There are some Rabanim that do not allow you to sell via your own website on Shabbos / Yom Tov. If you sell books on Amazon.com or Half.com where you do not collect the money nor fulfill the order on Shabbos / Yom Tov (as they process the credit card and first give you the money at a later date) would it still be Assur to leave your listings active on Shabbos / Yom Tov?
