Here's the announcement from the eBay Announcement Board:

2017 Summer Seller Update

In the 2017 Summer Seller Update, we're making changes to help you increase your sales by creating a better experience for buyers.
 
Starting in June
Listing Policy Updates

Updates to communications, allowable links, image catalog, and listing best practices to improve site performance for a stronger eBay marketplace.

- Beginning in June 2017, eBay will no longer support active content.

- Buyers and sellers should use eBay Messaging to communicate. Listings and other eBay pages can no longer contain contact information such as email, phone numbers, and social media links effective September 2017

- Starting in September  2017, we will update our links policy to limit the types of links and domains permitted in listings.
 
Coming this summer
Returns

We're increasing exposure of free 30-day and 60-day returns to buyers starting this summer. New opportunities will include:

- Giving buyers options to search for and filter free 30-day and 60-day returns.

- Highlighting free returns policies when buyers visit your listings.

- eBay marketing campaigns that feature the best returns policies.
 
Effective August 1, 2017
International Performance Standards

Starting August 1, 2017, only transactions with buyers in the countries included in the Global region (countries outside the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany) will count toward your seller performance rating in the Global region.
 
Beginning June 13, 2017
Category and Classification

We will release category, item specifics, and catalog updates starting on June 13, 2017. Changes will include additions, removals, and renames in several eBay categories.

Thanks for posting that, as I just set up an eBay shop about a month and half ago. Just made my first sale there tonight. After going through this transaction and seeing the process of paypal payment and such, I'll probably add more items to sell for the Christmas season.

Ho Ho Ho

And you get your $$$ immediately with Paypal/eBay.
I can help if you'd like with suggestions for social media to bring hits/searches/draw customers to your specific ebay store.
You also can see how many times your items are receiving.

Christmas In July Sales = Ho Ho Ho!

I will remember that. I'm building up slowly but will get some of my Christmas stuff on there as well as Amazon.
