Approvals
After reading through the auction primer and doing a search, nothing turned up to define “on hold” vs “inactive”.

I’m aware that “on hold” lots can be activated at some future date but is there any other difference between on hold and inactive? Is it better to select one or the other for specific situations?

Thanks to anyone who replies to my query.

"On Hold" is its complete and waiting to be released. It is released when you click on "Activate on Hold" in the sellers menu.

Inactive means you are holding on to it for some reason rather than releasing it to "On Hold" or "Active".

Edit

If I remember correctly, if your item is in the "On Hold" and you had in the listing that the item was to last 7 days, the "On Hold" will automatically list it after the 7 days.

Thanks, Ian.

So inactive is for lots that are not complete or ready to be activated for many reasons. On hold is for lots that can be activated, but are being delayed for various reasons.

re: Difference between inactive and on hold lots

The "On Hold" is ideal when you prepare several items in the morning but don't want to list them until 8pm. At 8pm you go into "Activate On Hold" and list them.

Also if you put an item into "On Hold" you can change the number of days of all the items in "On Hold". When you started listing and you put 7 days for the duration and you discover that rather than 7 days you wanted to change to say 12 days that can be done in " Activate On Hold".

I normally list during the day put things in "On Hold" and release them around midnight. I am 5 hours ahead time wise so if I list at 10 am my time it is only 5 am in North Amerca. I find it is best for items finishing around 7-8pm your time.
