The tags Ring Size is/are disabled as Variant

I am trying to list a silver ring as a Configurable Product with the option on Ring Size but I am getting the error “The tags Ring Size is/are disabled as Variant”

If I change the config att name from Ring Size to RingSize it will list fine but my listing then doesn’t show up if someone selects a ring size on ebay from the bar on the left.

Any ideas how I can get it to list and still show up on the ebay search once a Ring Size is selected?

That is because eBay is silly. The left bar picks up item specifics not variations. Ring Size is an item specific so you cannot use it for the variation name.

The following users say thank you to Greg for this useful post:

Thanks for that Greg.

I’ve changed it to “Size of Ring” now and it’s working :)
