I'm trying to sell 19 identical items. First I tried creating the listing as "similar" to the last thing I listed. When I got down to Quantity, I clicked Lot. "Number of Lots" was greyed out and inactive. "Number of Items" was my only option.
I thought the problem might be that I was using an established template with which I had sold just a single item. So I started again with "Create New". Still, "Number of Lots" is inactive; visible, but greyed out. I can enter the number of Items, though.
So let me start with the basics: I'm selling 19 sets of silk thread. Each set has 15 skeins of thread. The buyer bids per set, then purchases as many of the 19 sets as he or she would like.
Is this one lot of nineteen items? Or is it 19 lots (sets) of 15 skeins?
