No primary category set

Ever had an auction cancelled and received a notice to the effect but had the listing disappear from the site? Ever had several or even hundreds of auctions cancelled which support later decide were cancelled in error? If you have eBay have just announced that a major pain point has been removed.

In future if items in My eBay allowing them to be edited and relisted. Even better there will be a note explaining which policy was violated giving the seller a steer as to the edits required prior to relisting.

Items appearing in unsold items are accessible from listing tools such as TurboLister so editing in bulk will be possible if there are a number of items requiring edits.

There are a few exceptions where items won’t appear in unsold items – listings relating to narcotics or firearms and listings removed under the VeRO program. Apart from that it’s great news for sellers who find listing cancelled for minor policy violations allowing them a much swifter route to relaunching their listings.

The biggest pain point has been when multiple listings are ended (whether they are valid takedowns or arguably mistakes by support). Being able to retrieve listings will allow sellers to see what’s sold and what’s available to sell rather than having to rely on a stock check to determine what is available to relist.
