Advertising with Classified Ads

Use Classified Ads to list items, services, or properties for sale in order to generate multiple leads. This format does not enable buyers and sellers to transact online through eBay nor is eBay Feedback available. However, if the ad has a Best Offer option, you can transact online through eBay. This format is currently available in the Real Estate category and Cars sub-category within the Automotive category.

Classified Ads have the following features:
  • List your asking price. No bidding takes place.

  • Interested buyers fill out a contact form, and their information is sent to you.

  • List a phone number, and interested buyers can call you (optional).

  • List your item, service or property for a specific period of time.

  • Revise item-specific information at any time while the ad is active.


See the Classified Ad fees page for specific fee and category information.


The seller must treat the buyer's contact information in full compliance with eBay's Privacy Policy. This policy prohibits sharing the buyer's information with third parties as well as use of the buyer's information for any purpose other than communicating with the buyer about the item, unless expressly permitted to do so by the buyer. Failure to comply with this policy can result in the seller's suspension or expulsion from the eBay community.
