Anyone else having issues with listing vintage clothing?
As of May 1st ebay changed the category structure in vintage clothing. Categories have been merged and some no longer exist. I run 30 day sales, best offer. I just returned from vacation and many of my listings died out. I went to relist items and I got a prompt that the category doesn’t exist and to choose another. I’ve had to manually go through every listing and find the new category and item specifics. A real pain as I list a great deal of vintage clothing.
I’m not faulting Garage Sale or the developers in this situation. But I do wonder how it was handled if not using a third party software. Did ebay just automatically merge expiring or renewing listings into the new category? Could GarageSale handle it that way in the future? I’ve asked some folks who list from ebays site and they haven’t had an issue. I’m guessing they did just auto merge into the new categories.
