Has anyone experienced a problem today in either adding to or creating a collection? If so, do you have a solution? Normally you just click on the "add to collection" icon near the top of any of your listings and you'll then see a pull down of available collections that you've created as well as the ability to create a new one. Click or fill in as needed and submit and it's done. Today when I click on it, nothing happens. I don't see any announcement about an issue with this. Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. I think I figured it out. When eBay first introduced the Collections I know a lot of sellers began creating them using their own listings. It helped advertise our own products and promote sales. Ebay must have changed that, or else it was a glitch all along. Here's what I discovered a couple of days ago - if you go to someone else's listing and hove over the "add to a collection" icon, you will indeed be able to create a collection - with that seller's listing. I am not sure why we would want to do that on our own profile page, but I believe that this change from being able to create from our own listings is not temporary. I think this is the way eBay wants it. I had plans for collections based on the theme of my store, but have pretty much given up that idea now. I don't understand the reasoning, and don't see any information about this on eBay unfortunately. If anyone has more information, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

As of 2/26 I noticed I was able to add my own listings to my own collections once again. I don't know if the opportunity will go away or not or if the last month has just been a gigantic glitch, but it's a wonderful feature that I hope we can continue to use.
