eBay Seller Release: Good ‘Til Cancelled format available to all sellers

No primary category set

eBay GTC FormatFrom the 1st of November 2016, eBay are making the Good ‘Til Cancelled (GTC) listing format available to all sellers. Everyone will be able to list using the GTC listing format without any requirements such as having an eBay shop.

Benefits of Good ‘Til Cancelled listing

  • Longer item history: Use a GTC listing to build up item history over time, such as the number of watchers or your total items sold. Listings with longer item history may get better search visibility.
  • Building a reputation: Potential buyers can see how many items you’ve sold and the Feedback from those sales. This promotes trust and could drive repeat purchases.
  • Easier listings management: Your listings will never expire as long as you have the item in stock. That means more time to spend on other parts of your business and less time relisting.
  • Out-of-stock option: Keep the listing active even when all of the items are sold. This is ideal if you’re expecting to restock the item soon and you want to retain the item history.

You will of course be charged every 30 days as GTC listings renew.

  1. I just heard about this,
    It sounds like smaller sellers will win by having this feature… especially if they do not currently subscribe to an eBay shop.

  2. “Potential buyers can see how many items you’ve sold and the Feedback from those sales” makes it sound easy for a buyer to access feedback on a particular item, which it isn’t. Linking feedback to its listing would help both buyer and seller, much like threading Ebay messages would.

  3. GTC is nightmare..

    You appear to be lost in the best match search terms if it is listed more than 2 months..

    your best bet is to let the listing finish after 30 days then click sell similar (not relist) as eBay like new stuff.. promise you this will work better.

    Scanvengerlife podcasts reported that an eBay rep told them not to have listings over 3 months old.. just sell similar each 30 days to be clear of being lost in the search…
