Required and Recommended Item Specifics
We’ve analysed searches and sales across millions of listings to uncover the most important item specifics for each category.
From 30 September, listings in some Home & Garden, Food & Drinks and Fashion categories will need to include all required item specifics. This applies to new, relisted, and revised listings.
We’ll continue to automatically renew your Good ‘Til Cancelled listings without item specifics. However, we recommend that you add this information as soon as possible so your listings continue to perform well in search results.
Going forward, we’ll gradually introduce required item specifics for more categories. We’ll make sure to give you plenty of time to add this information to your listings. Still, we strongly suggest that you take the time to add recommended item specifics to your listings before we require them for your category.
We’re also using this information to better understand and showcase your products.
