Everything changes : eBay listings now editable

No primary category set

The eBay Developers’ Blog has confirmed that changes to allow sellers to edit just about any part of their listing, even after it’s had a sale, are now live.

Price, description and postage costs can now be revised, as can just about any other aspect of a fixed price multiple item listing, with the exceptions of title, format, duration and category. (Why not title and category, I ask myself, but we’ll let that go: being able to change the description and the shipping costs is a crucial and superb development.) Buyers who’ve already bought from the listing will be able to view the previous version.

I’d really like to echo the Dev Blog’s call for developers to take advantage of this. Tools that would – for example – easily find and update all listings missing a returns policy, or all listings that don’t offer special delivery as a shipping option, or which have your old email address in the PayPal field, would make sellers’ lives a thousand times easier. There’s an opportunity for someone here to make a truly great listing tool – at last.
