In order to comply with the eBay policy on external links in product descriptions, you may need to remove certain links from your product descriptions, before listing them on eBay. 


For example, you may need to remove a link to the "Returns Policy" page on your own eCommerce store, from ALL your products descriptions on eBay. 


Our system allows you to do this by creating a "Description template".


Create a Description template

To create a description template for your products, use the left hand menu to select  "Settings --> Feeds":

e.g.



By default, the description template is blank so that the standard product description from your eCommerce store is used for eBay. 

e.g.



To remove a link from every eBay product description add the link to the "Find" field
eg. to remove the link "<a href="http://www.acmeretailer.com.au/returnspolicy">Returns Policy</a>"  from every eBay product description, enter the following and click the "+" button


Repeat for all links or words you wish to remove.

Once completed, click update 


The Description template box will then be populated with the correct code syntax to remove the link, as below

You will need to complete a full import and upload to ensure the the description in changes are made. 


Remember:

  • A description template is applied to ALL your eBay listings.
  • If you need to remove multiple pieces of text, create multiple "Find" and "Replace" entries
  • Use\ before $ if using a $ sign in your text. For example if you want to remove the link: "<a href="http://www.acmeretailer.com.au/springsale">Special Offer \$20 off for Spring</a>"
