How to Select a Category for Your eBay Listing
When you sell an item on eBay, you need to select a category for the item to make it easier for buyers to find. Once you’ve decided on a sales format (for example, auction or fixed-price listing), you can go to the Sell an Item page to start listing your item. The first step is to select a category for your item:
Click the Sell link on the navigation bar at the top of the eBay home page.
The Sell an Item page appears.
Click the Browse categories tab.You can narrow down the subcategory listings on the Sell an Item page using the Browse categories tab.
The Browse categories tab offers you a wealth of choices in a handy point-and-click way. If you’re unfamiliar with the types of items you can actually find in those categories, you may want to check out the category before you choose one to describe your item.
Click one of the main categories.
On the next pane, you see a list of subcategories.
Select the most appropriate subcategory.
eBay makes it easy to narrow the category of your item: Just keep clicking until you hit the end of the line.
Continue selecting subcategories until you’ve narrowed your item listing as much as possible.
You know you’ve come to the last subcategory when you don’t see any more right-pointing arrows in the category list.
