Category Changes: eBay Motors

September 2014

Please check the table below to see if the categories you sell in are changing. If we are making a change to your category, please make sure your current listings are updated with all relevant item specifics -- this ensures your items are moved to the best possible category in the case where categories are going away. Occasionally we ask you to adopt a value in an item specific to help us facilitate moving your item to the correct surviving or newly created category. We offer additional item specifics recommendations for optimal search visibility as well. After the changes are live, please review your listings again.

  • For each category shown to the left, please use the newly added Seller Tag named "Type" to provide additional classification information. This information is used to move the best new category added during this category rollout.
  • Please note Automotive Tools & Supplies > Battery Testers > Chargers > Chargers & Jump Starters (category ID 179471) no longer supports parts compatibility listings.
