eBay free listing weekend: Mobile or not?
Rather late last night, I received an email from eBay headlined “No insertion fees when you list on your mobile“.
Now I should have learnt by now, always scour the Ts and Cs when it comes to eBay. The devil is in the detail. But through bleary eyes I didn’t divine that the free listing offer was also available if you list normally. I posted about it and went to bed. Sorry if I mislead anyone.
Had I waited up another hour or so, another email would have arrived titled: “No insertion fees this weekend“. This came through on another User ID I hold. THis one had no room for misinterpretation. This weekend has a fairly standard free listing promotion.
So, basically, eBay want you to list on your mobile and your tablet, but you don’t have to. And I think it’s fair to say that they are quite happy to bamboozle a few people (the dazed, the dim, the half asleep like me) to boost the numbers on mobile listings. Once again, the tail is wagging the dog.
