In the Spring 2018 Seller Update, we announced our transition to a product-based shopping experience, ensuring that your products show up on the site the way today’s buyers expect. We also announced the first group of product lines for which sellers must associate their listings with the eBay catalog before the end of April.

The May Seller Update will also share more details on the next phase of the product-based shopping experience, including more information on how you can use your expertise to modify product information and even create new products in the eBay catalog. We will continue to share information to prepare our sellers, developers and third-party providers for these upcoming changes.
