There is a lot of grumbling around the net about the new policy. In order to retain Top Rated Seller Plus you must opt in. I decided to opt in because I want to keep my discounts as a Top Rated Seller and I don't normally get a lot of returns anyway. I'm hoping the policy won't be abused. I don't really see why it would be abused any more than a 30 day return policy.
The other thing that cemented my decision is that Amazon has the same return policy. This isn't just some crazy ebay idea. Amazon's Holiday Return Policy States
So yeah. There was a link to opt in immediately in a message I recently received from ebay so I went ahead and did it right away. It won't show up in my listings until November 1st but I'm hoping that ebay will give a boost in Best Match to people who opt in (you can always hope). Another reason I decided to do it.
What are your thoughts on Extended Holiday Returns? Have you are are you planning to opt in?
