Can you see the limits thru your selling summary page?
I believe someone already posted this kind of limits before.

putting 3000 quantity is absolutely pointless. Period. if anything, it will make it worse. scarcity sells, not unlimited amounts of stuff. SO what will 3000 help you with exactly? How many do you sell a month?

I've been able to build a wholesale customer list of over 100 big buyers that now contact me directly, because of me originally allowing them to buy big amounts from my eBay listings.

Scarcity doesn't sell at all in my category. You'll just lose out on the bigger customers that you should really want to be serving. What I've found sells best is an account with a good reputation and massive sold counts following around all of the listings.
If he was selling 1000's, fine. But clearly they aren't, as they are only talking about being able to have the high quantity. If he said " i'm able to sell this many". fine. But he didn't. If he said what you said, also fine. But I do not believe that to be the case at all. He can prove me wrong tho if he wants. I'm open to it.

LoL, I think that'd be a record to hit that much in a month.

Either way.... split your sales to 1000 accounts to avoid issues :P

Still really want to know why it matters if you can put 3000 quantity.

Aside from opening you up to wholesale buyers, it's nice being able to set your quantity high and then not having to modify the listing for the next 6 months or so. It runs on autopilot until the quantity finally runs down.. then you add another 3000 to the available quantity.
I already addressed your comment. But you didn't really explain why having 1000's makes it easier o get customers that want 100's. I really doubt they care. If they see 100's. they will ask. it being 1000's, won't change their mind.

As far as autopilot. Well, Sure, why not. Not that it's that hard to take a few seconds to change quantity every couple months. Are you really going to leave the whole thing alone for 6 months?

I highly doubt either of those explanations are why the OP wants 1000's and I'd really like to hear their actual reason, aside from just wanting 1000's.

They'd just look for a bigger store that has the quantity they're looking for listed. It also makes bulk buyers more confident buying from you if you're giving the impression that you have a warehouse full of inventory waiting to sell.

Yes I'll really leave listings alone for 6+ months. I never have any reason to modify a GTC BIN listing. It'll drag your sales down if you have a long standing GTC listing with thousands sold that you suddenly modify details on.

Alright I'm done wasting my keystrokes, lol. Good luck extracting the proper answer that you're looking for from the OP.
Got proof on that dragging sales down for long standing listings??? Because I've never experienced such a thing

And i'm not looking for a proper answer from OP. I'm looking for AN answer.

?? hey dude, i have accounts with 1000/25k limits as well.
The accounts i talk about does not have these limits. ebay rep. told me my limits are 2billion.
Of course you start slow and build up the account.
After 90 days you start going wild .. there is NO 1000 LIMIT cap.
Very easy to understand.

I know how it feels to have high sales and put the listing at pause because the limits are reached for the month. Sometimes even if you call ebay in to get high limit it just wont work.

So if you have a list of 2000 items.. and each one you put 100 qty.. means you have a item limit of 200.000 .. this would be very difficult on a 1000 limit account correct?
With these accounts you can list after 90 days as much as you wish (always be realistic.)
.. Why make it always so complicated.

I just want to test it. If it triggers something. It didnt.
My qty per listing is usually 200-300 item.

LOL, well there ya go James

(Yes in my experience it does make a difference if you modify old listings. Naturally this isn't something I can prove - it's just an observation based on years of selling. I once had a charger set go from selling 100+/day to less than 20 a day because I added a few lines of text to the description. Since then I don't mess with old listings.. I just make new ones.)

Spread the listings and the risk over few accounts (referring to earlier posts)

doesn't answer my question what's so ever. I asked you why you need a 2 billion limit account and why it's not pointless for you to have listings with 3000 count each.

He didn't actually answer my specific question at all... I don't expect to get one lol so lets just chock it up to hyperbole

and fair enough on your last point. Tho I don't think changing quantity will do it. But I can understand not tempting fate.

Maybe some dropshipper in china needs a 2 billion account.

5000 /50

def not enough for me )
