Summary

If you list bundles items in consumer electronics, ensure that you have:

  • Set the item specifics name and values for bundled items
  • As a best practice, we recommend that you migrate to custom item specifics if you are using ID based attributes

If you do not set the item specifics for bundled items, you may run into ErrorCode 240, where the Message field for the error may indicate that you need to specify the bundles items as part of items specifics.
