Just tried to edit and relist several items from my closed listings, and received this error message on both. Not sure what I need to do to correct this, as it is I do not have listings, and I am the seller.

"This item cannot be accessed because the listing has been deleted, is a listing, or you are not the seller".

Hi laravintagesales,

Thanks for contributing to our forum. I just had a chance to review your account and it appears that eBay returned the API error you mentioned in response to a couple of your recent relist attempts because the attempted originated from a closed listing that ended a long time ago and had since been deleted from eBay's database.

Ebay generally deletes closed items from their system 60 to 90 days after they have closed and, once they have done so, it is no longer possible to relist the items successfully - even using the “Edit and Relist” option on the Closed Listings page within Auctiva.

You can always check whether a closed listing is still available on eBay from your Auctiva Closed Listings page by clicking the link to the item number.

It appears that you still have this particular item stored on the Saved Listings page within your account, so you should be able to locate and successfully post the item anew from there without having to recreate it from scratch.

I hope this helps!
