Over the past few days we have begun deploying a few new things for sellers on the Marketplace to gear up for an announcement later this week. One feature is a new option for sellers to import their eBay listings into the NSB Marketplace, where previously we only imported a sellers feedback.
The second feature we deployed is a requirement now that all sellers have a Business Verified or Premier PayPal account. This is something that originally should of been deployed some time ago. A fundamental problem is when a seller has an unverified account we are unable to process the transaction, while to seasoned members would simply send a PM, people who find the listing from Google or Facebook aren't perhaps keen to how that works.
So in order to create a solid buying experience for peoples first visit on the marketplace we knew this had to be implemented.
