How to Fix eBay HTTPS Content Issue In Google Chrome Step By Step

Last Updated on March 1, 2019 by

Recently us, the sellers have faced a security issue in eBay which is regarding HTTPS Content. In this documentation, we will talk about how to secure or update Our HTTP content from Our Ebay Listings. It will help eBay buyers to Visit the eBay listings description easily and will show the product address bar on the product page in the secure site.


HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol and is what governs data communication on the internet. HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP (the “S” stands for “Secure”), and it ensures data privacy and security by encrypting communications from all parties.

If we have listings that contain non-secure HTTP content, the browsers used by almost half of all eBay buyers—will begin displaying the message “Not Secure” in the address bar. This will happen when users visit standard HTTP pages or HTTPS pages that include non-secure HTTP content.

We believe that the “Not Secure” message may deter buyers from purchasing and impact our conversion rate. To prevent the “Not Secure” message from appearing, we must do the following:

Meanwhile, HTTP content containing listings will show a one-click item description snippet. When anyone clicks that snippet it will show the description in another tab straightaway. The mobile experience will remain unchanged.

We prefer for the full item description to display in our listings, we recommend that we update our HTTP content.

HTTP to HTTPS content process

  1. Use this tool ( ) to identify our eBay listings that contain non-secure, HTTP content.

eBay has partnered with i-ways and has implemented an eBay token (sign-in) to protect Our full inventory of listing compliance being available to anyone publicly.

2. After signing in on ebay, We need to agree with eBay Policy:

  1. If the tool flags non-secure content, determine if the third-party websites you use to host content, commonly called domains, are compliant with the stronger browser security standards (HTTPS). You may be able to find this information on the host domain’s website or by contacting the domain.
  2. When we’ve confirmed that our host domains support HTTPS, find all uses of “HTTP” in our listings and replace them with “HTTPS”.
  • eBay’s bulk edit tool can help you make this change to 200 listings at a time.

In Seller Hub > go to the “Listings” tab >
select noncompliant listings > click Edit

In the Edit we need to select Edit fields > Item description.

  • In the Item description field, click the drop down to select Edit listings in bulk – find and replace.

If you use a third-party selling solution, contact your provider for assistance in identifying and updating non-secure content, and making your listings HTTPS compliant. We are the experts of eCommerce and always ready to take care of your business. So, contact us for any queries.
