***No December Category Updates***
December 16, 2005 | 10:55AM PST/PT
We know our sellers are busy during the holiday rush, so there will be no category updates in December. We will be announcing the next planned changes in early January, with the changes taking effect a few weeks later.
***Revise Your Item - Add Pictures to Active Listings Even After A Bid***
December 16, 2005 | 10:33AM PST/PT
Sellers can now use the Revise Your Item process to add eBay-hosted pictures to their listings, even after a bid has been placed for that item or if fewer than 12 hours remain in the listing, similar to how you can add extra description. In addition, if you didn't list your item with any pictures originally, you can also select any listing upgrades (such as Supersize [http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/supe...eName=CMDV:AB]) that you want to include.
Please note that as before, any pictures already included when a bid is placed or when fewer than 12 hours remain in the listing cannot be edited or removed. You will also be unable to add pictures if both a bid has been placed and fewer than 12 hours remain in the listing. For more information about revisions for active listings, please go to the Revising Your Listing Help page.
