***Coming Soon: Second Category Testing***
Date: 02/28/05 Time: 11:47:30 AM PST
As many sellers know, some items can fit well in more than one category, and deciding where to list an item can sometimes be a challenge. For example, a vintage dish could be listed in either the Collectibles or Home & Garden categories. Buyers also can face a similar issue when choosing which category to look in when browsing. As part of our continuing effort to help both buyers and sellers by giving items more exposure, we will be conducting random "second category" testing within the next few weeks.
During this temporary test, for those categories which may overlap significantly, a seller's listing may appear in the second category at no additional cost. Any second category will only be added after the listing has been fully submitted, regardless of listing method. If the seller chose to List in 2 Categories for an item where we would have added the second category for free, their L2C fee will be refunded.
We believe that this test will provide the following benefits for buyers and sellers:
-Sellers receive a listing in a second category at no additional charge, giving their item more exposure to buyers.
-Buyers can see more items that are relevant to the category they're browsing.
Sellers will see a small notation at the top of their item page if a second category was added. As this is just a limited test, the added categories may change often, and having a second category added for one listing does not guarantee it will be added for the next listing.
