How can I end my listing immediately?

If needed, you can end your listing before the scheduled end date. If there are bids on your item, you can cancel them.

Reasons for ending listings early include:

  • The item is no longer available for sale.

  • There was an error in the starting price or reserve amount.

  • There was an error in the listing.

  • The item was lost or broken.

To end your listing early:
  1. Type your item number into the End My Listing Early form. (You can get this number on your listing, on your confirmation email, or on your My eBay page.)

  2. If there are bids on your item, choose between

    Cancel bids and end listing early or Sell item to winning bidder(s) and end listing early

    (If your item has no bids, you can skip this step).

  3. Choose the reason you're ending your listing early.

  4. Your listing will end and will no longer be displayed on eBay. If there were bidders, they will be emailed that their bid was cancelled and the listing ended early.

Consider revising your listing first if there are aspects of it you want to change or improve.
