Hello All I wanted to ask, if there is a way to use the same listing for repeat items? I mean like I sell tops so is there a way to use that but just change the picture? Question

You can create one listing, and then copy it to quick-start another similar listing. Is that what you mean?

Once you have created the first one, look at the right-hand side of your Products list in the Admin page. There are 5 little icons, a G, a camera, a pencil, 2 sheets of paper, and a big red X. The 2 sheets of paper icon is the "Copy" button. It will create a copy of that listing except for the picture; you just go down the page and change what needs to be changed for the new listing, inserting the new picture, etc., and then hit Add & Exit at the bottom.

Hope that helps! Very Happy

I don't know if it's gonna be a problem for you to use the exact same ads and only change the picture.

Maybe that is okay since the pics are different, but there is a restriction on selling the same item, and your wording being exact makes it seem that you have a bunch of the same item.

I did see that you are indeed selling different items, but maybe add the color or some other text detail in your title to show the google search bots that you are really selling individual unique items.

I didn't go and look at the items; I was thinking about selling something "similar."

DYRM is right, you shouldn't have identical titles with only the photo being different. Maybe call one "Ladies Medium Top Blue print" and another one "Ladies Medium Top Pink stripe" or whatever they are. The descriptions should be different, too, and describe that particular item (blue print, long-sleeve, etc.).

The Copy button is a way to quickly start a new listing instead of starting from scratch, but each ad should be unique.

I hit the copy button... add the new pic & then switch some words around in the title.... "Green shirt".... "Shirt Green"... sorta like that. Something in the title should be different... size, color whatever.

BECAREFUL
You keep using the exact same title and the exact description
the descriptions is worthless and does not describe what you are selling very well at all

Good Luck

You need to do major work on your titles and descriptions. You should be listing the material, color, style keywords and measurements. You are selling used clothing and a large may not be the same number of inches once it is laundered.

Another thing you are way way off about is your shipping, particularly outside the US mainland. People looking for low cost budget clothing will not pay double for the shipping of a $5 top. A lot of your tops could easily ship via first class mail (under 13 ounces) and therefore are the same to US, HI, and AK. Even if you send them priority flat rate, the fee is the same.

If you read their text info - about us, terms etc ... they don't do that. Since they sell WHOLESALE

wish them all the luck.

Although they say they sell wholesale, some items are up for sale as one item and then others as lots. All coming out to about $5 a pop for used clothes.
