eBay jobs for your to do list

It’s almost time to shut up the warehouse and head home for the Christmas break, but eBay have a couple of updates you’ll either want to get on top of over the holiday period, or jump on as soon as you return in the New Year.

Product Identifiers

eBay announced back in November that they’ll be requiring Product Identifiers for multi-variation listings in eligible categories. The deadline is still a month away, but after the 31st of January, if you haven’t updated your listings then you won’t be able to relist them.

The requirement applies to new, revised or manually relisted listings for new or manufacturer refurbished items in the following categories: Baby; Books, Comics & Magazines; Business, Office & Industrial; Cameras & Photography; Clothes, Shoes & Accessories (shoes only); Computers/Tablets & Networking; DVDs, Films & TV; Health & Beauty; Home, Furniture & DIY; Mobile Phones & Communication; Music; Musical Instruments; Pet Supplies; Sound & Vision; Sporting Goods; Toys & Games; Vehicle Parts & Accessories; and Video Games & Consoles.

“Promote your listings” adverts

eBay recently added the Crafts, Garden & Patio, Health & Beauty and Pet Supplies categories to those eligible for the Promote Your Listings feature.

Other eligible categories include: Baby, Cameras & Photography, Clothes, Shoes & Accessories, Computers/Tablets & Networking, Home Furniture & DIY, Jewellery & Watches, Mobile Phones & Communication, Sound & Vision, Sporting Goods, Toys & Games, Video Games & Consoles.

Promote your listings enables you to create ad campaigns to promote your best listings in prominent locations on eBay where buyers are actively shopping for related items. Where and when your ads appear is based on factors like your chosen ad rate and the relevance of your item to a buyer’s search.
