week is because eBay wants people to read this and stop doing it 🙂
