Creating an item description with template to add to eBay

The easiest way to update your listings and ensure that your template code is not affected is to use a template profile from within your Frooition Account to generate new code for you.

You can then use this code to update your live listing (subject to eBay's restrictions on revising items [link])

Creating a new profile

Click eBay Tab
Click the Listing Sub Tab
Click the Create New button
Select Direct Listing to eBay from the listing method options
Choose your eBay Site from the eBay Site drop-down
Give your profile a name (this can be different to your item title)
Click Start button

Stage 2: Describe your Item
Add the item description and images you require (NB it is not advisable to copy and paste from an external source as this often carries over extraneous code which can affect how your listing displays)
Click Continue

Stage 3: Preview your Listing

If you are happy with how your listing preview looks - click Get Code
Copy the code displayed.
Go to eBay
Revise the item that you have just amended the profile for.
In the item description area, click on the HTML tab
Replace the code that is there with the code you have just copied.
Save you changes and your item is now updated.


NB This process will not update your gallery image. You will need to change this when revising your item in the 'Bring your item to life with pictures' section
