how do you add more than one of the same item to sell on the auction-style

I posted a item and under the description I mentioned I have (5) more just like it. A customer would like to purchase all 6 but I can't change the auction to a buy now there is no window to put how many they may want to buy. Do I have to let the time run out? or cancel the whole thing and repost it as a buy it now?

Just noticed that you have less then 12 hours on your listing - and that you also have 6 of the highball glasses.  So you can't revise.  You can either let the auction time run out or end it with no bids and then relist for your buyer as a buy it now.  I'm curious as to why you state in your auctions that you have 6 total.  Are you hoping to add them to the invoice if someone buys the one and they want the others also?  If so, that is against ebay policy.

I would revise the listing itself to say 6 Mikasa Water Goblets and change the starting bid to the price you agreed on with the buyer and then put the BIN at 10% higher.  Then when they bid, you can end the listing selling it to the highest bidder.  You'll have to adjust the shipping amount to cover 6 goblets - but your shipping for the one goblet is very high.  what in the world does it weigh?  I mail 2 lbs items all the time for around $8.
