How so I sell 2 of the same items on one listing? How to complete the transaction?

To sell two identical items to two different buyers, you must list in the fixed price format. There is no way to offer two items in auction format.
If you list in auction format, your auction will have one winner. If you have a duplicate item, you can send a Second Chance Offer to an underbidder.

So you have 2 Oster Pasta accessories, I see you onmnly have 1 listing, for 1 item, highest bidder will get this 1 item then you relist to sell the 2nd same item, OR!! if you get more than 1 bid on this item, at the end of this auction click on the bids number and see if any bidders are eligible for a second cjance offer if so make a second chance offer to that ebayer, it may be easier to just relist that 2nd same item.

List as a multiple item fixed price listing.
List as an auction for a single lot of both the items, in which case the winner wins both.
List as an auction for 1 item and then offer a Second Chance Offer to any underbidder (but none are obligated to accept, and users can even opt out of receiving those) and then do another auction if the SCO is declined.
I would not advise listing both as auctions at the same time, as you would be splitting your bidders.

You can't do what you want in an auction-style listing.
If the items are identical, create a basic fixed-price (BIN only) listing that states quantity of 2, one per lot. You will have to state a set price that you're willing to accept, as there's no bidding in this type of listing.
When two different buyers opt to purchase your items, you handle them as two separate sales... good luck!

If you list them as buy it now with a fixed price you can put both items on the same listing with an option to choose quantity. If you want to sell them auction style you will need two different listings.

You will have to list with "variations".............
If you are using BIN and the member can choose a quantity to buy, then you list this way.
You CANNOT do that. If two different people are buying them you MUST create TWO listings.............OR you are depriving EBAY of their fees and committing an "off ebay transaction"............even just one of those violations can get you booted off of ebay for good!
