Its upgraded guys and girls.. heres the FULL HTML CODE ALSO <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
Keith Richmond (1 year ago)
I did this and it worked. However, I see a "?" at the bottom of each description. Is this normal?
Raymond Espinoza (1 year ago)
RockstarFlipper I pasted the meta line, but the content is still not mobile friendly. I have description text boxes on this listing could that be causing a conflicting issue?
Dianna Dunlap (1 year ago)
I also have a question mark at the end of the description on every listing. I don't know what to do about this. Can I remove the tag and try again, in bulk?
Donna Morrow (2 years ago)
Angela, just compare the 2.
Bryan Divisions (2 years ago)
This left a question mark at the bottom of all my listings. They're all mobile friendly now, but is there anyway to bulk edit and remove the ? lol thanks
Nancy Ross (3 months ago)
I'm, glad you made this, thank you!! I'm learning drop shipping this was good to know. Now, can you make a show on teaching VA's how to do mobile stuff dropshipping?
Cathy Tharington (4 months ago)
Hi, I need your help, although i entered the html code you mentioned in the description but still when I check my listing for mobile friendly it shows horizontal scrolling error. Please tell me how I can fix this error & thanks for your wonderful tip. I have almost 900 listings. I don't have time to do them one by one and I watched your video 3 times to make sure i am doing it right, but it does not change them

It for some reason is putting a ? in all of my descriptions. It makes them mobile friendly but adds a ?. Any ideas how to fix?

Deborah Macleod (1 year ago)
Hi I've done everything you have said to do but most if my listing say viewport meta tag correctly set. Above it it says In red ! Horizontal scrolling .

Sterlingwoodfitness (1 year ago)
Casey, I'm on my computer and I went halfway way down and I do not have the make mobile friendly link. I used the tester that Delta 9 posted and at least 1 of my listings is not mobile friendly. I don't have a store does that make a difference? Thanks.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
I would need to see a screenshot of your screen you can facebook message me it if you want. Some people had this issue and I dont know why its not there.
Mary Sullivan (1 year ago)
Thanks so much Casey I was trying to do mine one by one... and you explain things this older lady can understand. Even after years of on & off doing Ebay I am always learning from you. Thanks for doing videos this 50ish lady can understand.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Thanks so much Mary, im so glad I can help!

RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
I appreciate that so much!! thank you
Jason Heinrich (2 years ago)
I did it step by step like Casey said and it worked perfect on all of my listings. Not sure why some of you are having issues. Do it step by step the same exact way.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Yeah it should be working fine.
Morgan LaFey (2 years ago)
Thanks Casey you're the bomb!
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Thanks a million!!
2know4sure (2 years ago)
Thanks for an easy to understand video. NONE of my listings were mobile friendly! I wasted a little time revising listings by not scrolling down to the bottom of the "fix it for me" box and CLICKING SAVE! the bottom SAVE botton was not visible & I thought I was done, but upon rechecking the listing, I found it still wasn't mobile friendly. Then I saw the save button (duh..) THANKS AGAIN!! & Rock On!..
cilita413413 (2 years ago)
I revised all my listing "bulk" by adding the tag but my listing are still not "mobile friendly" :-(.  Also if I go to revise one listing the "New" mobile friendly link is not listed.  Do I have to call ebay for them to fix?  Thank you so much for all your videos.  You're awesome!
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Im not sure why your checker went away. Mine is always there. maybe someone else had this issue? anyone? or calling ebay might be a good option
Donna Morrow (2 years ago)
I really want to thank you for your clear video. You helped me figure this thing out. One my listings, when I used the bulk editor, the horizontal scrolling issue was not corrected, so I just revised the other listings one at a time, using the Mobile-friendly checker button, and that worked great!
Danny Anderson (2 years ago)
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Thanks Danny
MagikalMommy (2 years ago)
So i edited them in bulk, put in the code you have below and went back to check. Everyone of them still says they are not mobile friendly lol. No idea why its not working
jade foshee (1 year ago)
mine isn't working either. did it just the way he said.
MagikalMommy (2 years ago)
actually, it made it worse! Now I cant even revise them individually! ugh!
Kim Sager (2 years ago)
Well I tried it and couldn't figure out what was going on because it was not working right BUT finally I figured it out.... forgot the brackets. Hoping it has an impact on weekend sales. Our sales have been increasing more and more lately so fixing this now makes me feel confident weekend sales should be good. Hoping for awesome though Ha Ha! We do NOT take a single day off from listing anymore and I always KNEW that the more you list the more you sell, not only new listings but it gets your whole store hopping and even old items that have sat a while start selling. I have preached this very advice in my blog, in our ebay motivation group etc. but like many I have a problem following my own advice. However since we are striving to make even a quarter of what your sales are on eBay right now (short term goal) we figured we better get to it. Casey... it is TRULY paying off BIG! I know I have said THANK YOU a million times but I am saying it again THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving me hope again for full time living with online sales and giving me that spark back I had years ago! It feels good to be REALLY back, not just here and there working in bits and pieces and not getting anywhere other than hoarding stuff in our home. Oh speaking of which THANK YOU AGAIN... I am no longer paranoid I am leaving money on the table if I don't get the absolute most out of an item, now I am finally able to list and be happy with a good profit margin and quicker flip.. better money in pocket now then waiting for the extra 5 bucks more for months to a year. ;) Have a GREAT WEEKEND! We are doing a yard sale most likely tomorrow AND listing ALL day long and hopefully night too, want to not only hit 500 listings this weekend BUT surpass ;)

