Ebay Banning Digital Product Sales

By Kenny Tran

This is quite a big news for those who is earning a living or just some pocket money from selling digital product on Ebay.

Hello...This is Brian Burke, Director Global Feedback Policy.

Digital goods are often reproduced at little to no cost to the seller.

On eBay, this creates the potential for Feedback Manipulation (both real and perceived).

To preserve the integrity of the Feedback system, effective March 31 all goods that can be digitally downloaded or transferred electronically must be listed using the Classified Ads format.

Using the Classified Ads format, sellers receive a 30-day ad at a fixed price.

This solution enables sellers to continue to market their digital goods on eBay; however, because Classified Ad listings are a lead generation tool and do not result in transactions that go through eBay, Feedback cannot be exchanged between buyer and seller.

Yes, no more selling digital products on Ebay from Mar 31 onwards.

Thus, if you're considering some book or ebooks about making money with Ebay, make sure that it won't just cover digital selling only.
