Default ebay multi listings

Do you look at the multi listings, pick a card, etc when searching ebay? If not, why?

I was thinking about moving to that model so I could list more, my fee's are getting ridiculous.

Sorry, but I don't understand the question. Are you asking if I look at the seller's other items if I see something I'm interested in?

when you do a search say 1939 playball or any year, player, for that matter; and it comes one of those pick a card, choose any card, types of listings, etc. Do you actually click and look?

Like one of these type; the below is not mine just an example.

You can have 1 eBay listing that, as an example you can sell an entire set in. With in the listing there is a drop down with each card priced separately.

I rarely buy from them because most sellers do not have pics of each card listed.

This is an example. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1974-Topps-...AooqPpt6gZfC4A

I have experimented with both types of listings....individual listings for single cards and multi item listing for a group of single cards(all cards pictured front and back). I listed multiple cards as singles and some of the same cards within a multi item listing, and the singles seem to sell much quicker for me than the items listed in multi item listings. Possibly over time as more sellers adopt this method, buyers will be more inclined to scroll through up to 250 cards on a single listings rather than the traditional method of item by item.

I spoke to an ebay CSR and he questioned me about listing different cards in this method and said it could be construed as trying to avoid listing fees. Some larger sellers, such as Burbank and COMC use the multi item listing method for listing multiple copies of a single card. Most sellers use the multi item listings for set breaks, not to list multiple copies of the same card.


IMO, the multi item listings are great for inexpensive commons, but not likely for cards worth much more than a few dollars.

Ahh, I understand now. As a set builder, I like those types of listings. I've seen it done 3 ways:

1) One listing, pick any 10 (or 20, 50, etc) cards from the same set (a list to choose from) for one set price.

2) One listing, pick individual cards from the same set with each card priced individually (as in Ben's example).

3) One listing, same year/player lots, several of the same card to choose from. May be priced differently based on condition. Dean's does this a lot. I can search by a year, player and condition and usually have several of the same card to choose from within the same listing. Dean's scans each individual card so I can pick the best one from the listing.

If I was a set builder that type listing would be enticing.

I have been using them lately for the duplicate T51s and 1952 Topps that I had PSA graded. People are looking at them and buying from them. What is surprising to me is that they only allow you to use "variations" in some item classifications, but not others. I wish the guys in the Tobacco Card section of eBay were allowed to use variations for individual cards in a set. Openbinders (sponsor on the nonsports side) would probably be able to have it much easier when he lists thousands of cards on eBay in a day and I have to wade through them all over again.
I wish eBay would let every category use variations. One of the other things it allows you to do is get more words into the title field for generic (non "Advanced") searches. eBay is now charging crazy prices to get another 50 words in the title, whereas in a variation listing, you can use your first 80 (or whatever) character count explaining the set, and the variations to get specific on individual cards.
Here's an example of mine:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/19246314713...84.m1555.l2649
Out of the five cards in the main photo, I have already sold three. I also try to crop all the pictures in the variations so you see exactly the card you're getting when you select it in the dropdown, and it's oriented properly. I'm not sure what this does when PSA or VCP try to scrape the data for their auction prices realized. PSA tries to read the certification number using Optimal Character Recognition (OCR), but I'm not sure if they just use the top picture or dig into the individual photos.
I have sold $10 cards and $100 cards this way. I'm sure if you list your item and people find it in the keyword search and it's what they want, they won't ignore it because it's part of a variation listing.

I hate those things cuz the seller typically loads em up with tons of cards... drop down box is long and any selection that isn't near the top takes forever to load... I gave it a try several times but have now just avoided them... just my .02

Just something I noticed now that I've been using these for a little while: If you relist the multiple listings without removing the variation for specific cards, eBay doesn't keep track of which of your cards have sold.
I relisted mine after coming back from vacation (no store means no "I'm on vacation" for some reason) and noticed that a bunch of my 1952s and T51s that had sold previously were now listed as in stock. Had to manually delete the variations for them to disappear from the listing permanently.
