Issue with Syncing using Out Of Stock Control

I am experimenting with a Simple Item.

On my M2E eBay policy I have an item assigned to, I have the Out Of Stock Control enabled. I WAS having an issue, when I changed an item to Qty 0 (zero) on the Product. When doing a Synchronization under the Configuration screen, nothing was happening. Finally, on the Policy / Synchronization Tab, under Stop Rules, I set it up so:

And this solved the problem (i.e. going to the Sync screen under Config and clicking Run Enabled works, and my listing is now hidden from open eBay)

The problem I am now having and cannot figure out, is when I add quantity back to the product, and change it to in stock on the product inventory tab… When I run a Sync under the Config tab, it does not “unhide” my listing and put inventory to it.

What I DON’T want to do but have only been able to make it work this way, is click into the eBay Policy that the item is assigned to, and change the actions to “Revise Item(s) on eBay” and Click Submit to make it work.

I am hoping it is a setting I am missing somewhere, but I do not want to have to go into each “policy” everyday, filter for “Listed (Hidden)”, then select and submit them only to hope they’ll now have inventory behind them.

I want to be able to just go to Configuration and Sync/Run in there, which takes care of everything else (quantity changes, listing changes, etc, regardless of what policy it is tied to).

(we currently have over 300K+ sku’s / products that will be getting imported into the system)

Thanks for anyone’s times and advice.

I believe I have this solved…

I created a new policy, so the Sync settings were set back up with default sittings and that seemed to do the trick.

I believe something in the Relist section. Looking at the Log file of the item, it says something to the effect of trying to Relist, but since it see’s that it was previously listed, it forced a Revise instead.

Perfect :)
