German ebay items sometimes do not display on .com site, why?

title says all.

Both tested items ship 'worldwide', why does one open on ebay.com and the other not?

Can someone how I can see in my finding api search result that such an item does not show on ebay.com and should (apparently) be opened on it's originating site.

 

Help would be appreciated!

There was a redesign but this issue still exists. German ebay, item, shipping worldwide, on ebay.com it shows:

 

This listing (1234) has been removed, or this item is not available.

    • Please check that you've entered the correct item number
    • Listings that have ended 90 or more days ago will not be available for viewing.

 

When I change the url to ebay.de the item appears to not be removed at all!

I suppose ebay is still clueless

Thanks for the help EBAY!

 

I may be onto something here, while comparing many of these auctions carefully... it seems that when someone ships 'Worldwide" and does NOT offer Paypal (!?!?) the auction is NOT viewable on ebay.com!

 

Remarkable!

btw, the new logo is way less outspoken then the old one, bad move!
