Listing cannot be revised

Complete error description: ” Listing cannot be revised, need help?” “portions of this listing cannot be revised if the item has bid or active Best Offers or is ending in 12 hours.”


  1. If you have some bids on your listing, a customer has it in the cart, or the insertion is close to ending, you cannot edit the listing.

  2. Another common cause of this error is when someone attempts (accidentally or intentionally) to disable the best offer on an item. 

Solution: Wait some time before retrying to revise your listing.

Alternative Solution:

eBay will NOT allow you to remove the best offer option on a listing that has any sales history to it. You will need to end and relist the item if you want it removed.
