One thought on “eBay Updates Item Specifics that Help Listings Get Found”

  1. Brilliant. It used to be if you were selling a polo shirt, you could list it in Sporting goods with several sub categories (knowing that you will lose some buyer’s searches who pick Clothing/ Men’s Shirts) and even when you do choose Men’s shirts, there are subcategories for Activewear, Polos, or Button-Down shirts. It was only last year the Polos subcategory was added, but there was something wrong with the item specifics there (I forget what) so I (and most others) never use that, but instead use Button Down Shirts which has an item specific for Polo/Rugby.
    So very recently the eBay genius added a 2nd item specific in addition to Polo/Rugby called Golf/Polo.
    The only remedy to this madness is to put as much relevant info as you can in the title and hope customers can zero in on it with their 1st search attempt. That’s not much of a remedy, but what else can you do?
