The Car-Part Scoop

New eBay Template Requirements

If you use an eBay Template designed by, please read this Scoop carefully. Your template may need to be changed.

Starting June 2017, eBay will limit the use of active content in all listings. This means that listings cannot require the customer to click for more information - all sales information must be visible when the listing is first loaded, without requiring a click to access (even if that click does not leave the listing itself).

Templates designed by in the past often featured clickable tabs so the customer could click on a tab for more information about a specific subject. For example, in the template pictured below, the customer viewing the listing would click on PaymentShipping, Warranty & ReturnsDefinitions, or Contact Us for more information on those topics. This is the type of functionality that will be limited beginning in June. If your eBay template was designed by prior to June 2016 and if it features clickable content like this, we will redesign your existing template, free of charge. All new and redesigned templates will automatically display all information without requiring a click.

If your eBay template was designed by prior to June 2016, we will be calling you before June 2017 to discuss redesigning your template. If you would like to talk to us sooner, or want more information, contact us at 859-344-1925 and ask to speak to a Web Designer. We look forward to talking with you!
