Sell on social item quantity

New Community Member

Hello! I am setting up a sell on social item, but it doesn't have a place for me to input the quantity of the item. Is it possible to do that? Or do I need to make a new listing each time someone buys it? Also, if people want to purchase more than 1 in a transaction, how will that work?

Why hasn't this been fixed yet? I just had to refund a duplicate sale.