Nancy New (2 years ago)
Hi Casey - I have tried this over and over and I keep getting a message that says, "Oops. Something went wrong." Have you heard of that?
Nancy New (2 years ago)
Thanks for answering! I'm merely clicking on the "Mobile Friendly" link in the listing and that message comes up. Doesn't even let me get to where I can paste anything. Originally, I had watched Nicole State's video on doing bulk editing for this and did that. After that, this is what started happening when I went to check. But, now it even does it with some of the new listings. Really odd. I think I'll need to call eBay.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Are you pasting it in the HTML section and not the standard section?
Ada Nagy (2 years ago)

Hall's Hangout (2 years ago)
I followed your directions exactly and it did not work at making my listing mobile friendly. I DO NOT have that little option on the right upper area of my description area about making it mobile friendly. I did do the bulk edit and pasted the code into the html. i t did not work. Any ideas?
Sandi Gold (2 years ago)
So I did as was suggested but when I go to test and I click on mobile friendly tester I get a message in red that says, "Something went wrong. Try again" but every time I try I get the same message. Please tell me what to do.

Omgoodness.........Thank you!
Dina Erxleben (2 years ago)
THANK YOU So much, Casey!!! I have been on eBay for a month now and I used my phone for EVERY LISTING and NOT ONE of my listings were moblie friendly till now after making this correction. Crazy. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge so the rest of us can succeed too. You're not called RockstarFlipper for nothing. :)
Rena Hedrick (2 years ago)

Whiskey Picker (2 years ago)
??? Hey RSF do you list via mobile device? If so do you use premade templates? I have templates on my PC but I've been uping my mobile listing and would like to optimize the process. A demo would be nice. Thanks and hope you get a chance to reply.
PH Discount Shop (2 years ago)
Any ideas how to fix horizontal scrolling error? I am getting the message after inserting the HTML line with no option to fix it. Thanks.
PH Discount Shop (2 years ago)
I have my template pre filled so I just delete what I have fill it back in and then click fix it. Takes a while but solves the problem.
Sigal ben-tabi (2 years ago)
HI i have the same problem..did you solved yours?
PH Discount Shop (2 years ago)
as always, thank you.
Terri Fraser (2 years ago)
Thanks Casey for making this video.  I did not know that so many people did their eBay shopping from mobile devices.  I bulk changed everything, using the updated code and all went well!

If you do not have an eBay store, you can still check your individual listings => ebay.com/tools/sell/mobile-friendly-test
mrazcr000 (2 years ago)
GREAT VIDEOS. I do not see that mobile friendly feature when i follow those steps. I begin listing and photographing using my phone and finish the drafts up using a laptop. b/c I begin with my phone is it starting the mobile friendly process? Thanks Again.
drummer (2 years ago)
Another very important top tip folks. Cheers Casey.
Dan Allen (2 years ago)
Awesome! This is a really good one Casey! Happy monday....
Elizabeth Fuentes (2 years ago)
Yes you should correct in description. I tried it on three items, it didn't work and had to revert.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
It won't allow me. When i paste it, out says "ERROR"

Hey I found out if you have WINDOWS PHONE the ebay app won't be available much longer..somewhere in the middle of the year they're discontinuing it. Sucks for ME
5797029 (2 years ago)
I just updated a couple of listings for mobile friendly. They look exactly the same in the app as before. How does this make it mobil friendly? A year ago I edited all listings, per ebay advice at that time, to make them more mobile friendly.
MyThriftedEscape (2 years ago)
Casey, can this be entered into templates so that it is automatically in all newly created listings? Thanks for sharing this tip!
John Wilkerson (2 years ago)
Quick tip: If you list items using your smartphone your listings are automatically mobile-friendly.
326theriot (2 years ago)
definitely not true. I only list on my phone and almost all of mine aren't mobile friendly.
Michael K Goode (2 years ago)
John Wilkerson Thank you for letting us know this. I was just wondering about that since u use my phone.
John Wilkerson (2 years ago)
Guess that's what happens when you assume…and that's dumb! If I list on a mobile device eBay should automatically make it mobile-friendly.
My Outboards (2 years ago)
John Wilkerson Good to know! I list using my phone 😁
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Thats not true. We list on our phones almost every item and most of mine were NOT mobile friendly.
