At eBay, we want to ensure our marketplace remains the number one destination for online shoppers. To do so, we’re continuing to strengthen our security measures to provide the most secure platform for both buyers and sellers.
As announced in 2017, we’re committed to providing the most secure platform so that eBay remains the number one destination for online shoppers.To do so, we required non-secure listings to be updated to HTTPS to ensure they’re secure and in line with industry standards.
For current non-secure listings, the disclaimer ‘Not secure’ is marked by browsers and also requires an additional click from buyers (one click away) to see the full item description.
Not secure disclaimer:
From July 2018, Google will be tightening its HTTPS protocols and measures. To ensure we’re in line with industry standards and to bring more buyers to you, all non-secure content will be flagged as ‘Not secure’ on Google Chrome browsers.
From late January 2019, all ‘new’, ‘relist’, ‘sell similar’ and ‘sell one like this’ listings created with non-secure content (HTTP) will be blocked from submitting unless updated to HTTPS. Current non-secure listings will continue to be displayed as ‘Not secure’ to buyers and require an additional click to view the full item description.
Ensure you make buyers feel confident and secure when shopping with you - update your listings now. Check here to see if you have any non-compliant existing listings that require updating to HTTPS.
