“Listing is missing required item specific(s): “Shoe Size”.

I originally asked this question on the Course page and received a reply from Matt but I can’t make it work so can’t move on to the next stage. I have been stuck here for about 2 weeks now. Can anyone offer any help? If you read the correspondence below you will see that I believe I am using the correct item specific(s)…

When I try and list to ebay (some flip flops) I get the error:-
“Listing is missing required item specific(s): “Shoe Size”. Please provide the required item specifics”

In the specifics section I have used my existing attribute (Shoes Size). This is the one that works for my website so why is it bringing up this error?

Howdy Roger,
For the “Shoe Size” error message, a couple of daft checks for you:

1. You’ve listed the parent configurable product in Magento to eBay?
2. The configurable attribute for this product is called exactly “Shoe Size”?

Hi Matt,

Thanks for your reply. It could be a naming issue. For shoes my attribute set is called Shoe Size but the attribute code is shoe_size although the attribute admin and default store view titles are Shoe Size. Which name is ebay looking for? and if its the attribute code name I don’t think I can change this without recreating the set and I have too many products on the website to make this practical – unless you know different.

I have tried a pack of socks and also a T-shirt and they both produce the same error message:-
Listing is missing required item specific(s): “Size”. Please provide the required item specifics.

I have different attributes and attribute sets for the various types of product and each has it’s own name.

Hi Roger,
For the item specifics on the listing in M2Epro, make sure you have “Size” populated with any value, eBay will pick this up and then use the values from the simple products for the variation.

Hi Matt,
I can confirm that in the item specifics the “Size” (or in the case of shoe “Shoe Size”) is populated with the corresponding Attribute Label which in my case is “Chest Size” for the T-shirt and “Shoes Size” for the footwear.
I can also confirm I have double checked your first points – I have used the configurable product.
