Using Custom Attribute to Set eBay Category and its affect on Item Specifics

I have tried contacting M2EPro regarding this question, but haven’t had any luck on a response. Hopefully someone in the forum can point me in the right direction.

I am currently using a Magento Custom Attribute to set the eBay category (using the eBay Category ID – ie the specific number for the category) AND I have Item Specifics defined by category (Sell on eBay->Configuration->Categories in Use), but when I go to List Item on eBay, the item will not list because it says certain Item Specifics are not set, even though my Item Specifics are defined in my Listing Description AND in the Categories in Use (AND the fields in the product are all field in appropriately). What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help in advance.

It could be that there are some specifics on your products that might have been overlooked. Since you did say that some of your products have posted while some did not, maybe it might help to look into the products that have been posted and find out what might be missing on those that have not. It would be good to go over the listings you made in order to determine where the errors might be coming from.
