Auctionquests permits Pre-sale listings only on a limited basis. The seller must guarantee that the item will be available for shipping within 21 days from the date of purchase (i.e., the day the listing ends or the date the item is purchased from a store front listing). The seller must also clearly indicate within the listing the fact that the item is a pre-sale item with a delivery date that indicates the item will be shipped by the 21st day from the end date of the listing. Additionally, this text must be the same size as the item description text, and not be hidden within the description.
Pre-sale listings are those that describe items for sale that are not in the control or possession of the seller at the time of the listing. These listings generally consist of items that are sold in advance of a delivery date to the public.
Sellers may not concurrently have more than 10 listings for identical items. If a seller chooses to list in more than one category, the seller must still adhere to the multiple listings limit of 10. Sellers may not use multiple User IDs to list more than 10 identical items.
