    Hello, on ebay are options to select duration for fixed price as a days or Good' Till Cancelled.

    Any opinions? Just renew listing when its duration ends or stay Good' Till Cancelled?

    And does it renew your listing automatically every 30th day?

    If you open a shop then you can get GTC listings. They are like 30 day listing however they renew automatically every 30 days, and any listing fee's are then charged every time it is automatically relisted.

    Yes, that is why i asked about, wich option is beter duration as a days or GTC?

    And if listing fees ar charged every time it is automatically relisted, so what is the good points of this? Only that i don't have to relist it manually? Or something more? Or maybe even some bad aspects of using this option??

    I prefer days as you can control how long your item is up for easier

    But if i know, that price, picture, description, have to stay the same. It isn't very nice to renew for example 2000 items every month :D I think better would be if i would have to make changes for few items, i need.

    But respect for opinion, anyway ;)

    In my opinion GTC is still better, especially if you have hundreds of items. As relisting them all again every 30 days would be pain and a waste of time. GTC is a lot better for best match too, since sales history plays a huge role in how high you item is placed in best match. Plus there been no down time between the listing ending and it being manually relisted.

    I take it if you put it on a good until cancelled if you only have 1 of that item or say 3 of that item then as soon as they are sold it will just cancel the listing :)

    You are correct.

    Ebay also say once an listing ends (for whatever reason) if the it is relisted within 7 days the the new listing will have the same sale history for theo ld one and help with best match placement and I think placement in general. Which is good to know if an item sells out very quickly. However I haven't relisted enough to be able to prove this for myself.

    If you sell using Selling Manger you can create automation rules to relist if it doesn't sell. What are the fees for good until cancelled?

    The same as 30 days, as far as I know. I haven't used 30 days in a long time.

    Listing fee's are same as 30 days, I currently use 30 days and assign automation rules so that the items automatically re-list anyway but thinking about changing over to Good Till Cancelled myself, the problem with the automation rules is it doesn't keep any sales history once re-listed whereas I tink Good Till Cancelled does.

    You can also use eBay's inventory feature (I believe that comes only with Selling Manager Pro) and update stock levels as needed, without touching the listing itself.
