If I read the fees policy correct, then I will pay $2.00 fees for for 10 items sold in one listing. Am I correct?

Then In that case, I would rather to create a custom list for $0.20 fee.

yep, i tested it out, i think for higher quantities its best to do a custom listing.
Katherine Kelly from Greencard says
So, it will renew just for having been sold?
------------------------

"It works like an auto-renew feature — when your item sells and you still have quantity left, your listing automatically renews for $0.20 USD. If your listing sells out, the total fees are effectively the same. If your listing doesn’t sell out within four months, your fees will be lower because you won’t pay for unsold quantities.""

Thanks for the clarification, you guys are great.
If I understand correctly, this how it will work once the new listing feature is available to you:

You have 10 mugs. You create one listing for the mugs, with a quantity of 10. You are charged 20 cents.

Buyer A purchases 4 mugs. The listing will now show a quantity of 6. The item itself is not renewed. It still has the original expiration date. You are charged 60 cents in fees, representing the cost of the listing fee of the additional 3 mugs you sold that you hadn't yet paid a listing fee for.

If I've got it wrong, please correct me.
the item itself is renewed with the remaining quantity of 6.
Will the renewed listing show up as *recently listed* in the search?

When the buyer purchases 4, you will be charged 80 cents in listing fees (60 cents for the three listings which were not previously charged, and 20 cents for the newly renewed listing).

The listing is renewed (with a quantity of 6), with a new expiration date of 4 months from the time of purchase (it will behave as if you manually renewed the listing).
Ah, thanks for the correction Chris.
In another word, I should refrain or resist from renewing (as I still renew everyday) when the quantity still has 6 mugs left. When they are all sold out, I would renew and add whatever quantity I like, and still be charged the 20 cents for the renewal.
Do we need to realist or is this automatic with our already listed items?
