E-Bay changes?
 
I assume others have seen the changes but I am curious if anyone knows why, or if the changes are just a glitch or temporary?

I have noticed, when viewing old sales or e-mails about my saved listings, that when you click on the link within, it says card is now sold and they pop up another one.

I enjoyed looking at what cards sold for and I enjoyed re-examining them if I didn't do so when I chose to save them in my watch list.
Sometimes you can see them but most times you can't now.

I have also noticed, on here, when clicking the Postwar tab, that sometimes modern comes up and sometimes it doesn't?

Anyone else disappointed that one can't examine previous sales like we could in the past? I know I am. :(

We were discussing that the other day.

Doing what I do (exposing sellers of forgeries), I now have to take screenshots of the auctions before they end, because now when you click the link to the "Sold Auction" it directs you to a live auction.

I looked but couldn't find anything before I posted. I'd like to read that thread if you remember where it is?

On the second bold. That is something I never thought of but I can understand the problems that that might generate.

Has anyone reached out to E-Bay or were these changes already announced and like me, no one read them?

I happen to think the new way sucks, but was there a reason for this that maybe warranted the changes?

There should be a word that says "listing" to the left that is an underlined link. When you click on it, you go to the old auction.

Yes...where it says "This Listing Is No Longer Available" click on the word "Listing" and it takes you to the complete item.

I just went into "ended" listings and I don't see the word "listing" nor an underlined link anywhere?

This basically all I get and the only thing left is the square box to delete the listing. (Didn't post like I hoped it would)

I am extremely disappointed in ebay lately; They have changed for the worse for sellers {and for all} as far as I can see:

(1) guaranteeing deliveries that the post office won't do unless with the most expensive overnight shipping service
(2) offering free returns; come on and encourage scammers/flippers/prospectors/ what ever you want to call them. Buy a card try to resell higher or request a minimum grade and when you don't get it......return it on the sellers dime {seems reasonable doesn't it} or buy that shirt wear it to the party than return it. I mean really; come on man...
(3) use a product catalog with stock images{another brain storm}
(4) never be able to leave buyer negative feedback; great idea how are we sellers supposed to know the good from the bad but I guess there are no bad buyers.
(5) make it difficult to look up past prices. {thank god for vcp & psa prices realized}
(6) remove the see sellers other items feature or make it harder to search a sellers store {another brainstorm}

The list goes on and on. I am not sure who is behind all this but in a few years when they -ebay- get bought out for pennies on the $; they will wonder what & how did that happen......

You can also put them on your eBay Watch List while they're live and they'll show you the sale price once completed.

I noticed the issue too. I was bidding on something during the last few seconds and was outbid and the page refreshed as the auction ended and showed me a complete different card and told me that item I was looking for was unavailable.


I also got an email from ebay today that said they turned on the best offer option in my auctions because I would have a better chance of my items selling. They also said I could go into the auctions and revise them if I wanted to turn the offer option off. Well, when you list an auction, it's offer option is on by default. So I unchecked it and now ebay decides it's better to have it on. I feel like the next step they'll take is they will start accepting offers that they feel is fair. Just as they recommend a price to list at. It's comical at times.
