To make sure you get the price you want for your item, you can add a reserve price. A reserve price is the lowest price at which you are willing to sell your item. If you don't want to sell your item below a certain price, you can set a reserve price. The amount of your reserve price is not disclosed to your bidders, but they will see that your auction have a reserve price and whether or not the reserve has been met. If the bidder does not meet the price, you are not obligated to sell your item.

You will not be charged an insertion fee to list your item. You can list as many as you want.
