Justin Schmauser from the Bing support team has posted a thread in the Bing Shopping Help forums asking those merchants who have inactive FTP accounts to let him know.

Over the past weeks or so, many merchants began complaining they have inactive FTP accounts, not allowing them to upload product data to Bing Shopping.

In response to this, what appears to be, wide spread issue, Justin from Microsoft posted a thread with steps these merchants should take.

He said in the Bing Shopping Help thread:

Please reply to this thread if you have one or more of the following issues:

You signed up for an adCenter account more than 10 days ago and your FTP account is still listed as Inactive. You are moving from providing your feed via Microsoft download to providing it via Merchant upload, and your FTP account is Inactive. You had an Active account but have not updated your feed file in the last 30 days, so your account has been changed to Inactive.

Please do NOT post any of your account information! This includes your account number, user name(s), and any passwords you have for the account.

What to include in your post:
* Company name
* Day you signed up for your account
* Which of the 3 above reasons describes your situation (or give short explanation if your issue is different)

Here is a picture of what an inactive FTP account looks like in the Bing Shopping console.

Some shops sell secondhand goods. Often the public can also sell goods to such shops. In other cases, especially in the case of a nonprofit shops, the public donates goods to these shops, commonly known asthrift stores in the USA or charity shops in the UK. In give-away shops goods can be taken for free. In antique shops, the public can find goods that are older and harder to find. Sometimes people are broke and borrow money from a pawn shop using an item of value as collateral. College students are known to resell books back though college textbook bookstores. Old used items are often distributed thoughsurplus stores.
