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 and HTTPS
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.
