"7-day" auctions are not actually for seven days, they are for 168 hours.

So I listed 3 prints by different artists on Thursday. I have ebay Saved Searches for all 3 names. All were listed fine. I got one alert on Friday, but not the other two. Has anyone seen this before? Spelling is correct etc. But without stating the obvious I am kind of reliant on the alerts working to let people know what I am selling.

Any ideas?

I tried that yes, seemed to work fine when I clicked on it. All I can think is they were listed at the exact time the batch process runs to gather all new listings or something. And just missed the cut. I write code and know myself if you don't take care this can happen.

Just wondered if it happened to anyone else recently. Cheers.
