Listing Limits

Selling limits are designed to help you grow your business in a manageable way. We automatically adjust your limits monthly, based on your sales volume and Feedback. 

You can check your limits from the Monthly Limits section in the Overview tab of the Seller Hub. We’ll let you know when you’re getting close to your monthly limit. You can request a limit increase directly from that message, or from the button below. 

Tip: If you have a second, more established seller account, you may be able to raise your limits. If your accounts can be linked, you’ll see that option when you request higher selling limits from our All Selling view in My eBay.

Category Limits

If you’re new to selling in a particular category, we might limit how much you can sell. This helps you manage inventory more efficiently, and allows you time to understand rules that may apply in that category. We’ll automatically remove most limits once you’ve established a track record. 

Make sure you list items in the correct category. If you’ve reached your monthly limit for one category, you shouldn’t list items in the wrong category, as this violates our search and browse manipulation policy.
