Changes to our category structure: What this means for you
From today, we’re implementing changes to our category structure to provide a more intuitive buying, selling and search experience. These changes should ensure that your listings appear in the relevant categories and buyers will find it quicker and easier to discover your items.
Find out more about which categories are impacted, and what this means for your listings and fees.
Launched: Payment holds for low tracking compliance
From yesterday, Monday 11 October, eBay began holding funds for sellers who are Below Standard or rated ‘Very High’ in their Item Not Received Requests in their service metrics.
Note: This applies to transactions where a seller has specified a tracked service in the item listing. Your payments will be released quicker if you upload valid tracking. If you’re using an untracked service to send your item, please ensure you specify this on your listings as tracking holds won’t be applied to these transactions.
This Spring, the Seller Update was written in collaboration with eBay sellers.
See what they have to say about the changes.

Impact of Cyclone Seroja in Western Australia
The recent cyclone in Western Australia may have affected your eBay business. We’ve implemented measures to protect you whether you are a seller based in or posting items to buyers in Western Australia.
