Orphaned listings - definition 

Orphaned listings are listings created on international sites but not by our system.

They usually happen for two main reasons:

  • They were created by you
  • They were relisted from our translated listings which ended (manually or by additional software).

We synchronize everything according to the domestic listing, so orphaned listings cannot be managed by us. They will be disconnected from our system and cannot be updated.  

How to prevent orphaned listings?

The most important thing is to avoid relisting translated items by yourself. You should only relist the domestic ones. 

If you are using a third-party tool, you should set it up, so that it only relists your domestic listings.
