Specifying Parts Compatibility in Listings

This chapter introduces parts compatibility and describes how it works with eBay listings. It provides details for listing items with parts compatibility information, how parts compatibility information affects item searches, and how to retrieve parts compatibility information.

Parts compatibility is an eBay feature that uses structured data to associate compatible assemblies with parts listed on eBay. For example, parts compatibility enables sellers to specify accurately and comprehensively the vehicles on which a side mirror or a rim will fit. Parts compatibility improves search relevancy and frees up item titles and descriptions for more useful descriptions of the part.
