  • SSB eBay Update Tool for Active Content & Secure URLs

    eBay is advising sellers that their listings may contain active content or non-https secure URLs or links. SSB's templates are not considered active content. Templates have been updated to be mobile compatible, contain secure URLs and are in compliance with all eBay policies.

    However, older listings, Good 'til Canceled listings and listings you may have continually relisted may contain active content or non-secure URLs and should be updated. To ensure compliance we are encouraging all users to update their listings using our eBay Update Tool.
    Running the SSB eBay Update tool:
  • In your SSB account go to the Listings Menu and select Seller Profiles.
  • From the Action drop down next to your profile(s), select eBay Update from the menu.
  • At the next screen leave the box checked next to "UPDATE ACTIVE CONTENT & SECURE URLS ONLY". Do not check any other boxes.
  • Click "Revise Listings” button
    NOTE: You must perform this procedure for all eBay profiles in your account.
    Depending on how many listings that need updating it can take anywhere from 5 minutes to several hours for all your listings to be updated.

  • IMPORTANT: Using the eBay Update tool fixes ONLY active listings at eBay. EBay does not allow us to fix older non-compliant ended items! If your listings were passing compliance tests previously but you're being notified again by eBay that you have non-compliant listings, then it's very likely that older listings have been relisted or sold similar and the non-compliant HTML code that was residing at eBay was reintroduced among your items.

    Whenever selling similar or relisting your items, please do so through your SSB account so that fresh, compliant code is sent to eBay. In the case of relisting from SSB, please be sure to return to the Listing Generator during the relisting process. This action refreshes the HTML code and SSB URLs to be in compliance with eBay's policies.
    Relisting through your SSB account:
  • Go to your eBay Items>Launched page
  • Choose Relist from the Actions field
  • Click on the Edit Item Description button
  • Click on the Back to Launcher button
  • Click on the Relist Now button
  • This updates the listing with the fixed code

  • Custom Templates: If you have a custom template contact your designer and ask for a version that contains secure URLs for all template graphics. Your designer will need to be hosting their graphics on a secure server in order to make these changes. SSB will update your custom templates as soon as a secure version is received. Please note that our utility does not fix third party URLs (such as to Photobucket or to template designers' sites), but we will do our best to give you guidance on a case by case basis as to your options.

    Active Content-free Showcase Released

    We are pleased to announce the release of our active content-free scrolling showcase. The showcase is viewable by your potential buyers on all browsers (PC and Mac) at this time. A mobile-responsive version is under development and will be released shortly. You may use our eBay Update utility to either add a showcase, or to update any older showcases within your listings to comply with eBay’s active content-free policy.

    Inventory Management Tool

    Manage your inventory directly on SSB and speed up your listing process. With our Inventory Management tool you will be able to create a list of items that you usually keep in stock. When listing, you will be able to allocate your inventory across scheduled or active listings. Our at-a-glance view of your items will show what you have on hand, available to list, and quantities sold. You’ll be able to view an inventory history for each SKU and print reports for your records.

    To begin using the tool please go to the Listings menu and select Inventory Items under the orange Prepare header.
