Thread: How do I edit all listings in bulk?

  1. #1

    Default How do I edit all listings in bulk?

    I need to remove my VAT No from every listing. Is there a easy way to do this in bulk?

    Thank you in advance.

    Should be possible - as long as the text is consistent across all listings and none have bids.

    Just put all listings into the bucket on the first page of Bulk Edit and then do a Description (Replace) with the following:

    Replace: VAT No GB 486 2717 15.

    ​With: (leave the field empty)


    Don't forget to do an Export of your listings before you start as a backup should things go wrong.

    I notice that there is a nice new feature in Bulk Edit that I don't recall seeing announced.

    You can now use ##thru## in the Replace field to match any text. So, the example above could become:

    Replace: VAT##thru##15.

    ​With:
    (leave the field empty)

    This would also be useful with some of those tricky edits such as getting rid of the Added by the Seller ​messages in listings.

    Thank you for the reply. I had considered that but quite a few have had sales on them. I was hoping there was something I could use to edit all listings. I seem to remember a bulk listing tool, maybe I could use that to de-list and re-list all?

    Yes, you could export your listings, make the desired changes, set column Z of the spreadsheet file to ao (add/overwrite) or o (overwrite), then upload the modified file using Bulk Upload.

    The previous warning still stands; ensure you keep a copy of the unedited exported listings file so that you can fall back to it if things don't go as planned.

    P.S. You could have stated in the OP that you had already dismissed using the Bulk Edit replace facility.

    Thanks again. Sorry but I tried various things, again, after I started the thread. Including trying to edit listings with sales. I will have to take all the listings down and re-list with bulk upload. Looking at some of them, there are a few bits I need to change. Like carriage/postage, etc. What could possibly go wrong... I hope it keeps the current stock levels too.
