I’m a bit slow on the draw this week, but for those you interested in all things eBay, my latest eBay Watch column has been published over on ECommerce-Guide.com. This week in eBay news, its updates to an iPhone application lets sellers view bidding and selling lists, eBay lingo explained, a new SHOPPING.com Facebook application, plus eBay message management improvements, and pure monkey business.
“‘This week eBay also started rolling out the previously announced changes to My eBay. To make message sorting easier, users will be able to better identify alerts, eBay messages and member messages. Alerts will be displayed at the top of the inbox in a separate section from other messages. Messages from eBay will be highlighted in green, while messages from other members will be in black.’
“‘In the next few months, members can also expect to see threading for member-to-member messages, so you can easily read entire conversations. The My eBay left-hand navigation has also been improved with common links being more visible in the new layout.’
