  If there is an server error or network issue that the addSubscriberResponse as below failed to reach eBay, the subscription status for the affected user will stay in Pending.

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<cxmlns="http://www.ebay.com/marketplace/services">
  <ack>Success</ack>
  <timestamp>2011-05-18T16:34:09.423-0700</timestamp>
  <status>Approved</status>
  <message>Subscription Approved</message>
  <subscriptionId>5000004267</subscriptionId>
</addSubscriberResponse>


 You can change the affected user's status from Pending to Active via the User Management Tool. This action will trigger another subscription event for the same user and eBay will send the same addSubscriber request to your listener agagin.
