Auto relisting items - got myself into a pickle!

Does anyone know anything about how automatic relisting works for private sellers on ebay?

I put 10 items on ebay two weeks ago, last Sunday 6 sold. All good. Then ebay automatically relisted the 4 items that did not sell. (I remember ticking the box saying I wanted the items to be auto relisted, assuming it would just relist them once).

So, this week, 3 of my automatically relisted items have sold. But one has not, and ebay has again automatically relisted the item.

So, my questions are:
1. How long will this automatic relisting go on for?
2. If so, will I incur any penalty for this constant relisting?
and, finally
3. How do I 'unlist' the item?

Have googled this and scoured ebay for help with this query... but to no avail. So hoping one of you mumsnet experts can help.

Thank you very kindly in advance.

As far as I'm aware auto relisting is a free service from ebay. If you want to end the listing just click end listing and 'tick' the reason why. Hope that helps

'end' is one of the 5 options at the bottom of your listing box, when you go to my ebay, then All selling

Thanks, littlecloud. I was under the impression ending an item was bad form on eBay, so was reluctant to do that. No one is even watching the item, let alone bidding, so guess I would not be letting anyone down..,, but would eBay penalise me for this?

No it's fine you are under no contract to sell smile I end stuff if it's sold on gumtree or if i've simply changed my mind.

Thanks littlecloud :-)

Do you pay extra listing fees though? I am always waiting for the free listing days.
