Listing Variations Limited to 250 on eBay?

Some products we sell will not list onto eBay with the variations we require. I believe this may be because eBay limited the combined variation options to 250. This seems very low to me. I may have this wrong but every product with large variation options will not list correctly.

Below is an example link to our website which shows a product that will only list on eBay without the variation options.…..ning-table

On that listing we offer – table colour and size, cloth colour, ball type, and delivery options. We do not really want to reduce these variations as we do not feel the customer gets the full facts when ordering. From my understanding we have 1800 variations on that one listing alone?

Has anyone else had these issues and is there a way around it? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi David,

Unfortunately this is a limitation at eBay’s end, the only exception being in the motors category I believe. As it stands I don’t know of a way round this without splitting the listing up so the different variation options are split amongst multiple listings
