EBay Announcement: Holiday Return Policy Change

November 5, 2014

Just in from the vice president himself (of eBay, that is): Throughout November and December, eBay will not require sellers to offer extended holiday returns in order to earn Top Rated Plus benefits.

And the good news just keeps on pouring in: If you decide to offer the extended holiday returns period anyway, in addition to your current 20% discount, you’ll also get a 5% discount bonus off final value fees. Wait, it’s not over yet — if you implement extended holiday returns, eBay will recognize this and highlight item pages on search results to attract more buyers to your listings.

Note that this change replaces the information we shared a couple weeks ago on eBay’s holiday returns policy.
