How to Edit an Ebay Listing

By Techwalla Internet Editor

Selling your items on eBay is a fun and profitable way to make extra cash, but sometimes it is necessary to edit an eBay listing. Perhaps you forgot an important detail, left out the measurements or made an error in the description. Maybe you need to revise the selling price or change the auction to one with a reserve. Whatever the reason, editing your auction is simple. Just follow the steps below.

Tips & Warnings

  • When a section on the Revise Your Item page appears highlighted in gray, it means you are not able to revise that section.
  • Check out the link in Resources for more informaton on revising bid information on eBay.
  • The different aspects of your auction that you can revise depend on whether there is a bid on the item and the amount of time left on the listing.
  • You can't extend the length of time the auction runs after two hours have passed from the time the auction opened. You can't remove a bid and then edit your auction.
