Default selling the same item twice - bin

Can i list the same item twice on the same account with bin if i change the prices and delivery costs slightly? Or will one auction get bombed and a flag against my account?

No should be fine listing the same item on the same account because you might just have 2 of the same item..?

However, if you are looking at doing the same thing on multiple accounts change prices, descriptions, layouts, wording you name it

yes yes yes very good advice

i list 100+ of exactly the same item one one particular account

same description same price

identical items apart from the titles

been ok for 3 years with it

BUT

changing desciption/prices/title/layout is the way forward

I sell a few new items and if I list them the same title price etc they will take them all down except one.

Test it and they did.

Changed the title, description, picture etc and not a problem.

Not allowed if completely identical but variation is doable - just be wise about it.

good idea,

lets say i try and relist a item and ebay rejects it saying that i cant list anymore in that catergorie this month. Can i just list it in a different catergorie or will ebay come down on me for being sneaky?

When I get this message I change the title and a few words in my first sentence of the description and move it to another category.

Works for me.
