Multiple Listing Fees Avoidance

If you intend to sell on one or more of eBay's international sites, you will need to accept, and we encourage you to carefully review, the User Agreement, policies, and other requirements of that site. You can continue to reach out to the relevant customer service teams on the respective eBay site of your listing or transaction, as may be applicable to the nature of your query.

Listing a single item but offering additional identical items for sale to multiple buyers in the item description (to avoid being charged for more than one listing) isn't allowed on eBay, unless the listing is in the Fixed Price listing format.

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:

  • Listing cancellation

  • Limits on account privileges

  • Account suspension

  • Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings

  • Loss of PowerSeller status


    Note: If you want to sell multiple items as a single lot to one buyer, you can use an auction-style or Fixed Price format. Just say in the item description that this is a single lot. For example, if you're selling four bowls as a single set, you'd indicate that this is a set of four bowls.

Instructing buyers that they can indicate the number of items they want for the same price isn't allowed.

Single listings that offer multiple items to avoid fees can put sellers who pay all their eBay fees at a disadvantage and undermines the trust and legitimacy of eBay’s marketplace.
