Turning off eBay emails for every new listing

Xpress Lister makes it possible to list thousands of products on eBay in minutes. This is great until you get thousands of "Item Listed" email notifications from eBay. The default is one email per new listing.

Steps to Turn off notifications

  1. Log into your eBay account
  2. Click on "My eBay"
  3. Click on the Account tab
  4. Click "Communication Preferences"
  5. Under Seller > Selling Activity change "Listing confirmed" from Real-time to None or one of the Digest frequencies if you prefer to still get a summary email.

Other notification options

There are quite a lot of communication preferences you can't change. In these cases the option will be shown but the selection drop down will be disabled.

The following options* are available to be changed:
