How to create multiple item listings for fixed price on eBay

You can list multiple, identical items in one listing with a fixed price for each item. Buyers can buy whatever quantity they want at that price. In a fixed price listing, you need to sell your items for at least $1 each. To list in fixed price format, you need to do at least one of these things:
-- Establish your proof of identity with ID Verify (http://pages.ebay.com/services/buyandsell/idverify-login.html).
-- If you have a PayPal account, you need to have a feedback score of 15 and accept PayPal in your listing. -- If you don't have a PayPal account, you should be registered on eBay for at least 14 days and have a feedback score of at least 30.
-- If you're selling through a premium or anchor store, you also need to be PayPal Verified (https://www.paypal.com/helpscr?cmd=_help&locale=en_US&countrycode=US&_dyncharset=UTF8&t=solutionTab&ps=solutionPanels&solutionId=10568). Here's how it works:
1. When listing your item, select the fixed price tab, enter the Buy It Now price, and then enter the number of items for sale in the quantity field. If you don't see the Fixed Price tab or can't enter a number in the Quantity field, verify that you meet the requirements. 2. Buyers purchase one or more of your items by clicking the Buy It Now button on your listing. They can keep buying your items until they run out or the listing ends. If you have more than 10 of the same item, you can choose to show the quantity available as "more than 10" or show the actual number of items available. To select whether to show the exact number of items:
1. Go to My eBay and sign in.
2. Click the "Account" tab, and then click the "Site Preferences" link on the left.
3. Under Selling Preferences, click the "Show" link. 4. Click the "Edit" link next to "Show the exact quantity of items in your listing if the quantity exceeds 10."
5. Select either:
-- Display "More than 10 available" in your listing (if applicable).
-- Display the exact quantity in your listing.
6. Click "Submit."

How to successful selling things on Ebay?


Firstly, spend some time researching similar products on eBay and follow their bidding process. This easy step will ensure that you are able to understand and gauge interest in your product, and help you to determine a fair - and profitable - price. In addition, you can always find ways to improve the way you market your product by finding small flaws in your competition.
The more time you spend perusing the site the more prepared you will be to start selling on eBay.

Another suggestion to take into consideration is to learn all about shipping. As the seller, you have control. Some methods are clearly better than others, so you need to find the best one - taking cost and reliability into account. While shipping is not the most integral part to selling on eBay, a little bit of time spent learning about it will take you a long way.

Once your strategy for selling on eBay is in place, it is time to focus on appealing to the most potential customers - and turning them into buyers. In ecommerce, a picture really is worth a thousand words. Consumers truly do like to see things before they click the "buy" button. In order to be a successful seller, make sure you can obtain the most professional photographs of your product.

How to auction an item, but you have several in stock. How do you handle & location to enter the quantity. Customers have complained that they can only order one.


Hi there!
You can no longer list multiple Auction since the dutch auctiion is no longer available. You can only list one at a time but if you have multiple items, why not list it as a fixed price with multiple quantity? You can also try the variations if you have multiple variations of the listing.
The dutch auction is the type of listing format that eBay had before for multiple auction style but it's already been removed by eBay to promote the fixed price multiple listing format with variations.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

I listed a blue vase, I have two low bids right now, my listing was under auction. Now I have buyers who want me to sell them the item under Buy Now, which I did not place a buy now price when I listed. I told them both because I have a bidder, I cannot go back and set a Buy now price? Am I correct about this? And can I place a reserve on this item after the fact? Please help me.

Hi there!

It seems that it's been a month since you sent the email here on Fixya but I will help you on how you can do this on your future listings.
If your item has already bids you can no longer edit or revise but you can end the listing if there are still more than 12 hours left before it ends. you just need to cancel the bids first and end it. then you can relist the item as a fixed price listing depending on the price that the buyers like to pay for it.
the reserve price only works for auction and you need to put it before you list the item.

Here's how you can end your listing early:

1. Go to: http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/end_early.html
2. Click the "End My Listing Early form" link. You may need to sign in.
3. Enter your Item number, and click the "Continue" button.
4. If there were no bids on your item, go to Step 6.


5. If there are bids on your item, choose either "Cancel bids and end listing early" or "Sell item to high bidder(s) and end listing early."
6. Select the reason that you're ending your listing early.
7. Click the "submit" button to end your listing.

Your listing will end and bidders will receive an email explaining that their bid has been canceled.

Hope this helps you on your future listings. Have a great day!

I want to buy an item. The are two labels on site: BUY IT NOW (not activated) and TIME LEFT (2 days 26 hrs) How to participate at this auction and to win, please? Thank you for your explanation!


eBay has auctions and fixed price items. You can tell an item is for auction if it has a "Place Bid" button. The fixed price listings simply have "Buy it Now" buttons. A listing can be both an auction with a "Buy it Now" option in which case both buttons will be there. The Time Left however doesn't mean a listing is an auction because even fixed price listings expire on eBay.

How do you put a reserve price


A reserve price is the lowest price at which you’re willing to sell your item. If you don’t want to sell your item below a certain price, you can a set a reserve price. The amount of your reserve price isn’t shown to your bidders, but they will see that your auction has a reserve price that has not been met. If a bidder doesn’t meet that price, you aren’t obliged to sell your item. Once the reserve price has been met, the reserve price text is no longer displayed.
Why have a reserve price? Many sellers have found that too high a starting price discourages interest in their item, while an attractively low starting price makes them vulnerable to selling at an unsatisfactorily low price. A reserve price helps with this.
Note: The reserve price option is only visible in the online auction format; it’s not visible for fixed price or classified ad listings. It’s also not available for Multiple Item auctions.
All Reserve Price Auctions are subject to a Reserve Price Auction Fee.
You may lower your reserve price after you receive bids on the item.
Note: To keep eBay a safe place for buyers and sellers, eBay limits how bid history information is shown. User IDs are not shown—buyers are identified only as anonymous names throughout the duration of the auction, even if you lower the price. Only you, the seller, can see the user IDs of bidders on your items.
