eBay.com allows me to list only 10 items, why is that?

I have heard that many users can list more than 100 items, can someone enlighten me and help me in this regard.

Thanks in advance.

Happy New Year 2014

    Hello!
    This is one of the problems you will have with ebay, not pointed here by the eBay-connected products sellers.
    You can't do anything this will be your limit (10 products or $500). After 3 months you must call them and they change the next limit for 100 products (or $5000). After other 3 months and good activity plus phone-call to USA you will be fully functional.

    Yes, unfortunately this is the nature of Ebay (I do sell on Ebay and they've gotten better over the years, but there are still some problems). Your best bet is to call them. I don't think you NEED to wait 3 months (I could be wrong on this though.) 3 months will show your sales activity which will "persuade" them to raise your limit, but if you call them and discuss your goals or better yet- a basic business plan, they may be willing to raise your limit right away. Check the "contact us" link in Ebay. All the best!

      If you attache your bank account to your PayPal or get a PayPal Credit Card then this can help raise your limit. I would recommend the CC as I wouldn't want eBay accessing funds from my personal bank account.

    In your case - i assume you are running a .com.uk account - it's a thing called "cross border trading".

    If your account is already established in UK all it takes is some patience. Sell to the allowed limit each month and you shall get your raises - maybe.
    Some people wait for an eternity for them to raise the limits , others get them monthly.

    Calling in has resulted in LOWER limits for quite a few people lately - another way for ebay to collect personal data.

    Don't feel bad. I've been member of oBay since 1997 with a 100% feedback rating. After a break of a couple years to let the problems get dealt with, I came back last year and ended up with a limit of 50 or 100 items and a selling limit of $5000 or so.

    To me, it didn't matter since I refuse to pay listing fees. Whatever free listings they offer is my limit.

    After about 6 months, I logged in to a $30,000 and 400 item limit. Even accidentally made powerseller (bronze) and top rated seller status .

    FWIW, I never recommend anyone make eBay a full time thing as they are generally uncaring as to seller problems. They consider buyers to be their customers (is that insane or what?) And of course it is the sellers that pay all the fees to eBay.

    I'm not sure I think their fees are too high... except for the company insanity that feels that they should get 10% of whatever it costs to mail or ship an item.

    Anyone with brains realizes there is no such thing as free shipping. Subsidized shipping would be a better description. But as in IM, people shut off their brains when they see something advertised as "free."

    If you decide that making a living on eBay is what you want to do, make sure you do your VERY BEST to maintain good customer feedback. I pack for nuclear explosions and generally ship/mail the same or next day after receiving the PayPal notification. That has helped my feedback a lot.

    Best of luck to you!

    P.S. - I've never seen a company work so hard to destroy the community that built it.

    Yes, their fee's are high but so is their traffic. And for the 10% cut on the ship cost - say thanks to all them sellers ( and I am not only pointing the finger at the Chinese ) who sold a 20.00 dollar item for 99 cents and charged $ 29.50 for shipping.
    I would not like to get ripped off either.

      By saying thanks to the sellers who abused shipping costs, are you are saying that eBay is enept and unable to deal with problems of their own making?

      If so, I fully agree .
