eBay Active Content Ban - Improving User Experience
eBay have announced that as of June 2017, they will be enforcing an active content ban on their internet shopping platform.
The main reason behind this change lies in the need to create an excellent user experience. It will help to make eBay mobile friendly and will create listings that load faster.
eBay have said of the change: “This is to help make sure your listings perform optimally on mobile devices, improving the shopping experience and helping you sell more”. This is especially important for modern-day shoppers, as it allows people to perform searches and make purchases quickly and easily using smartphone devices.
It will also work to create better site security, giving shoppers more confidence in the platform.
