Why We’re Making This Change

Improving our category structure, and the item specifics that buyers can use to search, creates a better experience on eBay. It also helps bring us more in-line with industry-standards, and can help more international buyers see your listings.

Next Steps

You don’t need to do anything. We’ll automatically move your listings to the category we think best fits the items you sell. 

We’d recommend you periodically review your listings and make sure they’re in the most relevant category.
