The RelistFixedPriceItem call can be used to to relist fixed-price item that has ended. It is recommended to use this call instead of creating a new listing using the AddFixedPriceItem call to take advantage of the recent sales score associated with the listing.

Here is a C# RelistFixedPriceItem sample for re-listing a multi-variation item; a variation from the original listing is deleted and a new variation is added during the relist operation. This sample has been written using the .NET SDK v817.

*Prerequisite - make sure to have added an item with the SKU and variations below

Below is the code. Corresponding SOAP request is attached with this article.
