Good til Canceled (GTC) Watchdog Rules


Starting in mid-March 2019, the listing duration for all new fixed price listings on eBay will be (GTC) Good 'Til Cancelled.  

Existing fixed price listings that are not Good 'Til Cancelled will continue until they sell or end at their specified duration. If a short-duration fixed price item is relisted, the duration will be set to Good 'Til Cancelled upon relist.

To help eBay sellers through this change, inkFrog has released a new feature, GTC Watchdog Rules!  You're able to set up multiple watchdog rules based on various criteria and also pause and resume the rules as needed.

See eBay's 2019 Early Spring Seller Update for additional information regarding this and other changes.




Rule Name:  Provide an identifiable name for your rule (this is only seen by you)

eBay Account:  Select which eBay account the rule should apply to

eBay Market:  Select which eBay market the rule should apply to

Primary Category:  Leave this set to any category or select a specific eBay category so that the rule only applies to listings within that category.

Action:  End (number of days) before GTC renewal

Ignore Auto Relist Rules:  If selected, items ended by the GTC Watchdog will not be automatically relisted by inkFrog

Enable Rule Immediately:  If selected, upon saving this rule, the current GTC listings within this settings criteria, will be affected and end early.




Once the rule is saved, there are options to pause/resume the rule, edit the rule, and delete the rule.
