December 21, 2007 | 02:31PM PST/PT
Hi everyone. This is Kristina Klausen from eBay's Shipping team. I would like to remind buyers and sellers that UPS rates will be changing effective Monday, December 31, 2007. The new rates will be reflected in the eBay Shipping Calculator [http://pages.ebay.com/services/buyan...gcenter7.html] and the PayPal Label Printing Solution [http://pages.ebay.com/services/buyan...gcenter9.html] early in the morning, December 31, 2007.
Sellers who are listing items with UPS shipping services that are expected to ship on or after Monday, December 31, 2007 should take the rate change into account at the time of the listing.
Further information about the rate change is available at http://www.ups.com/rates/.

***Coming Soon: Changes to Item Specifics***
December 21, 2007 | 02:08PM PST/PT
We plan to update the following eBay Item Specifics in early January:
-Cell Phone Accessories - "Chargers, Cradle Chargers" will change to "Chargers.”
-Gift Certificates, Lodging, Cruises, Vacation Packages and Airline – Year values will be updated.
-BMX Bikes, Mountain Bikes and Road Bikes – Model Year and Brands will be updated and Model changed from a pre-set selection to a text-entry field.
-Coins – Certification numbers added via Item Specifics will be partially masked on the item page.
Pre-filled Item Information is completely optional, and gives sellers an easy way to add basic, standard information to their listing. Examples include brands, models, colors, and stock photos. Using Pre-Filled Item Information can help save sellers time, and provides buyers with helpful information when searching for items to purchase.
Note: Sellers who use a 3rd party listing service (ChannelAdvisor, etc.), should contact them to verify that they will offer the Pre-filled Item Information capabilities in the categories listed above.
To learn more about Item Specifics please visit the Item Specifics overview page [http://pages.ebay.com/sellercentral/itemspecs_overview.html?ssPageName=CMDV:AB"]. If you have any comments or suggestions about Item Specifics, please email them to email@example.com.
