of listings matching the Buyer’s query.
You can’t have
more than one listing of an identical item at the same time. Listings are
considered duplicates if they are for items that have no significant difference
between them, or if the listings appear to be for the same item in search
results. To prevent your listings from being treated as duplicates, make sure
you clearly show the differences in the title, price, condition, photo,
subtitle, item specifics, or in the parts compatibility areas of a listing. We
may also look at other parts of the listing, such as the description, to
determine whether it’s a duplicate. Certain types of listings, if they are for
identical items, can be considered duplicate listings even if the listing
format or details vary. Restrictions on duplicate listings can include
listing an identical item in different categories or listing an identical item
using different user IDs.
duplicate listings terms may affect whether your listing appears in search
results. We want buyers to see a wide range of options and reserve the right to
ensure that no one Seller can dominate search results. The duplicate listings
policy is designed to help you list in a way that makes it easy for Buyers to
find and compare items that interest them.

displayed on the Springcontacts.com Services. You may also be subject to a

with certain products.
listings for identical items compatible with several products or models where
the same compatible models are displayed in all listings.
than one listing for items that aren’t significantly different or don’t satisfy
a different buyer need. For example, one listing for a quantity of 10 test
probes and one listing for a quantity of 8 of the same test probes aren’t
significantly different. A listing of quantity 10 test probes, and
another listing for quantity 1000 however, are significantly different, and

create a listing that appears different.
