Discogs’ New Quantity Field Automatically Relists Multiple Copies in Your Seller Inventory

We’re excited to share a long-awaited addition to Discogs’ listing process for sellers. The new Quantity field on the listing page now allows you to list multiple copies of the same release at once rather than repeating the listing process for each item. For sellers with several copies of a release to sell — such as new releases — this optional field has the potential to save hours of inventory management and data entry, making selling at scale on Discogs far easier and more efficient.

How the Quantity Feature Works

You’ll find the new Quantity field on the listing page when you click Sell from a release page or the List Item For Sale tab. The number of copies you have for sale will appear in the new Quantity column in your Inventory. Quantity can be adjusted or added to any release in your Inventory; simply edit and add the amount you have for sale, then save.

Version, Grading, Description, and Price Should Be the Same

When listing a release at a quantity of two or more, all copies of the release should be the same version of the release with the same media and sleeve condition or grading. Each copy will be listed with the same description and price.

For example, if you’ve got five Near Mint copies of the UK pressing of The Killers’ Pressure Machine LP to sell, you’d just enter “5” in the Quantity field to list all five at once. If you have an additional copy, but it’s the European pressing or a limited-edition version, it needs to be listed as a separate item. This attention to detail is what keeps the Discogs Marketplace unique and ensures buyers get exactly what they come for!

Automated Listing Flow

No matter how many copies you list in the Quantity field of the release, only one copy of the item you’re selling will appear in the Discogs Marketplace at any given time. When that one copy sells, another copy will be added to the Marketplace automatically. This is to ensure buyers aren’t faced with multiple copies of the same item in the same condition, making “Add to Cart” the obvious choice.

Please note that Quantity is not yet available with Bulk Upload or through Discogs API. We’re looking at adding this functionality in the coming months.

Listing at Quantity is a frequently requested feature and is part of an ongoing effort to make selling on Discogs easier and more efficient for you. Stay tuned for more exciting features in development.
