  1. The problem here is – these services range from $10 to $20 and more, and there is only a single feature I would use which is this. ebay really needs to observe the instance reaction, and just undo this stupidity. I’m considering finding a way in to eBay’s API myself.

    1. API access is easy, just sign up for a free developer account on developer.ebay.com. Like everything else eBay does, the documentation is awful and contradictory but the API itself is reliable because the megacorp sellers demand it.

      We have used listing software we developed in-house for the better part of a decade that treats GTC as 30 day and evaluates every listing shortly before expiration. The ideal time frame for indexing on search engines seems to be 2-3 months. Beyond that the listing gets stale without sales and should be ended, and a selling listing is extremely valuable and should be kept.

      It’s nice to see that the listing software vendors have finally rolled out this feature, it is long overdue. Now they just need to get with the times on some other features
