eBay requires new specific attributes for each listing to facilitate a more consistent customer experience. Item specifics are descriptive keywords that tell a buyer about your item. They may include brand, size, length, width, height, type, color or style, and many more. Specifics vary depending on what you’re selling. If you haven't completed the item specifics fields that eBay is using in a particular shopper search, even your product is what the shopper is precisely looking for; it can be excluded from the search results.

If you are a professional seller on eBay, you will have more workload and spend much more time to publish or update each listing.

You can publish your listings with the Store Automator field mapping system quite easily. You just need to create necessary custom fields and mapping with required attributes. You can upload your listings in bulk upload field options, and therefore, you can update your listings or create new listings regardless of your number of listings in a minute. StoreAutomator assists clients in implementing their already existing listings to related categories required templates.

How to complete item specifics

In the item specifics section of the Sell your item form, eBay requires various specifics based on category. For example, you are selling a pair of shoes and the required specifics are brand, color, upper material and style. You need to create custom fields for each item specific and map these specifics to eBay specs with the custom field mapping system of StoreAutomator. Therefore, you can update your listings with bulk action, easily.
