Is it wise to run single item listings as Good Til Cancelled in order to not to have to keep rerunning the listings? If you are pretty sure they will sell within 2 to 5 months? Thanks a Million, Lisa

424designs has been lucky. If you list at 99c you can very easily wind up selling for 99c.
I prefer to list items for 30 days and manually re-list them when I want to. If you let your expired listings just sit in your unsold file for a couple of weeks and then re-list them, they look like new listings and I think maybe get more interest.
If you list good til cancelled, you lose control over them. You can't just edit the listing and change the expiration; you have to end the listing to get rid of the "good til cancelled"

When I was running auctions, my fees would be in the $800 range.
With a store, I list all items fixed price-GTC. At the end of 60 or 90 days, I will END the listing and then start again, so it shows up as newly listed. Now my fees are in the $300 range.

That's up to you. I don't see any reason why it would be a bad idea.
Depending on the item and it's value, you might consider auctions. They tend to sell items much faster than "buy it now".
I generally post all items on auction with a starting bid of 99 cents with no reserve, and nearly everything sells at a good price very quickly.
Hope this helps!
