eBay UK Seller Release: Category & Item Specific Changes

By Chris Dawson August 12, 2014 - 1:04 pm

From 15 September eBay will be to make it easier to shop on eBay UK. At the same time they are also adding new item specifics to align some categories across European sites, making it easier to sell
internationally. eBay say that they are making these changes based on research and seller feedback.

Of course we know that category changes inevitably mean updating your Item Specifics, and new Item Specifics will need to be manually completed as well. There’s never a good time for eBay to make changes like this, but thankfully the date is well ahead of the Christmas selling period so the only advice we can give you is to get your listings updated as soon as possible after the changes. Your competitors will probably lag behind so it will give you a short term selling advantage.

The affected categories are:

Business, Office & Industrial Cameras & Photography Computers/Tablets & Networking
Crafts Dolls & Bears Garden & Patio
Holidays & Travel Home, Furniture & DIY Jewellery & Watches
Musical Instruments Sporting Goods Toys & Games
Vehicle Parts & Accessories
