EBay's item specifics are a great and easy way to maximise your eBay sales. Using Item Specifics makes it possible for buyers to browse your items and filter products without just relying on eBay search.
EBay are making many item specific options mandatory, meaning you won't be able to revise existing or launch new listings if those options are not completed. For example waist size is mandatory for items listed in Clothing > Jeans categories.
Item specific options display in the left column on search, enabling buyers to narrow searches down by feature.
Within the listing tool you will receive notifications for any products that are at risk of missing or invalid Item Specifics.
There are 2 clasifications for item specifics:
Items may be flagged if item specifics are missing or have invalid entries (e.g. waist size = red)
