Why does Sellbrite remove links from my eBay descriptions?

Created: - Updated:

As of October 15th, 2017, eBay is no longer allowing 3rd Party Links to be included in listing descriptions that direct customers to a site outside of eBay, with some exceptions. Learn more here.

To help eBay sellers avoid penalization with the submission of invalid links, Sellbrite automatically scrubs through your eBay descriptions and removes any non-permitted links whenever you publish a listing to eBay from Sellbrite. Here are some examples of how Sellbrite is removing non-permitted links for you, when found...

 

When there is anchored plain text, the markup will be removed:

Before: <a href=”https://3pdomain.com”>Click here to create listings automatically</a>

After: "Click here to create listings automatically"

 

When there is only a web URL, the markup and the URL will both be removed:

Before: <a href=”https://3pdomain.com”>https://3pdomain.com</a>

After: "[link removed]"
