Surviving the new "My eBay"

Well January 15, eBay is getting rid of the usable "My eBay" and replacing it with their horrid new one that is completely unusable. Anyone know how to deal with this?

You gotta love the way that eBay "Fixes" things that are not broken.

So you guys have no idea, either.

I've found that the ebay sitemap can take over some of the features removed from the new "my ebay".

It really won't be that hard to use. Will take some getting used to - but won't be a huge issue.

Well I just got hit with this 4 hours ago!

I HATE IT! What a Nightmare!

Seems like the Ebay forums community hates it too, so maybe Ebay will offer a "opt out" link soon?

I always have a shortcut in my quick launch menu to go directly to "My Ebay Selling Manager Summary". I find this is much easier to look at and browse than the regular "My Ebay Summary"

No...

Your link takes you to the New "My eBay" Page which everyone hates that doesn't have an Opt Out function.

The link I have posted will take you to the regular "My eBay" Page, the one everyone used before yesterdays change.

That's weird. I click on your link and get the same page as my link. I didn't see any difference. Go figure.

Yes I am in the USA Ebay. I opted out of the new "my ebay" awhile back when they tried to get people to use it as beta test.

When I click on both your link and mines I still get the "We're working to make My eBay easier to use. Try out the beta!" Option link to click on. So I know I am definitely using the old ebay.

It is only when I click on the "My Summary" on the top left menu is when I get the New ebay that everyone hates.

That's why I only use the "My Ebay" tab on the top right to show the old ebay.

Don't worry about it TheyGotMeToo we will all be using the New one anyways.

Ah, Come-On...let me hold out a little bit of hope. LOL

I did get a response from my complaint letter, looks like it was personally written just for me. (ya right!)


Dear eBayer,

Thank you for writing eBay.

Unfortunately, the My eBay classic has been retired for good. I know
this is probably a hassle for you and apologize for the inconvenience
this has caused.

The most common questions about the new My eBay have been those asking
where familiar features are. In most cases, they have just been moved.
We have a FAQ link on the My

eBay Summary page that points to this FAQ post on the discussion board: eBay Forums: My eBay Features and FAQ ...

Please click the important links below:

This is the latest AB post: January 2009

FAQ discussion board: eBay Forums: My eBay Features and FAQ ...

User Guide Discussion board: eBay Forums: User Guide for the new My eBay ...


If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to reply to this
email and let us know.

Sincerely,
Layton S.

eBay Customer Support

eBays stock is really tanking today, part of it could be as a result of this beta change...maybe?

The new My eBay is less customizable than before. The "unanswered questions" shows awful in red even if you answered the customer's questions (e.g. regular email or they sent 3 questions and you answered it in one ebay messages), it hides a lot of the stuff the old one shows. It also refuses to show both sale date and days since sale.

The new My eBay, search, and item view are also even higher bandwidth and server heavy. A lot of our eBay fees go to eBay's bloated, high-bandwidth site. Very little goes to paying eBay staff to help us.
