Whatever Happened to 'Want it Now'?

Does anybody out there know what happened to this feature?

I have asked eBay about it, and all they will say is that it's just "no longer available" and that "no one can use it".

Thus, it's not surprising to see 'wanted' ads popping up in the selling section now.

I don't know why they took this feature away, but I'm suspecting it's because they have been losing business because buyers and sellers may have been arranging trades privately (without listing the items on eBay).

 

Thoughts/theories?

Yes, and also there were a few things asked for that wouldn't meet eBay policies.

"Want" sections do encourage private trade.
