eBay Warns UK Sellers about Google Browser Requirements


eBay logoeBay 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.

Announcement follows:

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.

  1. Hey UK sellers, IT AIN’T ANY BIG DEAL.

    Just call CS and ask them to help you. They will tell you want line of code to delete and you can just use notepad. Bring up all your auctions for editing. You can then just change all the auctions in the item description. Ebay helped us to fix over 15000 items and it took all of maybe an hour when they helped us.

    Don’t let the SKY IS FALLING PEOPLE scare you. It ain’t no big deal.
