Starting September 10, listing these items with the catalogue will be required whenever there's an exact match. Only items listed with the catalogue can qualify to be featured in the value box on top of the product page.
Continue updating your listings to meet the new picture quality requirements. Your listings will benefit immediately and, starting in October, you won't be able to submit a listing that doesn't have at least one picture.
US Top Rated sellers: Update any eBay.com listings that don't yet offer 1-day handling and minimum 14-day returns with money-back option. Starting in September, only listings from Top Rated sellers that offer both of these services will be displayed with the new Top Rated Plus badge.
Several categories will also be discontinued in the first week of September.
Week of September 24: Upload and share photos through My Messages. No need to share your personal email address or use a third party photo sharing service to send buyers additional photos of an item. Learn how.
Use a handy new tool on eBay.com to easily combine variation listings—for example, 8 listings of the same shirt available in different sizes and colors—into one multi-variation. You'll save on fees, help more buyers find your listings, and help boost your average order size. You can also add more variation details and more easily update these listings even after a sale.
Last chance to make sure all your listings have a picture. Starting this month, you'll no longer be able to list, relist, or revise listings that don't have at least one picture.
Make sure your listings all include a valid postal code. This month, eBay will start auto-completing city and province from the postal code in your listing.
Add more detail about your item's condition in the new item condition notes field starting the week of October 22. Your comments will be prominently displayed near the top of the Item page to set the right buyer expectations about the condition of your used items.
New safeguards for sellers are now in place. eBay.com buyers are required to contact you first through member-to-member communications before opening a buyer protection case. Just having a case opened is no longer a factor in evaluating your performance.
