You exceed the number of items and amount you can list

Updated on June 4, 2024

Full error name: “This listing would cause you to exceed the number of items and amount you can list. You can list up to *** more items and $**** more in total sales this month. Please consider reducing the quantity and Buy It Now price or request to list more. ErrorCode: 21919188 | It looks like you’ve reached the number of items you can list.


This error from eBay happens when you list so many items at such a price that, if all were sold, you would cash a currency amount beyond a given limit imposed by eBay.

This limit is set by eBay to protect buyers and create a safe environment for all.

The limit binds the number of items and their total value, both outstanding at a given moment, and per month.

Your limit will be raised when your eBay seller account gets more feedbacks, or becomes older and hence gets more trust.

Here is how to ask eBay to raise the limits.


The immediate solution is to publish fewer items or reduce their price.

If you can’t go this way, you can use Inventory control function.

When you activate this function offered by Nembol, you can actually put a cap, a maximum, to the inventory count published by Nembol to your eBay account.

Nembol hence holds in its database your correct stock count, but publishes your products with a reduced quantity just on eBay (e.g. 5 instead of 150).

This way, you will have enough space for more of your listings, may all of them.

Please note that when this function is active, your eBay items won't go in out-of-stock, because Nembol will restock them automatically as soon as you sell, until you really run out of stock.

How to activate the Limit Inventory Quantity function

  1. Access in Nembol the Channels tab.
  2. Click on Sync settings.
  3. Go to “Inventory control” section.
  4. Select the channels you wish to be affected by this function.
  5. Set a maximum quantity for display on all SKUs.
  6. Save changes.

This will set a maximum quantity listed to eBay on all your variations of all your listed products, and it will restock it as soon as sold, till you run out of inventory.

We suggest you keep it low, say 2 or 4 items, but not just 1, to avoid restocking issues. Select the channels you wish to be affected by this function.
