According to eBay help, any listing created on ebay.ca will automatically show up on ebay.com so long as it matches certain criteria, which it does.
I posted an item on ebay.ca, but it is not showing up on ebay.com. I've listed before without this issue. I have one item (posted 16 months ago) working fine, but the three listings I created yesterday will only show up on ebay.ca.
What is also interesting, is that I can find other people's listings that also behave the same (shown on ebay.ca, but not on ebay.com.)
Did something change? Are we all doing something wrong?

Yes your are, you have not indicated that you ship to the USA. If you don't select shipping and the shipping cost to the US it won't show up on the US site.

I looked at a couple of your listings and they show up on eBay.com
You have selected 'worldwide' shipping and are using calculated shipping which is as it shoudl be.
which item did you think was not showing on eBay.com ?

I did select International Shipping, but I left the service type blank because I wanted users to call for quotes rather than seeing a highly inaccurate or expensive shipping price. The ebay form submitted successfully with that field left blank.
After choosing any shipping service, the item showed up in the US listings.
Thank you very much for the help.
