Frustrated and tired of wasting your time trying to find upholstery fabric on eBay?

Here are the facts.

When you place upholstery fabric into the eBay search bar, it will bring up 85,000-90,000 items. These items will include upholstery fabric, upholstery supplies, quilting squares, outdoor fabric, bridal fabric and other non-upholstery fabric items. Want to see for yourself? Here is a link to a "normal" eBay search for upholstery fabric
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1311.R1.TR11.TRC1.A0.Xupholstery+&_nkw=upholstery+fabric

Now let's put "upholstery fabric" into the eBay search bar. The only thing different is the quotation marks. This will only pull up items with upholstery fabric in the title. Right now there are between 18,000 and 20,000 items. This search will eliminate over 60,000 non-upholstery fabric listings. Here is a link to this type of search: 
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.X"upholstery+fabric"&_nkw="upholstery+fabric" 

The problem is easy to identify and relatively easy to solve.

Upholstery Fabric needs to be in its own exclusive category (as is Quilting Squares, Outdoor Fabric, Bridal, Craft, etc.).

Prior to "best match", a major way to be found on eBay was by having upholstery fabric in the listing's title.  Upholstery was also a true eBay category under Crafts, with the only available Item Specifics being related to Upholstery, but no more.  Now it is left up to the sellers of ALL Craft Fabric to determine if a fabric can be used as an upholstery fabric......I suppose you could purchase 800 quilting squares to recover a chair or you could use "
FLORAL LACE FABRIC 54"/56" WIDE BY THE YARD "(http://www.ebay.com/itm/FLORAL-LACE-FABRIC-54-56-WIDE-BY-THE-YARD-/181276894700 ) to upholster your sofa.......see their item specifics beside"Type":
Type:

Apparel & Fashion, Bridal & Special Occasion, Crafting, Drapery, Home Décor, Outdoor, Quilting, Sewing, General, Upholstery........can you imagine this on your sofa or outside on your patio cushions?


We went from having a rather small "clean water" pond that held 18,000-20,000 listings of upholstery fabric  to a polluted lake that contains an additional 60,000 listings of NON-UPHOLSTERY FABRIC listings.

 For example: Sellers selling Quilting Squares can sell their in three categories specific to quilting:
#1. & #2.

 #3.
  • Crafts
  • >
  • Sewing & Fabric
  • >
  • Fabric.....The following Item Specifics are from an active listing of quilting squares:

    New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item (including handmade items). See the seller's listing ... Read more
    Type:

    Crafting, Drapery, Home Décor, Outdoor, Quilting, Sewing, General, Upholstery

    Color:

    Multi-Colored

    Material:

    100% Cotton

    Square Size:

    4'' Squares

    Length/Amount:

    Squares



      In this format, a seller of Quilting Squares can "claim" that a 4"x4" piece of fabric can be used for upholstery. The seller that I copied the Item Specifics of, has a eBay Feedback rating of :(36692). This is a very successful eBay seller. They have been selling on eBay since 2004.....this listing technique was not a mistake. This seller is guilty of key word spamming in item specifics. Why did they do it?.....because they can. I just noticed that this seller thinks that it will be just fine to use a 4"x4" 100% cotton fabric quilting square "outdoors"or to make drapes with. This listing is "polluting" at least 3 fabric categories (Drapery Fabric, Outdoor Fabric & Upholstery Upholstery). 

eBay needs to reach out to their professional and dedicated sellers to get their input on how to market and sell upholstery fabric. Right now our only recourse is to call customer service and  to hear "we know how frustrated you must feel". Unless they are upholstery fabric sellers and they had their sales drop by 70%, they have no idea how I feel.

If you are a seller of upholstery fabric on eBay and if what I have written makes sense, we invite you to our join our attempt to have eBay to recognize  that it would be best for all parties concerned (upholstery fabric sellers, eBay and most important of all eBay's upholstery fabric buyers) for upholstery fabric to have its own unique category. Feel free to copy and paste the contents of this "description" and make a few of your own "How to really find Upholstery Fabric" listings on eBay.
