Scheduling your listings

Scheduling your listings lets you list items up to three weeks in advance. You can create your listings at your convenience and control the time they start and end.

Note: To make your listing searchable at a specific time, you may want to schedule it a day in advance of when you want it to show up in a search. Although your listings will generally be searchable within 24 hours, for Trust & Safety reasons, there are times when this can take longer.

To schedule your listing:
  1. On the Sell your item form, scroll to the Choose a format and price section

  2. Select Scheduled start time option, and then select the date and time you want your listing to begin. (If you don't see this option, click the Add or remove options link at the top of the section. Then click the Scheduled start check box, and click the Save button)

  3. Complete the Sell your item form. Review and submit your listing. 

You can view your scheduled items in the Scheduled view in My eBay.


  • On certain eBay sites, the start time of a scheduled listing might be delayed by up to 15 minutes. The listing end time will also be delayed by the same period of time. This applies to listings on all eBay sites in Europe

  • You can schedule up to 3,000 listings and schedule your listings as far as three weeks in advance

  • For billing purposes, you need to place a credit card on file to schedule listings in advance.
