Top eBay Categories

13% of top sellers have their main category as eBay Motors. Other popular categories are Clothing, Shoes & Accessories at 12%, Home & Garden at 12%, and Collectibles at 9%.

The breakdown by top category considers where each of the sellers has most of their products listed in, thus being the main category. Some sellers of course have products in more than one category, but most often they have more products in one category than all the other ones.

eBay is now best known for consumer goods so it is not surprising to see eBay Motors, Clothing, Shoes & Accessories, Home & Garden, Collectibles, and Health & Beauty dominate the list. Categories like Collectibles, Stamps, and Antiques are no longer big part of eBay's catalog.
