There, you have to select “Relist continuously until an item sells”, which will do the relisting job for you automatically.

4: Search similar items and post “sell” from there:

Just think, you have a bunch of 20 items and you want it to list as fast as possible on ebay.com, for this I have a solution for you. Just enter your item name (as much info as possible) and find the similar product from the search result. Open the item by clicking on the already listed items title. Now, you will see a button “Sell” or “Sell an item” or “Sell it yourself” link as shown in the image below.

If you select this option, you would not have to fill all the item details such as Model Name, Style, Color etc. Just make some changes according to your need and enter your description. I would not recommend to copy the description from other’s listing as it sounds as an illegal act in Ebay policies.

5: Use Ebay’s own quick listing tool:

Ebay has started a new feature, which will help you to list your item faster by filling important fields. It’s really quick.
