eBay Has a Buyer Abuse Department

eBay has a buyer abuse department and it is located in Sandy Utah.

Yes it does. No I am not lying and it is not April Fools Day.

The Buyer Abuse Department is looking for a head.

I bet you didn’t know that eBay is safe for sellers. Yes it is, and they are going to keep it that way.

You can just dump your cause of sense of insecurity in transactions right now. Hear? Show some can do attitude.

“The Manager, Buyer Abuse policy keeps eBay safe for sellers by managing eBay’s programs to combat abusive buyers. Unreasonable and unscrupulous buyers can cause a seller to lose transactional value, time, effort, and cause of sense of insecurity in transactions.  Bad buyers undermine eBay’s efforts to improve seller performance.”

The job requirements are interesting.

  • “Some familiarity with Baysian probability” may not mean what you think it does. It is a mathematical or statistical theory which (in brief) enables reasoning with uncertain statements. For eBay that makes sense. Really.
  • “Ability to analytically make and present cost/benefit decisions that drive policy” will fill eBay sellers with confidence. Are there cost benefits to eBay in shutting down bad buyers?
  • “Strong desire and ability to connect with eBay customers to understand their needs and concerns” Sounds good anyway!

So, as we say on eBay. What do you think about them apples?

Y’all come back!


eBay is also looking for a Senior Buyer Abuse Manager to be based in San Jose.

“Success will be measured by improvement in seller sentiment and increased buyer abuse detection and action rates. The role will be high profile within our seller community.”
