Just got it and increased most of my listing quantities through Craftopolis! Didn't increase some where I was unsure of my inventory - I'll check those tomorrow.

Maybe its me but what's so great about this feature? You're still paying the fees just not upfront. There's no cost savings for listing multiples unless you do not sell all of your items...so why overlist anyway?

For sellers like me who are in a VERY different time zone than 75% of my customers, this is a godsend! Instead of have listings that sell while I'm sleeping sitting dormant all night, they will automatically renew and be available to my customers who are wide awake and ready to shop.

Edited to add that I've also had many people convo for different quantities than I have available - especially bags and labels and tags. How many people didn't convo and just moved on to someone else? Hoping to catch those customers too!
Also, selling fabric, it will be great for letting buyers know how much yardage is available. I love it...

When I was new to etsy, I wanted to buy something for my wedding, but needed more than what the seller had listed. I just clicked away, assuming she only had that amount available.

Many buyers will ask for greater quantities. But many won't bother too. Now we don't have to worry about losing those buyers. Yes we can just tell them to convo us if they want more, but many many many buyers do not read descriptions, they just look at the price and the pictures. At least they do for me. I have in the very first line "PLEASE NOTE: Processing time is 2-3 weeks...etc." and I still get a ton of emails asking me if I have shipped it yet, or saying that they needed it sooner etc. So I am sure there are plenty of people that just look at the title and if I'm not offering a large enough quantity they move on.
I don't see a note anywhere this is live yet in my shop. Where do you see it when it goes live?
Wow - I got the option last night, and increased most of my quantities. Woke up to 2 orders - 1 bought 2 of a particular headband, and 1 bought 3 of another headband. Worked just like it was stated: items were automatically renewed into recently listed in searches and to the top of my shop listings.
So glad to here it is working Christine! I'm so excited to get it!

So, if you have a single listing with multiple quantities, selling more than 1, or all of that listing's quantities, will still only count as 1 sale total in your shop sales count. Basically, in listing #xxx, the first 1 you sell from that listing (if it has multiple quantities available), will increase your shop sales count by 1, but subsequent sold quantities from that specific listing will NOT increase your shop sales count.

Hi Christine,

I think there's some misunderstanding. Your sales count is based on the number of transactions in your shop. A transaction happens when a buyer adds a listing to their cart, and completes checkout.

So yes, if a buyer buys 2 of your listing in a single transaction, that only counts as one sale. But, if a different buyer buys your listing again, or even if the same buyer buys your listing again, those also count as sales.

In other words, it's based on checkouts, not on quantity.

I hope that clears up the confusion!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!
