If eBay changes something in your policy template will be updated too and you can download your new updated template for free from your herolister account. That’s why we recommended creating an account in herolister. You can do this in the checkout or in the register page. With account also you can save template draft to faster create another template.
Yes, you can use it for any software accepting HTML templates (like Auctiva, CrazyLister, Inkfrog, Turbo Lister, I-ways, Frooition and others).
Check your software provider accepts HTML templates.
Next, probably it’s needed to add variables to our template.
You can do this in a generator for example in the description add [DESCRIPTION] or something similar depends on your software requirements.
You must add these variables where you want.
Also, you can add variables in generated code, but this will be required to knowledge about HTML.
If you don’t know HTML, please find a developer to do this for you (for example on fiverr.com), we not provide services like that.
To templates work well you must have a subscription on our site.
License to use these templates required to pay for the subscription
Yes, templates work on all ebay website.
No actually we remove ebay store templates because on some ebay account ebay disabled option to customize store templates.
But if you have old account and want store template please contact with us!
We give you premium special prepared for ebay image hosting for any plan. Ebay requires photos with the https link. When you personalize your template you have the option of upload logo and product pictures and other images to our server. Personalizing the template is easier and your photo always displays quickly to the buyers so you do not lose sales.
If you want, you can paste your url into the photo. On the above possibility of uploading a photo you will see a description with a link “here” if you click this you will see additional fields where you will be able to paste your links to photos. We do not recommend using this option because free hosting photos often remove your photos without notifying you about what you do not even know you are losing buyers because pictures in your listing not showing. Also they are slowly and if don’t have https your template not will work good on ebay.
Yes! You can simply update text in ebay editor in default HTML tab.
If you want to add cross-selling and your product does not list on ebay yet. You must first list product listing on ebay with all data end basic description for the product (or example text). Now you have an id for this product. Later you must revise listing to add a good template.

No, you don’t need to do anything. All will be working normally.
1. Make sure you have copied and pasted to eBay HTML tab exact code without changes. The best is to use “Copy to clipboard” button.
2. Try to use a different browser to paste the code. Sometimes some browsers can change spaces in code, and then your code can look wrongly.
2. Check your create listing page looks the same like on herolister animaton after you click button “Copy to clipboard”. It happens on some accounts that eBay shows the old page for creating the listing. After click “Copy to clipboard”, herolister shows you an animation where paste code. If you create a listing page on Ebay not look the same, probably you have an old view of this page. You need to change to eBay new view. If on your eBay page next to the description you see button/link “Show standard editor” please click this, and you will see a normal new view eBay creates a listing page, and now should all work.
3. Read our entire FAQ, there will probably be an answer to your problem.

If you want a more personalized template than is possible by generator you need to find a web developer to do changes for you.
We do not provide customize service.
But remember, if web developer do changes in template code for you.
Every time you generate a new template for a new product in herolister, you will need to do the same changes in code what do your web develeper, so it’s not recommended changes in code.
You can do this, but by adding HTML code after generating template code. You can simply find in generated template code your text you add in description, and after this text add code generated on this page: http://www.isdntek.com/tagbot/YouTubeConverter.htm (we not respond for this page, so we do not know this page will work all time because we do not update this) After this you paste all code to ebay, and you should have video in template. If you need help with this, find freelancer HTML developer to tell you exactly how to do this or do this for.
If you have this error “Wait a second. Data is loading. Click again when text color in button will be white. Check also you fill required input fields email and user id.”
And you’re filled email and user id field.
You probably use the browser comeback button, and your browser automatically fills this field.
Please refresh your site and use only buttons on the page to generate the template all will be good (don’t click the back button on the browser).
If you have any other problem please contact with us.
Some browsers automatically added the latest data you entered to the different form fields.
This can be any field even an image field (duplicated images).
If you experience this problem, you need to disable the automatic form completion in your browser or use a different browser to use our system.
Chrome browser do this often, so we recommended use a different browser.
Or you can simply disable autofill, here you have instruction for any browser:
We have a size limit to uploading photos.
Because too big photos will slowly be loading on your ebay listing.
First way (recommend because is fast)
If you use Windows, we recommend installing PowerToys.
With PowerToys you can simply resize your photos by clicking the right mouse button on your photo and clicking resize.
Also, if you want to compress your photos without losing quality we recommend go to https://tinypng.com/ and compress (after this your photos also will less weigh).
Second way (good but slower)
An alternative way to resize is to go to http://www.simpleimageresizer.com/ and resize.
Next if you want you can go to https://tinypng.com/ and compress.
Third way (not recommend)
You can also upload photos to https://imgbb.com/ and paste the photo URL to the template in herolister
*but remember using free hosting image is not a good idea because your photos can disappear and you will not be informed about it
Fourth way (also good)
Also, you can use ebay hosting.
In 7:25 min you can see how to get a link to your eBay image:
So first you must add a listing with no template and upload photos to eBay, next you need to add these links to in template generate form and revise your listing by adding template code.
The best idea if you do photos by phone on camera please not set maximum resolution for example 4k (it’s not needed, the picture will be showing good), please use smaller resolution and quality.
There is no option to automatically update all your listings if you do not use different software which is to create eBay listings automatically (outside eBay).
But, our system is very fast to create new listings because you can save drafts, to create a new listing you only copy to our software your actual description, add photos and add the title of the product.

If you have too big spaces around your photos in the template you should resize your photo to smaller or do the same resolution for all photos in the gallery.
For example too big logo (you should do logo smaller):
For example different photo resolutions in gallery (you should do all photos the same resolution):
