If your products show an eBay validation error like this:


"ebay validation error: UPC should only contain digits" and it is followed by scientific notation.


It means that an update has gone wrong somewhere, most likely while updating Product Identifiers in your store via copy/paste from Microsoft Excel which changed number field for this Product identifier e.g. UPC to this "9.111E+12".


This eBay validation error can also occur if your UPC contains non numeric characters, e.g. 14500-459-1111, these should be removed.


You can also get this error with UPC's containing letters, eg when the SKU or the MPN has been placed in the UPC field, again either remove UPC or update it with the correct one.

Please check this data on your store and correct it, once done, go to the dashboard and click "Sync now" to refresh the data.
