How? Ebay has recently changed the format and i want to change a tunic I've listed in dresses to tops as it's not had any viewings.

Cannot see how to do this in revise item- doesn't appear to be a link and have searched Help to no avail.

hit revise then at the top there is a 'change category' button - are there less than 12 hours to go?

no- 6 days to go.

nope- doesn't work- sorry!
there isn't a change category button- maybe there used to be but not now.

I just tried it on one of my listings and it definitely is there.

I wonder if it depends on which version of ebay you can see with your browser, and the browser- I'm using Firefox.

I can't see any change of category- i can see change of title but nothing else.

I'm using Firefox too.

is it worth you asking Live Chat I wonder?

Def. no change of category- top of the 'change' list is the Title Of Item- nothing else- no word 'category' there at all.

The category section is further up than the Title - are you sure you have scrolled right up to the top? It is just a link "Change category" not a text box like the Title.

you can't change category if a bid

PurpleFrog Wed 17-Apr-13 14:35:39

Can you have a bid if an item has no views?

This is really weird.

I've used ebay for years and have a good record etc- so I usually know how to work it all. But this week I listed something and the format has completely changed. There is NO listing of 'category' above title of item.

purple there is no text box.

There are no bids- I only listed last night.

... OK I have thought about it and I suppose you can - if you show the item no. in the list view and then snipe the item!

I am now tempted to list something random at 99p to test this. My items were all listed last weekend and work as before.

I wonder if its giving you the eBay settings for mobile devices, or something. Try clearing your cookies for eBay.
