Item Condition IDs and Names
This topic provides broad overview of the condition IDs and their associated names and how they are applied.
Important: The condition IDs, their names, and the corresponding meanings vary by category and sub-category, as well as varying across sites. This topic is not intended to be comprehensive, it is intended to help you understand how condition IDs are used and how they vary for different types of listings/categories. Please refer to the eBay site for the latest definitions. More importantly, always see the seller's listing for full details and description of any imperfections before purchasing an item.
eBay consistently uses the same condition IDs for similar condition qualities (across all sites and categories). For example, 1000 is always used for brand new items in their original retail packaging (or equivalent). However, the display names and the subset of supported conditions can vary in different categories (see Condition Display Names by Category).
The following table summarizes the typical meaning of each condition.
|ID||Typical Name||Typical Meaning|
|1000||New||A brand-new, unused, unopened, unworn, undamaged item. Most categories support this condition (as long as condition is an applicable concept).|
|1500||New other (see details)||A brand-new new, unused item with no signs of wear. Packaging may be missing or opened. The item may be a factory second or have defects.|
|1750||New with defects||A brand-new, unused, and unworn item. The item may have cosmetic defects, and/or may contain mismarked tags (e.g., incorrect size tags from the manufacturer). Packaging may be missing or opened. The item may be a new factory second or irregular.|
|2000||Certified - Refurbished||The item is in a pristine, like-new condition. It has been professionally inspected, cleaned, and refurbished by the manufacturer or a manufacturer-approved vendor to meet manufacturer specifications. The item will be in new packaging with original or new accessories.
Note: Sellers must go through an application and qualification process to become eligible to list with the 'Certified - Refurbished' item condition. Any seller that is interested in eligibility requirements should see the Certified refurbished program page in Seller Center.
|2010||Excellent - Refurbished||An item that is in like-new condition, backed by a one year warranty. It has been professionally refurbished, inspected, and cleaned to excellent condition by qualified sellers. The item includes original or new accessories and will come in new generic packaging.

|2500||Seller refurbished||An item that has been restored to working order by the eBay seller or a third party. This means the item was inspected, cleaned, and repaired to full working order and is in excellent condition. This item may or may not be in original packaging.
Note: This item condition has been replaced by the 'Excellent - Refurbished', 'Very Good - Refurbished', and 'Good - Refurbished' item conditions in a select number of eBay marketplaces and categories. See the eBay Refurbished Program - Category and marketplace support topic for more details.
