eBay Active Content

Here is how eBay explains the term:

Active content is a broad term which covers any type of non-standard text that can be included in item descriptions to provide additional functionality. Examples of active content include JavaScript, Flash, plug-ins and form actions which can be used to create features such as cross-promotion modules or video players.

This type of content in eBay listings may inhibit purchase on mobile devices and can lead to abuse in our marketplace. We recommend you don’t use active content in your listings and, as announced in our autumn 2016 Business Seller News, from June 2017, we’ll limit the use of active content in all new listings across all devices and it will not appear by default. Later in 2017, we plan to remove or block listings with active content.

To prepare for these changes, we encourage you to stop using active content now. You can check if your listings contain active content by using the i-ways Checker, a free tool which has been developed in collaboration with us.
