Adding and Editing Templates

Learn how to make changes to your templates and add new ones.

Templates are an essential part of your listing.  A professional looking template can attract buyer's eyes and subconsciously change their preference and decision causing them to buy from us rather than from our competitors. 

To view your templates, click on Uploader . There, you will see the template panel containing the four following buttons:

Set as default template - Sets the chosen template as your default template for each upload.

Add new templates - Add new templates using an existing HTML code, or create one from scratch.

Edit templates - Edit your existing templates and AutoDS default templates to create a new one.

Delete template - Deletes the chosen template.
Note: you cannot delete default templates. 

Adding New Templates

To add a new template, you will need to fill your template name and add the template itself in the 'Description' field or by clicking the SOURCE button and then pasting your HTML code

The 'Uploader' uses constant strings in order to change them with the real values from the source site.
Put the following constant strings in the place you want the real value to appear:

  • For the title, put: TITLE_HERE
  • For the description, put: DESCRIPTION_HERE
  • For the features(from Amazon page), put: FEATURES_HERE
  • For the main image, put: MAIN_IMAGE_HERE
  • For the product dimensions, put: DIMENSIONS_HERE
  • For the package dimensions, put: PACKAGE_HERE

Editing Existing Templates

Before you can edit a template, you have to choose which template you wish to edit. It is also possible to change the name of the template.



FAQ:

Q: Why does my template get distorted? 

A: It's possible you have edited the HTML of our templates, creating a new one with errors. You may have a broken code piece in the HTML during the upload process. The solution is to fix the code, save the template, and then bulk change all listings to the new corrected template. If you're not an HTML expert, we recommend you not to edit the template on your own. If you like, you can order the services of a designer who created AutoDS templates on Fiverr

 

Q: I'm getting an active content warning from eBay about my listings. Why, and what can I do?

A: There is no need to do anything. We've checked with eBay and our templates are fine. Whatever their system defines as active content it, will just not display it. You can check your listing here and see for yourself:

If you are still concerned, you can change the template in bulk to one of our new ones. For example, "Limited Time Sale". Know that this change will grab back the original data from your source site to the description. Click here to learn how to bulk change your listings.
