I just went and looked at an item I had listed on April 11, and modified on November 6th. The item appeared in my inventory, but when I looked at used books for sale, it didn’t appear.
I made a change to the listing and saved it, and after about 10 minutes it appears.
As far as I know there is no problem with the listing, proved by that it shows again.
Does Amazon delete items from the list of selections available to buy if an item has been there unchanged for a long period of time? If yes, what is the time interval prior to removal?
Once something is listed on Amazon it stays until it is sold, the seller removes it, or, if a problem item, Amazon has to remove it.
An existing item may be moved to inactive if something is wrong with the listing that needs fixed. It may also be changed to inactive if the price falls outside any minimum or maximum price levels that are sometimes set.
No, Amazon used to do this for all sellers years ago and it was a hassle to relist products as they aged. They no longer do this and it is great. Every once and a while I sell a listing I have had opened for years. Last week I sold an item I had listed in 2001.
