eBay 2017 Listing Changes

Next year will see major changes coming to eBay listings, the following statement was made earlier this year and will effect thousands of listings:

The use of active content in listings, including JavaScript, Flash and form actions can inhibit purchases on mobile devices and can lead to abuse in the marketplace. From spring 2017, we’ll limit the use of active content in all new listings across all devices and it will not appear by default. Later in 2017, we plan to remove or block listings with active content. We encourage you to limit your use of active content now.

This means any seller using a bespoke listing template incorporating JavaScript or Flash will be gradually removed from eBay.

This will of course effect thousands of listings, so here at Kooki we have redeveloped our listing templates and removed all the code that will cause the templates to be removed.

This makes our templates responsive and fully compliant with eBay’s changes, so if your template isn’t compliant get in touch for a quote, as eBay’s JavaScript and Flash “Doomsday” is coming!
