We’re helping buyers find your items by making changes to our categories


We continue to make category changes to create more intuitive search, buying, and selling experiences. These changes bring eBay into alignment with industry-standard classifications, enhance search engine optimisation (SEO), and make it easier for buyers to find your items. 


Previously, we announced that the category changes listed below would be live by October 24. We’ve made the decision to move this to early 2024. There’s nothing you need to do— just enjoy a successful holiday selling season. We’ll be in touch before the category changes take effect.


In early 2024, listings in the selected categories outlined below will be automatically moved to the most relevant new category. There should be no changes in fees (either an increase or a decrease) due to these changes.

Do I need to do anything?

No, the process is automatic, so no action is required. Following these changes, your listings will automatically be moved to the most relevant categories, and your buyers will be able to find them more easily.

Which categories are changing?

  • Performance Parts
    We’re combining the Performance Exhausts, Performance Driveline & Transmission, Performance Chassis, and Suspension & Brakes categories into their corresponding categories under Car & Truck Parts. This will reduce duplication and help your buyers find the products they are looking for.

  • Automotive Tools & Supplies
    We’re changing our Automotive Tools & Supplies category to more accurately categorise products and simplify the buying experience.
