As of mid-July, the category structure will be updated in based on feedback received from the eBay Community and from experts in the affected fields. A complete list of the new category structure can be found on Seller Central here.

Updated categories:

ANTIQUES

We’re adding more spots for Reproductions so that they can be clearly distinguished from items of the period. Also new are expanded Stained Glass categories, an area for Antique Silver produced outside of the U.S., and a section to list antique items by Period or Era.

ART

Look for a category just for Self Representing Artists’ ACEOs, a.k.a. Artist Trading Cards.

BOOKS

Check out the new Cookbooks category!

CAMERAS & PHOTO

Look for the Sony brand in Digital SLR Cameras & Digital Flash Units. Zoom lenses are being added to Digital SLRs, and you’ll find 16mm Film and Dual 8 Projectors, too.

CELL PHONES & PDAs

We’re making space for the Apple iPhone and iPhone Accessories. Look for a Smartphone category as well.

CLOTHING, SHOES & ACCESSORIES

Find clothes for ballroom dancing, belly dancing, square dancing and other dance styles in a new Dancewear & Dance Shoes section for adults and children. In the Children’s Clothing section there are more size, sleeve length, and swimsuit style breakdowns. We’re adding Plus Sizes for boys and girls, Skorts for girls, and Hoodies for everyone!

COINS & PAPER MONEY

We’re including a Reproductions category under Exonumia.

COLLECTIBLES

Look for a Reproductions category in Black Americana. We’re also adding spots for Nautical Décor and Traction & Trolleys.

COMPUTERS & NETWORKING

You’ll find new categories under Intel CPUs, Laptop and Desktop PC Memory, and Desktop Motherboards.

HOME & GARDEN

In Gardening, we’re creating spots for Bulk Annual & Perennial Flower Seeds. In Home Décor, check out our new section for Mosaic Art!

JEWELRY & WATCHES

We’re expanding our Diamond Jewelry categories to reflect upcoming changes in Trust & Safety listing guidelines. Natural, Enhanced (for color & clarity) and Synthetic (Lab-Grown) diamonds must now be differentiated. On the lighter side this summer, Barefoot Sandals and Dental Grills are getting their own categories!

POTTERY & GLASS

Look for Studio Pottery, and Studio/Handcrafted Glass categories.

SPECIALTY SERVICES

We’re creating a new eBay Stores Design category under eBay Auction Services.

TOYS & HOBBIES

Under Action Figures, we’ve added new brands and expanded the Marvel Legends & Star Wars sections. Look for new categories in Diecast Vehicles, Classic Toys (Lite Brite!), Handheld Games, Pretend Play, Models & Kits, Slot Cars, Non-Military Lead Toys, and lots more Model Railroad categories including the OO Scale. Last but not least, we’ve added Russ Shining Stars, Abby Cadabby, and Ben 10.

Yeah we totally screwed up when we removed the Big & Tall Mens section but we won't admit it by putting it back!

Sure mess with my clothing --- you do it every summer it seems.
Now my item specifics and cartegories will all have to be corrected before I canlist again.

Yeah, I love ebay  :053
sock monkeys at www.OurSockMonkey.com and of course everything at www.FilthyRichFashions.com

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why we call it the present!

Well if I do sell my stuff on ebay at least I'll know where to put it!
