eBay announced in the Spring 2016 Seller Release that they are stopping the use of Active Content in eBay Listings.  Active content includes JavaScript, Flash, Form Actions and plug-ins. This active content inhibits purchases on mobile devices and also poses potential security risks.

From Spring 2017 eBay will limit the use of this content in new listings. By Fall 2017 eBay will block and remove new and existing listings. This means that sellers with active content will need to update their listings to become compliant with eBay’s new rules.

As an eBay certified provider of design, we have been hard at work re developing our services to offer the same great functionality on an Active Content Compliant platform.

As of last week, all new Frooition eBay designs will be Active Content Compliant.

We will continue to offer the following great features on listings without any use of Flash, JavaScript, Form Actions or plug-ins:

  • Responsive mobile design
  • Zooming image gallery
  • Product information tabs
  • Dynamic store categories that update across all listings
  • Dynamic, intelligent, cross promotion that offer related items, not random un-related products

We are also developing a service for new Frooition customers where we can strip Active Content from their existing listings and applying the new design on behalf of the seller, saving them weeks of work!

Existing Frooition customers do not need to worry, we will be contacting our customers in due course to arrange their conversions. We will do all the work, including converting existing listings to be Active Content Compliant well ahead of the eBay deadline.
