Selecting a listing duration
You can schedule listings to start at the day and time you choose—up to 3 weeks in advance. You can create your listings at your convenience and control the time they start and end.
What to consider
Your buyers: Many buyers watch items for a while and think about them before placing a bid or using Buy It Now. A longer duration may be to your advantage.
Shipping time: If your item is related to a certain event (for example, a ticket for a concert or a holiday gift), choose a listing end time that gives you enough time to ship the item to the buyer in time for the event or holiday.
Changing the duration
If 2 or more hours have passed since you submitted a listing, you can't change the duration of your listing.
Seller requirements for 1-day listings
For a 1-day listing, you must have a Feedback score of at least 10. If you don't meet this requirement, you won't see the 1-day option when you list an item.
Listings end in whole-day increments from the listing's start time. For example, if you submit your listing at 2:30 pm on Sunday and select a duration of 3 days, your item will end at exactly 2:30 pm on day Wednesday.
