Ebay... WTH is this?!



Has anybody been seeing this weird new version of ebay item pages on mobile devices when viewing the FULL site (not mobile version, which i despise)? Look to the left of the "Add to watch list button." It tells you how many other people are watching an item! This is absurdly horrible for sellers

Yeah that is so not cool. I had a consignor mention the other day that they were excited to see that there was 5 watchers on a item of theirs that I had listed and I was thinking "huh? how in the world can you see that"

Do. Not. Like.

Sometimes it's good though when you have an item with 75 watchers! Somebody just freaking buy it! Maybe it makes them less likely to just watch & pull the trigger!

I saw it last night on a few items but a couple hours later not on any others?? I am not sure but I agree it is awful for sellers. I never received a notification about this. Anyone else??

Disagree. Probably makes them think "all these watchers but no buyers... item must be PRICED TOO HIGH."

And nope, there has been no communication of this change from ebay at all

Wow weird. I recently received a message with a really low BIN BO saying "since I'm the only watcher, hopefully you will at least consider my low offer."I didn't think twice about it, and just assumed it was some new weird low ball tactic they just made up. :eyeroll

I still see it. I've seen it continuously since my post on Sat. Maybe because I never end my session
