Item Package Quantity in Lighting

Item package quantity in Lighting

The Item Package Quantity (IPQ) provides customers with information on the number of identical units within an offer. Make sure you enter the correct IPQ in your listing data so your product will attach to the correct detail page.

Note: Most manufacturers create UPCs for products that are sold as a set (for example, 4 plates sold as 1 unit). However, some sellers break up these sets and sell the products as single units. To minimize detail page errors and customer confusion, it is important to always include the IPQ for products that could be sold either in a set or as single units.
