Item Specifics
The term “Item specifics” refers to a set of attributes based on which buyers can search for the products of their choice. Item specifics have been selectively rolled out for a few categories. Sellers are asked to enter item specifics while listing their items. These are then displayed to buyers in the Description section on the View Item page. Item specifics have recently been launched in the PDA’s, desktops, and Video games category.

As a seller in this category, you can ensure that your products get included in the Item Specifics search by making sure that each of the attributes (in Digital Cameras these include Digital Camera Type, Brand, Model, Resolution in Megapixels and Zoom) is accurately filled in.

Item specifics need to be entered at the time of listing, either through the Sell Your Item form on the site or through Turbo Lister and other tools.

Item specifics provide an easy way for buyers to find what they are looking for and, overall, provide a better buying experience.

In the coming months, Item Specifics for MP3 players as well as Product Finder for Digital Cameras will be launched.
