How to Sell Multiple Quantities on eBay
Selling multiple quantities on eBay can save you time and money. There are two different ways to sell products on eBay -- auction or fixed price. Auctions help you sell items using a bidding system, while the fixed price format is used to sell items for a specific price. To sell multiple quantities on eBay, you must use the fixed price format.

Tips & Warnings
Displaying quantities in your listing can entice buyers to purchase your item.
Variations allow you to sell variants of the same product under one listing. For example, if you are selling a t-shirt in two different colors, creating a variation allows the buyer to select the color on the listing page. To create a variation, press the “Add Variation” link at the top of your listing page, and then fill out the details for your product.
Take eBay fees into account when you are setting your price.
How to Use a Quantity Sale on eBay
Anyone can become a seller on eBay's website. Quantity listings on eBay allow you to offer several identical items for sale in a single fixed-price listing. Buyers can choose how many of the items they want to purchase, and the listing remains on eBay until all of the items are sold or the post expires.
If you want to give buyers a discount for buying in quantity, you can create a separate fixed-price listing in which a certain number of items are offered in bundles or lots. EBay no longer allows auction-style listings for multiple items, also known as "Dutch" auctions.
1 - Sign in to your eBay account and click the "Sell" button on the toolbar to begin a new listing.
2 - Select a category and click "Continue."
3 - Create a title, complete the description section and add at least one photo to the listing.
4 - Enter the price for a single item in the "Buy It Now Price" field within the Choose a Price and Format section. If you prefer to sell your item in bundles or lots, in which the buyer must purchase 10 at a time, for example, list the price for the whole bundle. Also make sure the title and description sections make it clear you are selling bundles.
5 - List the number of items you have for sale in the "Quantity" field. If the field is grayed-out, click the "Fixed Price" tab to change the listing format. If you are selling in bundles, list the number of bundles available.
6 - Complete the rest of the listing form, including your payment shipping preferences, and then click "Continue. Review the listing and then click "List Your Item" to post it on eBay.
