Revise a listing

You can usually make changes to your eBay listings, but there are some restrictions depending on what you want to change and when. There's no fee to revise a listing unless you add a special feature.

We've made some changes around which fields are required and recommended for your listings. See the Item Specifics section of our Create a listing page for more information.


To revise a listing, select the button below:

Revise your listing - opens in new window or tab

You can revise your listings any time in My eBay, here's how:

  1. In Selling Activity - opens in new window or tab, find the listing you'd like to revise.
  2. Select Revise from More actions.
  3. Make your changes, then select Revise it to save the updated listing.

You can also revise multiple listings in Seller hub, here's how:

  1. Go to your active listings in Seller Hub.
  2. Check the box beside each listing you want to make a change to.
  3. Select the Edit drop down to make your changes.

What can I change?

Here's an overview of what you can change and when you can do it:

  • For most listings on eBay, you can edit a listing title, add or change photos, and add optional listing upgrades at any time.
  • For fixed price (Buy It Now) listings and auction-style listings with more than 12 hours left and no bids, you can lower the price.
  • In most cases, you can't change the listing duration or format. For example, you can't change a fixed price listing to an auction-style listing.
  • If you'd like to sell a different item, you'll need to create a new listing for the item, instead of editing an existing listing.

For more details, see our eBay rules and policies page or our policy on revising listings.

You can add or remove optional features using the quick listing tool. Select Add or remove options in each section to see the full list of options. Then save your choices and continue with your edits.
