As eBay moves towards a more product-based shopping experience, sellers will start to list items using eBay's new catalogue feature. This will ensure your products get full visibility when a buy searches for your item.
This will begin in May 2018, items that will be in the 1st iteration of the new eBay catalogue are found at the bottom of this article.
- When creating a listing eBay will suggest matched products based on keywords or product identifiers you include in your listing's title or item specifics (if there is a match available).
- When you select the item you're selling from these matches eBay will automatically add the correct information and photos to your listing. This will help fill your listing out with the correct information and help buyers find what they're looking for more easily.
- You should only select suggestions that exactly match your product. If you select a product that's slightly different, such as a manufacture year or different specifications, you risk misleading your buyers. If there are no matches at all, then you should manually create your listing as normal.
- If you find an error or something that needs changing in a catalogue entry you can do this by either clicking the flag icon next to the production in question.
- Alternatively, if you spot inaccurate information in the eBay catalogue you can contact eBay support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Items that MUST be listed using eBays catalogue:
|iPhone (All Models/Generations)|
|iPad (All Models/Generations)|
|AM Cooling Fan|
|AM Fan Heater|
|Roku||Premier / Express / 1 / 2 / 3 / 4|
This requirement will apply to listings without variations in any item condition (e.g. new, used, refurbished). For items with multiple variations (multi-SKU) that are part of these product lines, sellers will be required to provide a Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) such as a UPC, ISBN, or EAN for each of the variations they are managing.
This article will be expanded on when there is more information released by eBay as we move further into 2018.
