Default Listing more than one quantity at a time questions.

It seems that fairly regularly I have someone convo me because they want 2 or more of a particular item. Then we have to write back and forth and, in some cases, I end up making a special listing for them.

So walk me through the pros and cons of listing multiple quantities at one time. I have only listed one available so far.

I only list one at a time becuase if you list multiple quantities..you have to pay multiple listing fees. So fo me it is easier and cheaper to set up custom listings for larger quantities.

I set up special listings, too, but if you have a popular item you can list 2. I would do that for bows that were great sellers, then it avoids all the back-and-forth.

I agree... it is cheaper in the long run to just list quantity one. Then if someone wants two, you can easily set up a private listing. With Etsy's new COPY option, it is super easy to make a private listing and that way you'll know that the person will be buying it, so you're not wasting your $0.20.
Plus, I enjoy chatting with buyers on Etsy! And that also works well if they want a custom designed bow/item.

I list only one of each. I will create an extra listing for a popular bow whenever I don't have something new to add to my shop. I like to spread out my listings so that I have a better chance of being found in the searches. HTH
