eBay Makes It Easier with Three New Ways for Sellers to Send Offers to Buyers
Sellers can now send offers to buyers with an exclusive discount.
Systems and methods for managing a multi-listing combined offer are provided. A networked system receives an indication to add a combination of items from multiple sellers into a virtual cart. In response, the networked system causes presentation of a user interface showing a combination of items from multiple sellers. The networked system receives, from the buyer, a buyer offer price for the combination of items. In response, the networked system accesses, from a data storage, item information for each item of the combination of items, whereby the item information includes a seller identifier, an original item price, and shipping cost for each item. The networked system then generates, based on the accessed item information and the buyer offer price, a split offer price for each seller, whereby the split offer price is a split of the buyer offer price. The split offer price is then presented to each corresponding seller.
A system and method of determining whether to make an item listing visible to a user are disclosed. A user is enabled to navigate an e-commerce site. A returns frequency index is calculated for the user based on the user?s transaction history. The user?s transaction history includes the user?s history of item returns. It is determined whether or not to make an item listing visible to the user on the e-commerce site based on the returns frequency index for the user. In some embodiments, the returns frequency index is calculated using the mathematical expression (VRet/NRet)/(VPurch/NPurch), wherein VRet is a total value of items returned by the user, NRet is a total number of items returned by the user, VPurch is a total value of items purchased by the user, and NPurch is a total number of items purchased by the user.
