Article out this morning that has an interview with JD, here’s the relevant points:
- sellers with high shipping fees may not appear in the first page of search results
- “EBay needs to evolve the user experience to be more competitive and differentiated”
- “We could start basing our search results or other policies on user feedback, or at least give the buyer a warning.”
As mentioned earlier, we released the DSRWatch.com utility to help sellers get ready for this change in 2008.
