Fixed price listings can only be or Good 'Til Cancelled (GTC) listings which renew automatically every 30 days, unless the item is sold out. Shorter terms are only reserved for auction format listings.
- GTC is created for a duration of 30 days and at the end of the 30 day period, your listing will automatically get renewed and list again. This continues to happen after every 30 day period until the seller cancels the listing.
- If a listing remains out of stock longer than 90 days, eBay will not allow relisting it.
- Because a listing is relisted automatically, it does not lose its sales history. This helps the listing to appear higher on the results pages.
Listings can be ended if:
- Stock levels became 0
- Listing is closed manually on the channel
If your listing has ended and you would like to relist your item, it is possible to do so on eBay directly as described here. Alternatively, Linnworks can do this for you automatically. For this, you would need to enable the Relist option:
Settings > Channel Integration > Edit channel details > Inventory Sync
This enables to relist listings if they are ended on eBay and you still have stock. Everything with stock > 0 will be relisted.
For GTC listings there is one more option available - Out-of-Stock. When enabled, if the available quantity is 0, listings go out-of-stock instead of being ended. Main advantage of this option is that the sales history is retained while the item is out-of-stock.
Works with the Out-of-Stock feature on your eBay account, which needs to be enabled on your eBay account directly in order to be applied via Linnworks as well.
If an item is always in stock, it is best to set the listing duration to GTC and use Out-of-Stock to avoid loss of sales history due to relist.
