This update does affect your listings, so there's a few things you need to know.
The main benefit of this update is that you will now be able to list items with the quantities you have in stock, rather than one item per listing. Buyers will be able to order more than one of a listed item at a time – any quantity up to the number you've specified in stock.
Now, the easiest way to pay to list more would be to charge a larger upfront fee, but we don't think that's fair on you, so we've come up with an alternative that we feel is more supportive to Felt sellers. Bear with us, because this is where it gets a little complicated!
As of Monday 21 November, when you list an item, you can specify the quantity you have in stock. For this initial listing, you pay the standard listing fee of 50 cents, regardless of the quantity.
When you sell more than one item in one transaction, you will be charged an additional point of sale listing fee of 50 cents per item sold, as well as the usual 5% commission on the total sale. The buyer will pay your standard shipping cost for the first item, and your "with another item" cost for each additional item.
Your listing then updates to reflect the remaining quantity available. You can alter this quantity with no extra charge at any time during the lifetime of the listing.
Essentially instead of paying an upfront cost, you pay as you go and the additional listing fee is only charged on items that sell. It just felt like the right thing to do.
In order to change over to this new system, we have to update existing listings on Felt as well. If your listings are set to auto-relist, they will default to a quantity of one in stock. If you have more than one available, you will need to pop in to your shop and edit the listing to show the quantity you have. As we already mentioned, there's no additional charge for altering the quantities on your listing.
We know it's a bit of a pain to sort this out and we do appreciate your understanding as we introduce these changes. We hope it will result in increased sales for you and a better Felt!
