No specific brand name needed
We sell on eBay various products under different seller's names. What we need is a GENERIC style template that will allow us to sell ANY kind of products in any type of market. In one word: Neutral.
This is basically a website (listing template) within a website (eBay.com) with all restrictions implied. So we need something clean, simple and easily editable. Also, it's important that it follows eBay terms and obvious requirements (i.e. no dark background since obviously eBay's background is white)
Different markets, different customers. We really need a very neutral type of template, no theme-oriented look.
Examples of templates and what we like or don't like to give a general idea of what we want:
(Note: the only modifiable area for design on eBay is under "item description".) Here is the eBay item #'s for various seller's items samples:
- Sections are well defined with use of simple non-invasive borders / light background color changes
- Meshes well with the look of ebay instead of looking out of place
- Header is very simple yet remains striking and concise
- Cross selling boxes on the left side are a bit too invasive and take away from the main product.
- Simple and efficient
- Section well defined and directs the reader's attention well onto them
- Clean cross-selling section.
- Could be more organized and attractive looking
What we really mean by "ergonomic and sleek":
- Everything looks very clean and has a purpose
- Plays with fonts alot (different sizes, common font types) to differenciate sections / informations
- Excellent integration of: images, icons, text.

Here is a draft of an example of layout we find interesting:
It shows our basic requirements regarding CONTENT which includes the following mandatory points: Cross-selling, Policies, Text, Pictures and Search button area. Of course, you are free to offer different configurations! It's just a reference/guideline...
Size will be ranging from 1024 to 1268 width Template must be designed with that in mind (stretched it must look natural, not out of place).Variable lenght depending of product's needs but we must keep it from neverending scroll..
Must include two search boxes. One is non-invasive under, above or inside the header. The other will be under the item detailed description/ images in a more detailed and flashy manner with a brief text explaining its purpose.
More information to come later, i will keep you updated and make brief changes when needed. * Please also read -Comments- section of this contest*
