What does this error mean?

This error occurs when variations are added to a listing that is already published without variations.

In detail:

  • When the item was published, eBay assigned a "non-variation" Item ID to the listing.

  • You will need a different Item ID (for variation listings) to edit/create variations.

How to fix:

Sadly, eBay does not allow changing the Item ID, where you will currently need to:

  • End the listing.

  • Edit the item to include variations (in the "Ended" folder of Listings),

  • Relist with variations.
