Category and item specifics changes on .com

No primary category set

Sellers who list on eBay.com need to be aware of some changes to categories and item specifics coming in March. The full details are on the Announcements Board (categories, item specifics), but in brief:

  • Art is being divided into two sections: Direct from the Artist, and Art from Dealers & Resellers. Subcategories which overlap with item specifics are being removed.
  • Unisex Children’s Clothing gets a new Athletic Apparel category.
  • Computers & Networking is being tidied up, with “easily searchable” brands-as-categories being removed.
  • Sporting Goods is a getting a fairly major reorganisation: more details
  • Toys & Hobbies has changes throughout, including increased visibility for Marbles. Seller-defined item specifics will replace the eBay ‘type of toy’ item specifics.
  • changes to item specifics in radio-controlled toys, r-c accessories, die cast toys, candles, candle holders and sheets.

If you’re using a third-party listing tool, make sure it’s been updated to reflect new categories and ISs.
