Add business information to remain compliant with European regulations

From early 2024, the Digital Services Act in Europe will require business sellers on platforms like eBay to include their contact details on listings for European buyers.

Starting from 1 October 2023, Australia Post updated scanning technology will identify inconsistencies between a seller's provided packaging details, parcel weight and size info, and the data detected by their systems during item processing.
