Best Practices for Sellers
Get maximum exposure for your listings on the new eBay product pages and on search results pages
List or relist items with the eBay catalog whenever there's a match. That's what gets your listings on the product pages. Product pages have higher sell-through rates than search results pages.
Follow best practices outlined in Best Match Tipspaying special attention to pricing competitively and provide great customer service to keep your performance rating high.
Add your product to our database if product details are not available for your item. For sellers in some categories including GPS Devices, Printers, Hard Drives, MP3 Players, DVD Players, Televisions, Camera Lenses, Home Speakers and Subwoofers, eBay is making it faster and easier to add products. You see this option during the listing process.
Price competitively! Price is one of the main factors in determining the position of your listing on the product pages. Stay abreast of market prices for items and update prices as needed.
Offer free or discounted shipping. You can offer shipping discounts through the shipping calculator.
Achieve and maintain Top-rated seller status to be eligible for the value box.
Whenever possible, even if you can't list your item with the catalog, include unique product identifiers like UPC, GTIN, and ISBN. Buyers using these identifiers within eBay search, off-eBay search engines, and using mobile applications will be able to find your listing.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a product page and when does it appear?

Why does eBay have product pages?
When buyers search for popular products, they prefer to see matching results consolidated on one page. Product pages get higher sell-through rates than search results pages.
Are product pages used in all categories where product details are available?
Starting in September, this new shopping experience will appear in three popular categories—iPod & MP3 players, GPS devices, and DVDs.
Should I always list with the eBay catalog if there's a product match?
Yes! You should always list with product details from the eBay catalog whenever there’s an exact product match available.
How can I get my listings to show up on a product page?
To have your item appear on the product page, you need to list using product details in the Sell Your Item form, Turbo Lister, File Exchange, or the eBay Application Programming Interface.
Does my listing appear both on the product page and in the search results list that appears below the product boxes?

How does eBay determine the list price of a product?
We obtain the list price by comparing a variety of sources including manufacturer's web sites, online retail sites, and Internet search engines to show the highest price (excluding shipping and handling fees) for that product in new condition. We update the list price bimonthly and all items are subject to availability.
Are bundle listings eligible for the value box on the product page?
If you are an eBay Top-rated seller, bundle listings are eligible for the value box, but will be compared to non-bundled listings since the valuation of bundled products vary significantly.
What about items in these categories that are sold out in stores and command a higher market price than the list price?
When an item is priced above the list price, the savings off the list price will not appear.
