Under the Duplicate Listing policy, sellers can't have multiple Fixed Price listings, multiple Auction-style (with the Buy It Now option) listings, or in both the Fixed Price and Auction-style (with the Buy It Now option) listings for identical items at the same time. We recommend you create a multiple quantity Fixed Price listing to sell identical items.
