    Why can't I edit my ebay listing??? 16th Jul 09 at 9:52 PM
    Come on then brainiacs....!! Why can't I edit my listing?? I am selling a laptop, which I have listed as faulty but able to power up - but now it won't power up - I would rather be honest about it, as I have 500+ feedback - but when I go into the "revise your item" bit - I can see the listing, but I can't change it???
    Why does nobody say Thank You anymore??

    It has bids on it, but it still has more than 24 hours to go - I am sure that I have been able to edit listings before when I've got bids on stuff...??

    Once you have a bid you can no longer edit anything. That is the right way of doing things if you think about it, th epeople that bid did so on the original information, if you change it they might no longer want to buy it at the price they bid. Therefore youc an't change anything and disadvantage a bidder.

    Personally I would pull the listing and relist after making corrections, you don't want to run the risk of an angry buyer not getting what they bid on.
    I'm the Board Guide for the Ebay Board , Charities Board , Dosh & Disability , Up Your Income and the Local MoneySaving-England board which means I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move posts there. However, do remember, board guides don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with this).

    Thank you - Had intended to message the current bidders to tell them that I had had to change the listing and offer them the chance to reverse their bids - What a pain in the bum....!! Will all those people who are currently watching the item be told that it is being relisted? I've never had to do it before...!!

    Anyone watching will see a note to say it has been re-listed. It may be worthwhile a quick mention in your new listing the reason why you pulled the old one, then I dont think your watchers will be put off.
