With today’s announcement that there are more category and Item Specific changes to come, sellers need an easy way to find out which Item Specifics are mandatory in the categories they’re going to list in. This becomes especially important for sellers who don’t use eBay tools such as the Sell Your Item form or TurboLister but instead choose to create product feeds to upload to eBay.
The categories and Item Specifics that will change on the 22nd August are Computing, Consumer Electronics, Jewellery & Watches, Mobile & Home Phones and Vehicle Parts & Accessories. Previously announced Item Specific changes are due to be enforced Clothing, Shoes & Accessories from the 20th July (next week).
