We will release updates to our category structure from 16th May 2023. This is to provide a more intuitive buying, selling and search experience.
Find out if any of the high-level categories or subcategories you’re currently listing in are affected.
Please note that changing the category structure in the affected categories might result in a change in the pricing fees in these categories.
Item specifics allow you to highlight important details about your item. They are displayed within your listing’s description, showing buyers relevant information about your item in an easy-to-read format. Adopting the item specifics on your listings helps buyers find your items and typically results in an increase in bids per listing and an increase in sales per listing.
All categories on all eBay sites allow you to create your own item specifics, but for maximum visibility to buyers, we recommend that you use the eBay-suggested item specifics whenever possible.
Generally speaking, when your item(s) is moved to a new category with different final value fees, it will adopt the final value fees of that new category. Insertion fees and optional listing upgrade fees will be based on the new destination category and will be charged as part of the category moves. Any changes in final value fees will apply when the item(s) sell.
