7.2. Apply Templates to Imported Items

Applying SSB templates is necessary to convert items to our system.

Navigate to Listings > eBay Items > Imported

Under "Actions" next to your item, choose "Apply Template."


You may checkmark multiple items (up to 20) using the checkboxes just before the item titles and then click the "Apply Template" button the top action bar.

The "Select a Template" page will open.

Select a Template category. To select a template, click on its thumbnail. At the next page, your selected template will be indicated in the top action bar. (You may uncheck listings if you wish).

If you wish to edit the item description for your listing, click on the tools icon in the Actions column.

An editor will open. It will display the images we imported for your listing at the top. Using the editor, make any needed changes and click the Save button.

Your items must be edited individually. Do the same for any others if you wish. Note if you don't make edits with this quick editor, you will have the opportunity to do so via the individual revise action later.

When ready to apply the template to your listings, click on the "Apply Template Now" button at the top action bar.

The template you've chosen will be applied to all selected items at eBay! Your images will automatically be embedded within the template (using our full-split layout) unless you unchecked the box, "include imported image in template"

You will see a confirmation dialog box confirming the template has been applied. Please note that only items that qualify for revision per eBay's rules may have templates applied.

If there are any errors, they will be shown. If your item ends in 12 hours, or has bids or pending offers, you will not be able to apply a template.

You will be returned to the eBay Items Imported view. You may select other items to apply a template.

IMPORTANT: When using the Apply Template utility, NO profile information from your Seller Sourcebook Seller Profile is inserted into the listing. We are simply wrapping the current listing in a template. If you want to have information from your SSB Seller Profile inserted into the listing as well, or wish to change to a different template or layout, please use the "Revise" action from eBay Items Imported after applying the template.

Items that have had a template applied will display this symbol:

Once you have applied a template, you may not apply another via this method. Instead, use the Revise action and be sure to return to the Listing Generator by clicking "Edit Description" inside the Listing Launcher.
