Category Changes

May 2023

We’re releasing updates to our category structure on May 16th to provide a more intuitive buying, selling, and search experience.

  • With these changes, your listings will automatically appear in the relevant categories, and 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 specifics that you provided.
  • Aligning categories across international eBay sites will make cross-country trading easier.

Please note that category structure changes may result in pricing fee adjustments.

If your items are moved to a new category with different final value fees, they will adopt the final value fees of that new category. Insertion fees and optional listing upgrade fees will also be based on the new destination category.

For changes in the final value fee, please note: The changes to specific category structures may result in a pricing fee change.

For more information on selling fees, please refer to our selling fees article.

Oh goody.
