Common eBay synchronization errors


In this section we present the common mistakes you can find in the eBay application reports in reference to the listings.

If the error you found is not in the list below, click here to check the error directly in eBay.

If your error is not listed or you can not find it in the eBay guide, send an e-mail to for assistance.

The reports are visible in the dedicated eBay section Synchronizations > Reports.

Synchronization actions:

  • add: listing to add / add
  • revise: listing to be updated / updated
  • end: listing to close / close
  • relist: listing to reopen / reopen

Pay attention to these aspects when a product does not publish / update in eBay:

  • a product may be associated with more than one Storeden category. In this case, we advice you to enable product synchronization in only one category, to avoid any problem with attribute settings.
  • if you create a product with 2 variants (eg. yellow, red) and publish it in eBay, then you will not be able to remove variants but only to add them (eg. yellow, red, green). If the yellow will no longer be sold, the variant must never be canceled but it will be enough to make it available to zero. Otherwise, the listing will no longer be updated.
  • Even if the listings are "Good Till Cancelled", so without an expiry date, if they are not updated (due to errors or lack of automatic sync activation) eBay can close the listing autonomously in general after 90 days of inactivity.

Error 50039/21916112: The mark can only be used if you choose as a payment method

The error text is badly translated from Ebay. It indicates that you must select another shipping service among those offered by eBay that supports the cash on delivery (not all shipping services accept this mode). An alternative is to remove the cash on delivery from the accepted payment methods in general or in the category of product.

If you do not want to accept this agreement, you can only sell the item on the site where you registered and you will have to choose the options for shipping locally in this tool before sending the listing again. Go to to accept the terms.  If you have activated international shipments, and you get this error, it means that you have to enable your Ebay account for international sales.
