When relisting, you may get an error about certain elements not being specified. It is possible for this to occur when an item is initially listed with an older version and then relisted with a newer version.

There may be little or no mapping from older tags to newer tags and thus the old listing does not contain enough information to be successfully relisted with the newer version (for example, details related to shipping or to item specifics).

One solution would be to relist the item with the older version. However, that requires knowing what version is best, and you might not have been the one who originally listed the item.

Troubleshooting tips:

  • Try relisting the item with a lower version.
  • View or even relist the item via the eBay marketplace; sometimes the marketplace provides information not available via API, information that might give insights into a possible solution.
