Ebay Selling questions

I wanted to ask here as I know many of you sell on Ebay.
First question is I am limited to 100 listings per month as I haven't sold in years. Can I list multiples of same and that not count or does it count?
Also trying to find a good price point. I will be doing a item that is selling for 99cents. I do not know how they are making money! Half tempted to buy one to see how they ship. The way I would ship would be 93cents according to USPS.com. My cost will be about 12cents per item. Plus fees. I used to sell them for $1.50 years ago when shipping was cheaper. There are more expensive ones that sell to.
Any ideas on how to do this? I don't think even listing $1.99 would be worth it with my listing limit but I do need to sell to get the limit lifted I suppose. I was hoping to do a bit more.

Re: Ebay Selling questions

I believe that the quantity counts towards your limit.

Are they charging shipping plus the .99? Or free shipping?

I don't really think I'd bother selling .99 items on eBay personally because I think you'd end up with about a .25 profit after fees and shipping. Have you thought about Craigslist?

Thank you. I was worried about that. They do 99 cents shipping included. If I had the Paypal I would buy one and see if I can tell how they mail it. I feel funny hitting my checking for 99 cents. This is not a craigslist type of item. I might do my other item that sells for more, just more work.
Do you know if there is a number of items I have to list in the 90 days and sell to get restriction lifted?
