Create a listing template with Drafts
The Listings manager allows you to use Drafts as listing templates for easy publishing.
Note: sadly, if you have drafts or templates on eBay, we cannot currently import them into our platform. We recommend copying active or ended listings to drafts to help create a template. See more about this in step 1, option 2.
Step 1 - Create/ edit a Draft with basic item info.
You can either
create a new draft from scratch
or use an active/ended listing
Option 1 - Create a new draft
Visit Listings and select your Drafts folder
Click the Create Draft button
Enter basic information that you will use on your listings using this template,
then, click the Save As Draft button.
Option 2 - Create a Draft from active or ended listings
Use the Bulk Actions menu's Copy to Drafts option,
or duplicate/ edit a listing to save as a draft.

Remove specific listing information and leave only data for your template.
Step 2 - Tag your template
To help keep you organized and make your listing templates easier to find, we recommend you add a tag to your Draft (template) to filter by.
Click here to learn about applying tags.
Step 3 - Use your template
After saving, edit the draft again and include new/additional listing data.
Use the List Item button to publish the listing.
When the item is published, the draft will remain the same as it was before editing.
Drafts are not updated unless you use the Update Draft button in the editor.
