Listing & Promoting

Discover more about the new item specifics changes. We’re adding new item specifics in some categories, and you'll also see some changes to category structures and item specifics names.

From October you’ll be able to send specific groups of people your customised coupon codes from Seller Hub.

As part of the expansion of the Promoted Listings portfolio, Promoted Listings will be rebranded to Promoted Listings Standard. You’ll also be introduced to the beta version of our new cost-per-click campaign type, Promoted Listings Advanced. This new version will give you preferred access to the top spot in search results, across eBay on desktop, mobile and on the eBay app.
