We don't have to be patient and don't patronize people by saying it's technologically complicated. That's a bunch of turd polishing. Any web developer knows you always create a clone of the previous data and you test it prior to release.
***From Chris Tsakalakis -- More Exposure for Store Inventory Listings***
February 13, 2006 | 03:03PM PST/PT
Hi everyone. Many of you will remember Bill Cobb’s letter a few weeks ago, in which he mentioned the upcoming increase in exposure for Store Inventory listings. Starting this week, all matching Store Inventory listings will display at the end of the main eBay search on eBay.com and on eBay Motors. Store sellers will see increased exposure for their Store Inventory items, and buyers will see more qualified listings every time they search. As Bill said, it’s a win/win.
For example, if you search on “bow tie”, you’ll see all the normal auction and Fixed Price listings as you did before. But now you’ll also see all Store Inventory listings matching “bow tie” listed at the end, regardless of how many auction or Fixed Price listings were found. Similar to today, listing upgrades such as Gallery and Bold will not be shown for Store Inventory listings, unless no auction or Fixed Price items are found – then the upgrades will be shown.
This is a large, technologically-complicated launch, and it might take some time for these extra results to appear consistently. Over the next few days, these Store Inventory listings may appear off and on, and we’ll provide updates on this board if needed.
