eBay Canada announced a tool to help sellers identify listings with missing Item Specifics, aka product attributes. It’s making the Optiseller Aspect Finder Tool available at no charge through the end of the year, though it didn’t specify how much it would cost beginning in January.
Optiseller is a third-party service from Scottish company Developing IT, though eBay Canada didn’t make that clear in Tuesday’s announcement. Earlier this year, eBay had recommended the tool to UK sellers.
eBay also announced on Tuesday that the tool would be available to Irish sellers, writing on the UK Announcement board that “Optiseller & eBay have been partners for a year now, and the tool has proved very helpful for sellers to meet new item specifics requirements. The Aspect Finder tool has now processed 67 million listings across around 5000 sellers from 26 countries selling into 5 markets.”
eBay Canada announcement follows:
As previously announced, we’re gradually introducing requirements for Item specifics that will help you stay ahead of the competition, improve your visibility, and drive conversion for your business.
Adding Item specifics to your existing listings can be time consuming, so we’re introducing the Optiseller Aspect Finder Tool to help you quickly identify and correct your existing listings that are missing key Item specifics.
Optiseller Aspect Finder is free of charge until 31 December 2019, so for the next few months, you can use the tool to automatically review your listings, identify which ones are missing required Item specifics and extract the information if it’s found elsewhere in the listing. You can then use the report to update your listings directly on eBay in bulk or through your listing tool.
