Placing your Store on vacation
When you turn on your vacation settings, we display a message in your listings letting your buyers know you're on vacation. You can also add a customized message to your storefront.
Changing your Store vacation settings
To turn on your Store vacation settings:
You'll continue to be charged the normal fees (such as your eBay Store subscription fee and listing-related fees) while vacation settings are on.
If your vacation settings are on, they remain in effect until you turn them off.
To turn off your vacation settings:
Making your fixed price listings unavailable
What it does: This option hides all of your fixed price listings so buyers don't see them in your eBay Store, in search results, in cross-promotions (where other items are promoted in your listing), or on any other eBay pages. Using this option prevents buyers from buying items and waiting longer than expected to receive them from you. This feature also lowers your risk of receiving negative Feedback and transaction defects for items not received.
Other information about this option:
Displaying a vacation message in your Store
What it does: This option lets you place a message on your Store pages, to tell buyers that you're on vacation. This message appears below your custom header, if you have chosen to display one, without affecting any text you have saved in that area.
Note: You can use a default vacation message that we provide or create one of your own using text. HTML and script tags are not allowed.
Sending an out of office reply
If you're going on vacation or not planning to check your email for a while, use the out of office reply to let anyone who tries to contact you know that you're not responding to your messages. When you set up an out of office reply, any email you receive is replied to with the message you create.
