Category changes

October 2019

We will release updates to our category structure from 15th October 2019. This is to provide a more intuitive buying, selling and search experience.

  • These changes should ensure that your listings appear in the relevant categories. Buyers will find it quicker and easier to discover your items - especially on mobile devices.
  • When the category structure changes, your listings may be automatically moved to another category, based on the item specifications that you provided.
  • Aligning categories across international eBay sites will make cross-country trading on the eBay sites easier.

Find out if any of the high-level categories or subcategories you are currently listing in are affected.
