When you're ready to list your item, you'll start by describing what you're selling, choosing whether to use the auction or fixed price format, and setting a price. You'll then go on to select your shipping preferences, a return policy, and how you want to get paid.
You can also save a draft of your listing and go back to finish it later. There are no limits to how many drafts you can have in Seller Hub - opens in new window or tab, although they expire after 45 days. If you prefer to create your listings through the Selling section of My eBay - opens in new window or tab, you can save up to 20 drafts, and they'll be available for 30 days.
