OK - so just to clarify.
He paid $5 for 5 items to run for 90 days.
If nothing sells, it is over in 90 days. He paid $5 for an ad that he could have paid $1 for.
If an item sells after 40 days, the remaining 4 items will remain for another 90 days?
If he had just placed the ad for 1 item, it would have only cost $1 instead of $5.
The logic seems a little strange to me. Do you understand my point here? I just want to make sure about this.
Realistically, if this doesn't extend the time for the number of items, it would never be worth it for a user to list multiple items, or, chances are, they will pay more for the ad. They could just list it 1 at a time and keep renewing as they sell.
I would think this would be an issue with everyone's classified ads. Am I really the only person to ever bring this up? (just curious)
