    I have all my items listed as 1 day handling, but they're all custom made and it's getting to be a hassle. 2 day handling would be way more efficient to me, but does anyone know how much that would affect my SERP position? Thanks

    That won't affect your ranking.

    Dude, it will not even if you keep 15 days. but keeping it 15 days may affect your bounce rate and that have little impact on serp. but if u keep it 1 day or 2 days make no difference on bounce rate unless the items are of that nature, Lets say Flowers, cake etc

    so varying handling days may impact your conversion but not seo

    Ok, thanks. I was thinking it could be one of Ebay's factors in their own ranking algorithm, since 1-day handling qualifies for "Top Rated Plus" and 2-day handling doesn't.

    Could be. I thought you are talking about serp in our usual search engine. Now i got you. You meant ranking in ebay while you search for your product

    Yep. Ebay's SERP's :). I switched from 1-day to 2-day 9 days ago and so far I haven't noticed a drop in sales, so that's good.
