It has come to our attention that some eBay sellers were told by eBay customer service representatives that template designs may no longer be used at eBay. Consequently, they have left our service to list on eBay directly. As a bronze-level certified eBay provider, we must meet certain standards and adhere to all eBay policies. All of our templates have been reworked to be mobile-responsive, and our images are optimized for fast-loading in browsers. It is not true that you may not use templates. However, if you prefer for your listings to appear "plain" -- close to how they would appear when created on eBay's lister -- we do have some very simple template choices for you. Look for "Listings Import" or "Totally Plain" -- we suggest marking them as favorites so they are easily accessible to you. We have other "plain" choices, so please explore and find the template that works best for your needs.
Keep in mind a "template" at SSB is simply a framework for your listing. It can be very plain or quite decorative. All templates have some underlying HTML (the language of webpages). Template designs are a great way to distinguish your items from those of other sellers. You may choose to embed your images, or you may use our "EPS Only" layout, which simply sends 12 images to eBay Picture Service so no images are embedded within your item description.
