Developing eBay Design Templates

Designers Start Here

Introduction

One of the best things about Neto is it’s seamless integration with other sales channels such as eBay. eBay is the worlds biggest marketplace, and it can be difficult to standout in the crowd.

Fortunately Neto does a great job at streamlining custom descriptions and templates — which is usually a tedious manual task.

What is an ebay listing template

Accessing the Templates

The HTML for eBay design templates is stored in the database. This is to allow users to customise their content through the control panel.

You can find the code for any templates under Content > eBay Listing Designer. This is also where you can install new templates or start from scratch.

Restrictions

eBay impose a number of restrictions on what you can and cannot include in your eBay product descriptions. As our custom design templates are technically eBay product descriptions, these same restrictions apply.

These restrictions vary based on location and which eBay site you are listing to.

Due to these restrictions, listing design templates that contain certain types of HTML and Javascript (such as iFrames — this includes Youtube videos), will be rejected when attempting to list.

Other things that can cause rejection are including your websites URL in the description or linking to social media channels.

Testing your Template

While Neto’s theme builder allows you to preview the template, to truly test your design template in the wild, you will need to list a product to eBay.
