Effects Of eBay’s Active Content Ban On Its Listing Services In 2017

The active content ban by eBay for Spring 2017 is going to affect the content from the
seller’s listings, as they no longer will be able to include Flash or JavaScript into their
listings. Thus, the dynamic catalog and contents will not work for the third party sellers. The
eBay product listing services regarding the active content will be removed entirely by the
Fall of 2017. Until then, eBay has given enough time to the sellers to make changes to the
listing from active content as the company like eStore Factory is there to provide the
services. Here are some basic points regarding the active content ban in 2017.
Active Content will not be Shown
With the new policy of eBay, the active content will be banned by this year and third party
sellers will not be able to upload anything in a dynamic format. The Flash and JavaScript
used in the listing will not work whereas the static HTML content will work seamlessly. The
active content in the existing and new listings will no longer be shown as this affects the
loading of the product page. The decision was taken in the wake of averting any kind of
security risk or inhibiting the purchase of the mobile devices.
Effect on Videos of Products
The videos about the products play an important role in describing the product content and
its unique features. However, with the active content ban, the YouTube videos will not play
on eBay. Still, for increasing sales on eBay, the HTML5 video will be allowed as uploading
the MP4 video in the hosting place will definitely help the sellers. It is compatible with many
browsers, eBay apps and even can run seamlessly on the Smartphones too.
Provision of time to make Changes
eBay has provided time to the third party sellers to make changes in the contents of the
product listings. They have given time until June 2017 to the sellers to remove active
content from the listings and one can get an alternative to various plug-ins, flash, widgets,
live chat widgets, scrolling galleries, JavaScript. The alternative provided for the active
content are HTML and the CSS. The eBay SEO will also be affected with the listings, as the
active content will be replaced with alternatives and the third party need to comply with the
new policies on time.

View on Mobile Devices
With a ban on active content as stated by eBay in order to maintain the security of the
product listings, the HTML and CSS developed content will be compatible with the mobile
devices. The product listing in the static content will help the viewers to view the products,
and loading of the pages will be fast as compared during the usage of the active content.
Conclusion
Therefore, the third party sellers need to start working now on eBay product listing services
so that they do not have to wait for their content features to stop functioning. For that, they
can take services from the experts at eStore Factory who are experienced with eBay
related templates.
