No, sorry, it doesn't take hours, never has and that is not the only issue with the transferring of the listings....it is one problem with the transfer there are other things also not transferring over correctly. I only mentioned it separately because there have been so many complaints about the gallery pictures.
The listings are not transferring over properly and this is not on eBay's end either.
It is getting way too convenient to blame eBay for everything.....kinda like it's your browser or clearing cookies and cache is a standard answer but doesn't resolve the problem.
Not sure what is going on but with all these updates being done on Auctiva the issues are getting worse not better.
