Important: From 30th April, this page will be updated with details of improvements made to the category structure.

June 2019

We’ll release updates to our category structure from 10th June 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.
