Perhaps you are feeling like a superhero after a stretch of successful eBay sales. Then all of a sudden… selling limits? You’re unable to put up new listings. Your Good-till-cancelled listings end automatically. What are these invisible forces holding you back?
Here’s how you can easily increase your selling limit and boost your sales!

But hold on…. what are selling limits?

selling limits maximum items

The maximum number of items you can list at once, or

selling limits dollar value

Total dollar value of items you can sell before hitting a threshold (aka limit) and are not able to list more items.

All sellers, new or experienced, have a selling limit on their account. It is how we check in with you to see whether you are managing your sales, whether your business is growing and whether you’re sustaining growth at a healthy rate. It is also how we maintain a secured marketplace where buyers feel safe making purchases. New sellers that have never requested for a selling limit increase will have a default limit of 10 items and USD$500.
