Errors from PriceYak:

Error: Duplicate Listing

Solution: This item is already listed in your eBay store. We block duplicate listings to prevent your account from being flagged by eBay. Check for this item in your eBay store. We've made an easy way for you to do this (see gif below). We now also link directly to the alleged duplicate. 

PriceYak checks for duplicates by matching ASINs and/or matching titles. If titles for variations match exactly, PriceYak will warn that you're trying to list duplicates. To circumvent this (at your own risk), use "Review and List" to either simply force the listing through despite the warning, or edit the title so that it is unique before you list it. 

Error: Banned Brand

Solution: We keep a running list of brands that have been flagged by Amazon due to copyright infringement warnings. We block these to prevent eBay from flagging your account. In some cases, you might receive an email from eBay about a Copyright warning for a listed item. In this case, please contact Support so we can add it to our list of blocked items.


Error: No offers found which meet seller selection criteria

Solution: PriceYak gives this “No offers found which meet seller selection criteria” error when you try to list an item/items that do not meet your Amazon offer selection settings on PriceYak.

You can see your Amazon source settings by heading to your store on PriceYak, and then clicking on "Amazon US", "Amazon UK", or "Amazon CA" (depending on which country you're using) under the "Source Settings" section:




Let's say that you only have "1” maximum handling day, “free” shipping, and only the “Allow offers sold by Amazon” and “Allow third party FBA offers” boxes checked:



This means that any item you try to list with MORE than 1 handling days, has any shipping cost, or is sold/fulfilled by a third-party seller would give you this “No offers found which meet seller selection criteria” error.

To lessen the chances of receiving this "
No offers found which meet seller selection criteria" error, we recommend that users raise their maximum handling days (anywhere from 7-10 days is best), change their shipping methods to “cheapest” instead of “free”, and check the “Allow third party merchant-fulfilled offers” box to give some more flexibility.

So if you are ever wondering why an item can't be listed with that error, those settings are usually the key.
