Selling Manager Pro - revising and relisting


Automate your listings to list and relist products automatically using your listing templates.

Using default description footers

Selling Manager Pro enables you to create and store default description footers (a standard return policy or packaging method, for example). You can add them to the end of your item description whenever you list an item. When you revise or relist an item, the description footer from your original item description is automatically included in the description. If you select the option to add a default footer, and already have a default footer in your original item, the footer will be appended to your description and you will have two copies of your footer information.

To set your description footer:
  1. Go to My eBay.

  2. Select the Account tab, and then click Site Preferences in the left hand navigation.

  3. In the Selling Preferences section, click the Show link next to Sell Your Item form and listings.

  4. In the Selling Manager Pro section, click Edit next to Include a custom description footer.

  5. Select the format for which you want to add a footer from the drop-down menu, and then type your message. You can write a different message for each format.

Tip: To create a different default description footer to your revised listing, manually delete the old default description footer from the Description section in the Revise Your Item page, and select the Default Description Footer check box.

Tracking inventory quantity

If you use Selling Manager Pro to track the quantity of a product, and you revise the quantity of the listing, you'll be notified on the Promote and Review Your Listing page if your revised quantity exceeds the product's available to list quantity. You'll also be provided with a link to update your quantity.

Using product and listing templates

If you revise or relist a product with a listing template, you'll find these options on the Promote and Review Your Listing page:

  • Submit Only – Selecting this option does not save the changes that you made to your listing template but continues tracking it with the listing template's success ratio.

  • Save edits to my current Selling Manager Pro listing template – Selecting this option saves the changes that you made to your listing template and continues tracking it with the listing template's success ratio.

  • Save edits to a new Selling Manager Pro listing template – Selecting this option creates a new template and tracks this item with the new template's success ratio.

  • If you are revising or relisting a product whose listing template no longer exists, only two options appear:

    • Save edits to a new listing – Selecting this option creates a new template and tracks this item with the new template's success ratio.

    • Save only – Selecting this option saves only the template.

  • If you revise or relist an item that is not associated with a product, the Promote and Review Your Listing page will be identical to the one for non-Selling Manager Pro subscribers. After you create a product, either in Selling Manager Pro or the Sell Your Item form, you can use the details to create a listing template based on that product.

Limitations on number of products and templates

A product cannot have more than 20 associated listing templates. Before you attempt to save a revised listing as a new listing template, be sure that you have fewer than 20 listing templates associated with your product. If you attempt to save a revised listing as a 21st template, your listing will be revised, but your listing template will not be saved.
