What Is Active Content?

eBay active content includes a variety of third party applications, for example JavaScript, Flash, Plug-ins, and form actions. eBay active content can include many different functions, such as search tools for searching an eBay Store, links to a video, a gallery of images or even a live chat feature.

Why Is This Type Of Content Bad?

This type of content may be able to create many useful things such as asearch feature; however these applications can raise security vulnerabilities! This type of content isn't friendly in other aspects, such as JavaScript and poor load times or Flash not being mobile friendly.

If you use content that isn't mobile friendly in your eBay listings, you're missing out on opportunity! With more than half of all eBay transitions being viewed on a mobile device prior to purchasing, using a mobile friendly listing could help you to improve your sales!

Additionally, as eBay will eventually phase out the ability to use such content in your listings and eBay Store, you should remove and replace this content as soon as possible.

Can You Still Personalise An eBay Store?

Yes! You can still personalise your eBay Store, the only change is that you cannot include active content in your eBay store without it being blocked.

So What Can You Do?

If you're unsure how you can customise your eBay Store without using this content or if you do not know how to remove and replace this content from your eBay Store, it can be very beneficial to consult the expert advice of a skilled professional.
