    I think you can list multi items, or list a 'Dutch' auction where you have multiple of the same item for the same price...

    gimai, Diane is correct. There are several ways you can go about this.

    You can list a single auction with multiples of the same item inside it. If you list it as a regular auction, that listing is for the sale of all of the items at once, together. If you list it as a Dutch auction, bidders can choose the number of items from your total number that they want to buy. For example, if you have ten of the same item listed together as a Dutch auction, I can choose to bid on 5 of them. You will then have 5 left over in that auction that you can still sell to someone else.

    You can list the same items individually as seperate auctions. The easiest way to do that is to list one item, then, from the "Selling" link in your Members Area, click the "sell similar" link beside the auction you just listed. The forms will be prefilled with the previous info; the item will be placed in the same category, and you can change the description, price, or other details as needed. That's the route I chose to take with the two Phrag SA x amazonica crosses I put up. Same grex, but with enough variation in my mind to warrant seperate listings.

    You can open an orchidBids Store. Depending on the tier you select, you are given a certain number of auctions you can list in your store which are exempt from listing fees. Remember, though, that Stores are their own entities. Items listed in your store will not show up in the categories of the main auction site. To list an item in both the main auction site and your Store, enable a Store, then choose the "Both" link at the start of the listing setup process. Listing fees will then, of course, apply.
