Using the advanced listing form

If you're a high volume seller, running a business or selling in bulk, the advanced listing form on eBay can simplify the creation and management of your listings.

Our new product-based shopping experience, powered by the eBay catalogue, groups all listings for the same product together to make it easier for buyers to find and buy what they want.

You'll need to use the catalogue to list items in certain categories. See Listing with the eBay catalogue to learn more.


You can find the advanced listing form in My eBay - opens in new window or tab or Seller Hub - opens in new window or tab.

If you're new to selling, or you just sell occasionally, use our quick listing tool - opens in new window or tab to create your listing in just a few minutes.

If you want to see more options in the quick listing tool, such as quantity, reserve price, duration and schedule listing, here's how to enable them:

  1. At the top of the listing form, select Change listing preferences.
  2. Tick the Enable more options box and Save.
  3. Select More options to view your additional listing options. 

If you still find you need more listing options, use the Switch to advanced tool link at the top of the listing page.

Once you've got some listings up and running, go to Seller Hub for all the tools you need to manage your eBay business.

Advanced listing form features

The advanced listing form has a range of features not included in the quick listing tool. Here are just some of those features:

  • Buyer requirements – Exclude buyers you don't want to do business with, such as those living in a country you don't post to
  • Subtitle – Display more information about your item in search results
  • Listing Designer – Achieve a professional appearance without HTML, including reusable text inserts for descriptions
  • Templates – Save as many as 10 listings to use as templates for future listings
  • Combined postage discounts – Create rules to apply postage discounts when items are combined
  • Lots – Sell multiple items to one buyer in just one listing
  • Visitor counter – Find out how much interest your listing is getting

Some listing features in the advanced listing form incur additional fees. You'll be able to see the fees listed in the tool and in the Review your fees section.

Use the advanced listing form when you've gained some selling experience and need more options than you find in the quick listing tool.
