Revising multiple listings or templates on eBay
In this article
In this article


You can revise multiple listings or templates at the same time (in bulk) in My eBay. You can also send fixed price listings to online auctions, relist items, or sell similar items in bulk. What you can revise in a listing depends on the type of the listing, the time left before it ends, and whether you have received any bids or sales. Find out more about restrictions on revising listings.

Understanding the page layout

You'll see your information displayed in a table (like a spreadsheet), with rows, columns, and cells.

What are rows, columns and cells?
Each listing you edit is contained in a row

Similar information is grouped into columns—for example, there is a column for Quantity.

The intersection of a row and a column is a cell. For example, each listing has its quantity contained in a cell. You can edit the information in some cells just by clicking in them and typing.

Sorting your listings
By default, your listings are sorted alphabetically by title. You can change the sort order by clicking the column headings at the top of the table. For example, click Starting Price at the top of the table to sort your listings by starting price.

Find out how to change the sort order.

Making revisions

To edit multiple listings:
  1. Click My eBay at the top of any page and sign in.

  2. Click the All Selling link.

  3. Select the listings you want to revise, and then click the Edit button.

You'll see a table, like a spreadsheet, that shows information about each listing you're editing

You can revise some information directly in the table. If you want to make other changes, click the Edit button for a list of options.

Making revisions directly in the table
You can revise some things by changing them right in the table, like the Starting price or Buy It Now price. If there are cells that you can't edit, the information displays in a lighter, gray color.

To revise directly in the table:
  1. Click the cell you want to edit.

  2. Enter the new information.

  3. Press the Tab or Enter key.

    Note: These changes won't be final until you click the Submit all button.

Using keyboard shortcuts

Like other spreadsheets, you can navigate the table using keyboard shortcuts:

  • Arrow keys: Use to select options in a drop-down menu or move around the table.

  • Page up and page down: Navigate through pages in your table.

  • Ctrl + Home: Go to the top left cell in the table.

  • Ctrl + End: Go to the bottom right cell in the table.

  • Tab: Move to the next cell in the row.

  • Shift + Tab: Move to the previous cell in the row.

  • Esc: Exits a cell without saving your changes.

  • Ctrl + C: Copy selected text.

  • Ctrl + X: Cut selected text.

  • Ctrl + V: Paste selected text.

Using the Edit button
If you want to revise something and you can't do it directly in the list, use the Edit button.

To use the Edit button:
  1. Select the listings (rows) you want to edit by selecting the check boxes next to them.

  2. Click the Edit button at the top of the table.

  3. Choose what you want to edit from the drop-down menu.

  4. In the pop-up menu, select if you want to edit your listings in bulk or individually.

  5. Make the changes you want.

  6. Once you're done, click the Save and close button.

    Note: These edits won't be final until you click the Submit all button.

Removing rows from the table

If there are listings you don't want to see in your table, you can remove them. If you remove the listings, you will lose your changes.

Note: Removing rows from a table doesn't remove those listings from the site.

To remove listings from the table:
  1. Select the listings you want to remove by selecting the check boxes next to them.

  2. Click the Action button at the top of the table.

  3. Choose Remove listings from the drop-down menu.

Filtering by errors or warnings

On the page, above the table, you can see a list of the errors or warnings that affect your listings. In the table, if a listing has an error or warning, an icon displays next to the listing.

  • An error is indicated with a red exclamation point. Errors must be fixed before you can submit your listings.

  • A warning is indicated by a yellow flag. Warnings give you important information about your listings or templates, and we recommend you make any applicable changes before you submit your listings.

You can filter your listings to see only those with errors or with warnings or both.

  • To see only listings with a certain warning, select the check box next to that warning. Your list will filter to show only these listings.

  • To see only listings with a certain error, select the check box next to that error. You can select more than one check box at a time.

Note: You can clear all the check boxes by clicking the Clear filters link at the top of the list of errors and warnings.

Display errors or warnings for a listing
Each listing with an error or a warning will have the error or warning icon next to its title. To see the error or warning, click the + sign next to that row.

Reviewing your changes

Once you're finished making your changes, and before you submit them, you can review them.

Reviewing your changes:
  1. Select the check box next to each listing you want to review,

  2. Click the Action button at the top of the table.

  3. Select what you want to do from the drop-down menu.

    • Select Review additional fees to see what fees (if any) your edits will result in.

    • Select Review changes to see a summary of all the edits you've made.

    • Select Cancel changes to cancel all the edits you've made to the selected listings.

Changing how the table is displayed

Resizing the columns
You can change the width of any column on the page. To do this, click on the right edge of the column header—the first cell of the column containing the title—and drag the column to the width you want.

You can also change what information you see in the table by customizing it.

Changing the columns that are shown:
  1. Click the Customize link at the top of the table.

  2. To remove a column, click the column name in Columns to display and click the left arrow.

  3. To add a column, click the column name in Available columns and click the right arrow.

  4. To change the order of the columns, choose the column you want to move in Columns to display and click the up or down arrows. Moving a column up the list moves it to the left on the table.

In addition, you can change the way your table is sorted.

Changing the sort order:
  1. Click the Customize link at the top of the table.

  2. Select the default sort you want.

  3. Once you're done, click the Apply changes button.
