There are a few eligibility requirements to use Promoted Listings Express.
You can promote your auction-style listings when creating or editing a listing, from the Promote it banner, or from the item menu. If your item is eligible, you’ll see an option to use Promoted Listings Express in the following places:
Depending on eligibility, you’ll see an option to promote your listing while creating a new listing or right after listing an item. You may also see an option to promote your listing when editing an item.
Select the “Promote it” banner on top of eligible listings on the My eBay Selling Overview and Active pages to promote your listing.
On the My eBay Active page, when you click on the menu next to your item, eligible listings will have an option to “Promote listing”.
Tip: You can monitor your listing’s performance from the eBay app by selecting “View ad report” from the item menu of a listing promoted with Promoted Listings Express.
There are multiple ways in which you can promote your items:
Note: There is no limit to the number of items a seller can promote or campaigns a seller can set up. Campaigns can have up to 50,000 listings in one campaign.
Promoted Listings Standard does not show listings that are not active—whether sold, expired, or ended. If an item was previously promoted and has sold, expired or ended and you ‘Sell Similar’ or relist that item, it will be automatically promoted and inherit its previous Promoted Listings Standard settings.
Note: Multi-quantity Good ‘Til Cancelled listings remain promoted until removed from their campaigns.
