Your listings are your window to millions of potential buyers on eBay. Find out how to turn good listings into great listings.
Choose the right category
The best way to make sure your listing appears in the right place is to use the eBay catalogue. When you first start selling on your computer or on the eBay app, you’ll be asked what it is you want to sell. As you start typing, you’ll see suggestions of items that match your keywords.
If you see a match with the item you’re trying to sell, select Sell one like this and we’ll fill in all of the right item specifics for you. You can still write your own description, set the condition of your item and add your own photos afterwards.
If you do not find a match, or if you’re selling something unusual or unique that’s not covered by our catalogue, you can select your category manually with Browse categories and choosing from our full list. If you’re not sure which category to choose, have a look at what categories other sellers have chosen when selling similar items.
