New to this - Having trouble with M2E listing on eBay -- Run Mode set to "Automatic"

I am very new at this.

I managed to generate 50 eBay listings using M2E Pro.

They were set for a 7 day auction – nothing special. It was to be a dry run like a test.

I expected them to expire after the 7 days but they have re-newed themselves.

Upon investigation in the log I noticed that ” Run Mode” was set to “Automatic”.

I reviewed the documentation , tutorials and tried several things but could not find a way to change the “Automatic” setting to “Manual”.

I also cannot delete the listings because they are “ACTIVE” for the next 4 days.

Is it possible to alter this setting while the listing is ACTIVE or do I have to end the listing?

I would like the listing to finish it’s current run and not re-new again.

Also, one of the items sold and was re-listed despite not having any available inventory in my Magento site. Is this possible?

Any help is appreciated.

We haven’t covered listing as auctions in our tutorials, we always show how to add listings on a GTC (good til cancelled) BIN listing. If you have been through the M2E documentation for auctions I could only suggest contacting them to see what they advise.
