A listing may fail to post either because it does not pass the validation we have in place to ensure all the required fields are filled in or because it is rejected by eBay when we submit the listing request to them. In either case, an error message will be available in your Auctiva account to help you identify the problem.
If you attempt to post a listing through Auctiva and receive a confirmation message indicating the item is being posted to eBay but the item never shows up as active in your eBay account, it is likely that eBay rejected the attempt to post the listing and returned an API error.
On the other hand, if you attempt to post the listing through Auctiva and receive an error indicating the listing did not pass validation or something similar, it is likely that you do not have all the required fields filled in. In this situation, you should be able to see the specific errors in the listing by opening up the saved listing and clicking the blue "Error Check" button at the bottom of the page.

"API" stands for Application Programming Interface, and is the way that we (and other third-party services) communicate with eBay's platform.
When trying to list to eBay, and your listing fails to post, you will see an API Error message on your Scheduled Listing page (noted in red) and a link that says "View Error" that gives a brief explanation as to why your listing was not posted. Error message counts are also noted at the top of most pages (the red number box) where it says "Notifications." You will need to fix the errors in the listing (if possible) before it can be posted to eBay. You may also receive notices from eBay's API if your eBay account is not in good standing, or if you have reached your selling limit. Please contact eBay for questions regarding these types of error messages.
API Warnings (noted in the orange number box at the top of your Auctiva page) are also messages sent from eBay, but do not prevent your listing from posting to eBay and generally speaking, you shouldn't have to take further action.
