automatic relist

is there such a thing? i won an item and was refunded bc

"There seems to be an error as the item was previously sold few weeks ago and there was an automatic relist that I did not catch."

i tried to search ebay on how to set that up but couldnt find anything. i assume it doesnt exist, right?

Seller may have had one scheduled or just hit "relist". If you think, it's something else, just search the completed's.

Annoying, but sometimes this stuff happens.

If you look at sellers items for sale on the left hand side there is an option to view completed.

If you can't figure it out post the auction or user ID

I have been a power seller on ebay for many years and I have never had something automaticly relist, you have to hit a relist button to relist. Either the seller is lying and the item didn't sell for what she wanted or she had relisted it by mistake.

You can check her completed items or see if she lists the item again.

Hope this helps!

One of my friends had stuff automatically relist on his account. He didn't realize it so I think it can happen. Not sure how though.

You can definitely set up your account to auto relist things, and also there is "good til canceled" on store items, which relist themselves every 30 days unless you manually end them. My guess is maybe she had it listed as both an auction and a fixed price and it sold at fixed price but kept getting relisted at auction? Take a look in the completed items though

Are you sure it was an auction style? Looking at fixed price listings that ended due to being sold doesn't show up with a winning bidder.

There are programs out there that can be used to autorelist both auction and fixed price. Some big sellers have programs that are tailored to their business that allow them to do things that the basic ebay features cannot. Also there are businesses that will provide you with these services.

i guess im not sure now. i find it highly unlikely that its an autorelist if the new listing is for a different price then the origina but i suppose i dont know enough about these other non ebay programs. are seller abled to get dinged for not sending you an item the way a buyer can be dinged for not paying?

the listing i won

original listing

I looked at the listing you won and the original completed listing. There is a price difference between the 2, she had to relist it herself because an automatic relist by ebay would not change the price at all. She just didn't like the amount it went for and lied. Your only option is to leave neg feedback, she already has quite a bit.

^ auto relist can be set to change the price. In fact it can even compare prices to other sellers and change the price accordingly to either undercut them or to place your item at a similar price +/- $XX.XX or use a percentage. There was actually an interesting article about this a few months ago where 2 auto relisters on amazon had driven the price of 2 sellers books up to insanely high prices because of the algorithm the auto relist program was using.


In this case for example the item did not sell the 1st time around. The seller could have programmed the auto relist to lower the price by $3 and relist.

Feedback is kind of unfair in the way where on ebay buyers can cancel a transaction or force a return for what ever reason(and they can still neg the seller). But if a seller wants to cancel a transaction when they don't have the item in stock forget about it. It should work both ways.
