Default Making the same listing on the same ebay

Hello, I know that a seller cannot have 2 or more identical listings on the same ebay site, for instance, ebay.com

But you can have identical listings on different ebay sites, for example, on .co.uk and .com.

I have a GTC listing on .co.uk that has run out of stock and now has a quantity of 0. Do you think I could make exactly the same 30-day listing on .co.uk as the GTC listing is currently inactive, since it has 0 items quantity remaining?

No, eBay filters would stop you. You would have to slightly change the title/description.

so, if I change the title of GTC listing (that has 0 quantity remaining), but leave the photos and description the same and create 30-day listing which is the same (just with the original title) I should be okay then?

The repercussions of abusing ebays duplicate listing policy with GTC listings is that (presuming your using GTC to sustain your listing rank etc.) - if your listing is reported, and they review to find similar listings, they could either terminate all listings, or terminate all but leave one.

This in turn defeats the main reason people opt for GTC. So just a word of warning

Thank you. I have some questions tho

Why should anyone report my listing and how could they do that if people could see only one listing out of 2 (they could only see 30-day listing, since the GTC's quantity would be zero so it would be inactive and hidden from the search until quantity reaches more than zero) ?

What do you mean by saying 'they could either terminate all listings, or terminate all but leave one.' ?

By saying 'all listings' you mean all those listings that are identical to each other or ALL my listings in general?

Thank you for your help! Highly appreciated!

But what if I change the title of the GTC listing (which would be inactive and hidden due to quantity of 0)?
Titles would be different then so maybe ebay would not spot this, especially taking into consideration the fact that the listing would be inactive?

I have changed title only on identical listings and the listings have not been taken down so it can work - and plus, my listings were active

If you are asking for confirmation - yes I did this. Keep in mind that it might not always work but it has worked for me just for 2 identical listings, not many.

IF you can change it, to be safe, you should.
