    What is the point of canceling an ad and immediately relisting the same item?

    Does it bump back to the top as a new ad when you do that?

    Could be. I look at "New Posts" which captures both the old and new threads. Maybe sellers don't realize that and think there's some extra value of having their posts up front.

    Yes. It also allows sellers to have a "fresh" ad wherein they've fixed (hopefully) the problems in the first ad that caused the item to remain unsold.

    Relisting however cannot happen more frequently than every 7 days.

    Any item relisted in a shorter time will simply be deleted. Also, adding the word "relisted" to the title will get the title edited.

    Sometimes folks just relist to change the wording or photos - but again, if less than 7 days, it will just get deleted

    You will have to ask the people who are doing it, why they are doing this exactly.

    We don't have any idea.

    When you find out, let us know. That would be helpful information. :)

    Well no sellers have let us in on their secret reason yet.

    One fellow responded saying it was to get the item on the Swapmeet Hot List. Makes sense I guess. Rarely look at that since just a few items are visible and it changes quickly no item is there for long. OK for some who like the photos but many aren't so clear. Anyway that's his reason.

    If it doesn't sell after 7 days I will repost or relist the item. Whatever you want to call it. As @AJ4GQ says it will be a fresh ad with new eyes looking at it. Gives me a chance to adjust the price or ad new pictures etc.
