How do I change the eBay store category assigned to an ad?
Before you change your eBay Store categories you will want to make sure you have your current list of categories imported into your account. You can do this by clicking the "Import" button located in your My Account > Account Settings > General Settings view.
To change the category assigned to an open listing, go to the Marketplaces > eBay > Performance > Open Listings view, select the item you wish to revise and click on the "Revise Item" button in the toolbar at the top of the page. Now select the "eBay Stores Category" field, edit the field, and click the "Save and Exit" button.
To update your future listings, you have 2 options:
In the Marketplaces > eBay > Product Mapping > Posting Templates view, you can click on the "Site Details" link for the desired posting template. You will edit the "Store Category" field and click the "Save and Exit" button. Any items that post using that posting template will post to that store category unless the ad is set differently. The ad setting will override the posting template setting.
2. Ad Level
In the Marketplaces > eBay > Product Mapping > Ads view click on the Ad you wish to change and then make the necessary change in the eBay Store Category field and save your changes.
