As announced in the Spring Seller Update, sellers who list branded items in new or manufacturer refurbished condition will soon be required to include the item’s brand, manufacturer part number (MPN), and global trade item number (GTIN) to complete listings in the following categories:

  • Baby

  • Books

  • Business & Industrial (Electrical & Test Equipment, Healthcare Lab & Life Sciences, Heavy Equipment, Heavy Equipment P&A, MRO & Industrial Supply)

  • Cameras & Photo

  • Cell Phones & Accessories

  • Clothing, Shoes & Accessories (Shoes only)

  • Computers/Tablets & Networking

  • Consumer Electronics

  • DVDs & Movies

  • eBay Motors

  • Health & Beauty

  • Home & Garden (Tools and Appliances only)

  • Music

  • Musical Instruments & Gear

  • Pet Supplies

  • Sporting Goods

  • Video Games & Consoles

Starting June 29, product identifiers will be required on new listings—a requirement eBay will enforce by preventing listing completion whenever product identifiers aren’t included. Enforcement will be introduced on a category-by-category basis over the next few weeks. So add the required product identifiers to your listings now and make sure you’re ready
