Ivy shan

To provide quality assortments onsite and to encourage you to make more sales, we are limiting the number of assortment you can upload by Net Order Created (orders that have been delivered with no return or cancellation).

  • 500 Active item limit: New sellers will have 500 active items until seller reaches threshold of 30 net items sold in the last 90 days .Sellers are allowed to sell in only one main category.
  • 1,500 Active item limit: Once the 500 active item limit is released, sellers will have 1,500 active item limit. Sellers are allowed to sell in only one main category. If L90D net orders are < 90, sellers can have max 1500 items.
  • 5,000Active item limit: Once the 1,500 active item limit is released (>= 90 Net orders L90D),sellers will have 5,000 active item limit and allowed to sell in only one main category



Max Number of Products 

Net order created L90D <30


30<=Net order created L90D<90


Net order created L90D>=90



We will calculate the number of Net Orders for the past 90 days to determine how many products you can list onsite. The limitation is on product level, so you are encouraged to create variation under the same product. You can create new product as long as the number of total product is within the limit. Otherwise, you will not be able to create new product.
