Updated item condition now available on relists

No primary category set

If you’re relisting items on eBay you will now be presented with the opportunity to select the new updated Item Condition options in certain categories.

Rather than the simple “New” or “Used” options there are a host of new Item Specifics such as “Manufacturer Refurbished”, “For parts or not working”, New with/without box” and “New with defects”. These will vary per category but eBay have provided a full list of the you trade in.

Note to eBay: “Existing” has an “s” in it 😉

  1. They have messed it up in the jewellery category.
    Instead of New which was straightforward, they now have new with tags or new without tags. Perhaps they think it is clothing.
    Fine jewellery does not come with tags, although costume jewellery may. It can however come with branded packaging which of course is not an option.
    So what do you go for: ‘new with tags’ which sounds stupid or ‘new without tags’ which sounds like it should have had tags originally.

  2. …and when (if ever) does Turbo Lister get the update so it can be done in bulk rather than one at once… because one edit at a time is no good to me.

  3. I checked a few of my current/old GTC listings, and found that alot are now missing any condition categorization. It would not be the 1st time this has happened with wholesale upgrades. Now I have to spend more hours correcting old listings.

    The new categories for clothing are not an improvement. Very disappointing, after the time I took to put what it should have been on the online survey. Also all the item specifics are screwed still for clothing…e.g. there is not a separate section for suit jackets (it lumped in with suits, causing a % of buyers who want a suit to buy a jacket). Another is for suits – they allow and indeed display suit sized as “S, M, L, XL, XXL” – when have you ever gone into a shop and said “I would like a Large suit please” – suits are only sized as chest sizes. I have only ever had 1 USA customer ask for a suit this way in 5 years, and then he bought based on the chest size. There are lots of examples of this in the clothing category, and it wears thin when we are being assessed on “item as described”, when we are being given inferior tools. It like telling Louis Hamilton to race in the GP without a set of tyres. Hmmmm
