Feb. 14, 2023 – eBay Motors introduces Guaranteed Fit, a program where Your car, truck, and motorcycle Parts & Accessories listings now have enhanced fitment functionality and returns protections for items that don't fit. An added “Fits your vehicle” checkmark will give buyers more confidence and trust that their purchases will fit their vehicles.
How it works
When a buyer searches for a part or accessory using their vehicle details, we’ll check their details against the fitment compatibility table in your listings and only show items that fit the buyer’s vehicle details. If the buyer purchases an eligible part or accessory, indicated by a green “Fits your vehicle” checkmark in the listing, but the part doesn’t fit, eBay will cover the return shipping costs.
eBay Guaranteed Fit benefits to sellers
Fewer returns. As buyers learn to provide vehicle fitment details to return better item matches in their search results, the risk of potential returns due to incorrect fitment is reduced. Buyers get a free return label. In the unlikely event that a buyer needs to return an item because it doesn’t fit, eBay will pay for return shipping.
Categories eligible for eBay Guaranteed Fit protections
Most items in the Car & Truck category and Motorcycle category are covered by protections with the exception of tires and wheels. More categories will be added in the future. For items to be eligible, you must add compatibility information to your items that are listed in eligible categories. Learn more about parts compatibility listings.

February 12, 2023 -- The operators Orange, Telefónica, Deutsche Telekom (DT) and Vodafone will create a common digital advertising platform in Europe designed to consider the explicit consent of consumers on the use of their personal data. Orange explained in a statement on Friday, after the European Commission gave its approval to this new subsidiary in which each of the partners will have a 25% stake, that "this solution should benefit consumers, advertisers and publishers at the same time".
The company, which will be headquartered in Belgium and managed by "an independent management" under the supervision of a administrative board appointed by the four operators, is designed from the start to mix European data protection rules, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the ePrivacy directive. The GDPR has developed into a model for many other laws across the world, including in Turkey, Mauritius, Chile, Japan, Brazil, South Korea, South Africa, Argentina and Kenya. As of 6 October 2022, the United Kingdom retains the law in identical form despite no longer being an EU member state. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), adopted on June 28th, 2018, has many similarities with the GDPR.
Per Orange's presentation, users will have to provide explicit consent to authorize advertisers to send their communications to them through publishers and will be able to rescind in a single click. The only information companies will share will be a unique digital code derived from the mobile or fixed network subscription that will be anonymized with a pseudonym. This will allow brands and publishers to recognize users, group them into different categories and tailor their content to specific groups, according to their advertising objectives.
Users will be able to make permission arrangements either directly on the brands' or publishers' websites, or on a dedicated portal specifically for privacy protection, which the French company asserts to be "easily accessible". The objective is to offer "a great improvement in the control, transparency and protection of consumer data" that is now collected, dispersed, and stored on a substantial scale by non-European firms.
Per the European Commission, the establishment of this company "will not significantly reduce competition in the French, German, Italian and Spanish markets". This includes the provision of digital identification services for targeted advertising and site optimization purposes, the retail provision of mobile telecommunications services or the retail provision of fixed Internet access services. The Commission also sees no danger to competition in the retail provision of audiovisual services and the supply of online advertising space.
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Jan. 2023 -- Flu and COVID and RSV, oh my! Staying on the road to good health doesn't have to be scary. A new print and digital media campaign, Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) encourages its patrons to take their best shot at health and wellness this season by getting their annual flu vaccine.
Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) is one of the top 10 largest Medicaid health plans and the largest not-for-profit Medicare-Medicaid plan in the country. In its 26th year, IEHP is supporting more than 1.6 million residents in Riverside and San Bernardino counties who are enrolled in Medicaid or Cal MediConnect Plans.
The campaign will reach Inland Empire residents through commercials on local television stations, radio spots, community outreach and social media posts, guiding them to IEHP's website for vaccine information and details.
"No one wants to be slowed down in 2023," said IEHP Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Takashi Wada. "This campaign is to serve as a reminder that staying healthy and well can be as easy as stopping by a vaccine clinic or checking in with your primary care physician."
The campaign began in winter 2022 and will run through spring 2023. "The flu isn't unique to a particular time and the flu vaccine can protect you throughout the year. Like the COVID-19 vaccine, it can also substantially reduce symptoms in case you do contract it."
To receive a free flu vaccine, residents in Riverside County can visit ruhealth.org/flu. Residents in San Bernardino County can visit dhp.sbcounty.gov to find free local clinics. Flu vaccines are always free for IEHP members. To learn more, visit iehp.org.
