This is the hot story this morning. So eBay is tweaking the way search results show up. Is this a good thing? Is it defensive, as the Google and Yahoo references would suggest?
Is it bad? Will there be confusion? Will it take some time for people to get used to the new formats?
Personally, I’m anticipating the hover feature that allows buyers to preview shipping and handling charges quickly. Anything that speeds the buyers understanding of total costs and uncovers shipping shenanigans makes a lot of sense to me. Rapid transparency is key.
