Out of Stock feature now available to all sellers on eBay UK

In September, we covered the new out-of-stock option on eBay At the time it was only available to a small cohort of sellers, the good news is this tool is now available to all sellers.

eBay have announced the change here.

The tool is free to use on multi-quantity Good ‘Til Cancelled listings and will help safeguard feedback and help to protect sellers from associated defects. eBay have also updated the tool so any Good ‘Til Cancelled listing with a quantity of zero for an entire 30-day billing period may qualify for an insertion fee credit at the end of that period.

Here’s how eBay sellers can apply the out-of-stock option to Good ‘Til Cancelled listings:

1. Go to My eBay > Account > Site Preferences

2. Under Selling Preferences, click Show next to Sell Your Item form and listings

3. Click Edit next to Use the out-of-stock option

4. Select the checkbox, then click Apply

Once available, sellers can apply the new out-of-stock option directly from Selling Preferences in My eBay and can also opt-out at any time.
