Can I sell non exclusive publishing rights?

No. There's something in the TOS about rights passing to the buyer. 

From a practical stand-point, however, selling non-exclusive rights would be a logistical nightmare for publishing. KDP requires ebook exclusivity, for example. If the buyer wanted to post the story there for sale and you put it on your blog, for example, it would break Amazon's TOS. 

I'm not sure what the PLR short story market is like. PLR articles/blog posts are rather a thing of the past. I really can't imagine too many people would want to be interested in reprints with no limit to other sales. What benefit would the buyer get from paying for a story available for free elsewhere?
