Looking over the update, there is not much that should shock eBay sellers or buyers.  The biggest news is that eBay has backtracked on forcing the use of their catalogue and are instead going to focus on improving the use of item specifics across the board.

The next most substantial updates are that buyers will be able to send sellers offers on certain eligible listings and that Buy it Now listings will just have the one duration of Good til Cancelled.

Nothing huge in this update to worry sellers, and no fee rises apart from the eBay motors category.
