    Hi, first post here! :)

    I am not that new to egay, i have had my account for quite a few years now and it has about 250 feedback, not that much i know, but okay to start selling.

    I have a product i want to sell on ebay, they go for about £10 each but i can get them for cheap. Now i want to know the best way to list a large quantity of items. (the market i am looking into is saturated btw, but i want to start somewhere)

    My question:

    Is it best to put up a 30 day fixed price listing, set the quantity to 50 and use 'feature first' option? It will probably cost about £150 with listing fees and even more for seller fees, but if i sell all of the items in the 30 day period, that would be about £500 with £250-£290 profit (including egay fees) i think. I am curious how you would sell a lot of products in a saturated market, is this the way to go? Or should i list a lot of regular buy it now listings?

    Also, is it worth opening up an egay shop, although i am just starting so i don't think i should be thinking about that yet.

    If this had been discussed before (and i am now thinking it most probably has) then i apologise...
