We’re making category updates to provide a more intuitive buying, selling, and search experience on eBay. Category updates including new additions, removals, merging and the renaming of categories will come into effect 13 June 2018.
If you have a listing in an affected category, we'll automatically move your listing to the most relevant category. Categories where we'll be making changes include:
To help buyers find your products faster and more easily, we encourage you to list your item in the single most relevant category rather than multiple categories. This will ensure that the most accurate and helpful search results are returned in buyers’ searches.

If your listings are affected by any of the changes, we'll automatically move them to the next most relevant category. Once your listing has been moved, we recommend that you review it and make sure the item specifics are relevant and up to date.
In cases where the original category has merged with a category with different fees, you'll be charged the insertion fees and advanced listing upgrade fees for the original category until the listing ends. Final value fees for the new, merged category will apply. Find out more about eBay selling fees.
