There are a few substantive changes we've made, to help us keep our legal documents consistent with the ways our sites and services are evolving and to better meet the needs of our user community. Let me call out a few important ones here:
Changes to the User Agreement
Late Fee Withdrawal From PayPal After 180 Days Past Due. The vast majority of our sellers settle their balances on time or before 180 days. eBay will resort to a PayPal withdrawal only after the balance has been overdue 180 days and our other collection efforts have been unsuccessful. We believe this helps level the playing field for the rest of the sellers who pay their bills. Should eBay withdraw late fees, this will not alter the status of a seller's PayPal account or funds remaining after the withdrawal.
New Catalogue Services. The agreement's "Content" and "Liability" sections have been revised to accommodate new features that could give sellers catalogues of content and product descriptions, so they can easily include complete and up-to-date product information for the items they list.
Combating Fraud. We're increasing our efforts to combat fraud on the site with a variety of programs. We've made some changes that allow us to address "Ask a Question" and "My Messages" spam and other malicious activities using our message systems, or to better authenticate you if you're using an unfamiliar computer to prevent fraudsters from abusing your account. We're also making sure our disclosures about cooperating with law enforcement allow us to respond to increasingly sophisticated fraudsters and criminals.
Streamlining Services. We've heard your comments about how many steps it takes to complete a transaction or get customer support where multiple eBay companies are involved. We've made some changes to our Disclosure section that will help make your experience across the eBay Inc. platform as seamless as we can make it. These changes will, where appropriate, allow our Customer Support team to help you with questions that span our companies, and streamline your use of the services provided by multiple members of the eBay corporate family. Some of our new programs also mean you'll see eBay services and content in a lot of places (not just on the site), so we've made some changes to clarify where our policies apply.
Thank you for using eBay and we look forward to many more successful transactions!
