eBay warned sellers in the UK about changes it’s rolling out due to Google browser security requirements. Sellers who have dealt with the changes in the US have found it to be a painful experience, so UK sellers should make sure they understand what’s required of their listings. eBay UK will begin issuing warnings on Friday, and will begin abbreviating noncompliant listings beginning in February.
In response to new requirements by Google, we’re expanding the HTTPS communications protocol across eBay.
Protect your listings and make sure they’re secure by:
Using our tool to check which of your listings contain non-secure content
From 24 November to 8 December 2017, we’ll alert sellers with non-compliant listings as of 13 November. Keep an eye out for this temporary warning and update any highlighted listings accordingly.
From February 2018, we’ll display a short snippet of the item description for non-compliant listings. Full item descriptions will be one click away. This is to keep eBay secure and make sure your listings don’t display a browser security warning to buyers.
