Selling multiple items
Listing and selling multiple items
You can list multiple identical items in one fixed price listing. When you create a fixed price listing, you specify a Buy It Now price for each item. Buyers can purchase your items immediately without bidding and waiting for an auction to end.
When selling multiple items at a fixed price, it pays to choose a longer duration, such as 10-day, 30-day, or Good 'Til Cancelled.
If you often sell the same items, find out how listing them together at a fixed price can improve your standing in search results.
Here's how it works:
Note: The process for creating a listing with variations has a few more steps. Learn more about creating listings with variations.
To create a fixed price listing, you must have a Feedback score of at least 0.
Displaying the quantity of items in your listing
If you have more than 10 of the same item to sell, you can have the listing display the text "More than 10 available" or show the actual number of items available.
To select whether to show the exact number of items:
Note: If you're viewing your own listing for an item, it will show the exact quantity that you have.
Good 'Til Cancelled listings and the out-of-stock option
If you're selling multiple identical items in a single fixed price listing with Good 'Til Cancelled as the listing duration, you can select the out-of-stock option in My eBay > Site Preferences to help manage the visibility of your listing.
When you enable the out-of-stock option:
Using the out-of-stock option on your Good 'Til Cancelled listings may help protect you from receiving a transaction defect for running out of stock. Learn more about our seller performance standards.
Insertion fees and credits:
With a Good 'Til Cancelled listing, we charge an insertion fee every 30-day period from the time you create it until all the items in the listing sell, you end the listing, or we end the listing. Fee amounts are based on the terms in effect when you create the listing and when it renews. Learn more about our standard selling fees.
If you enable the out-of-stock option, and your Good 'Til Cancelled listing has a quantity of 0 for the entire 30-day billing period, at the end of that period you may qualify for an insertion fee credit and a credit of any advanced listing upgrade fees applicable to that period. Learn more about receiving insertion fee credits.
If your listing has a quantity of 0 for the entire 30-day billing period for 3 consecutive 30-day billing periods, we end it.
