View Full Version : eBay UK Self Rep Artists Category

I recently put in a request to eBay UK for a 'Self Representing Artists Category'.
Just been told today, that they hope to have this up and running by February.
Hopefully, we can now display our sales without all that mass produced
chinese work gumming up the works.

And just how would such a catagory prevent outsiders from listing with it? Or from a UK lister offering buy/sell or other mass produced items?

Actually none of the categories are limited to specific users. Folks often do post in categories that their work really doesn't fit into. It can be reported to ebay...but I've noticed that with the art categories, ebay really doesn't take a lot of interest as long as its related to art.

However, in the Self Rep category for the US, there really are not a lot of users who are not self reps. When something is placed out of category, it makes it more difficult for buyers to search for...and that's counter productive to sales.

Good luck with the new category in the UK! I know it will be a welcome addition.
