eBay UK August Bank Holiday Free Listings

This weekend it looks like eBay have been keeping quiet (again) about a pricing promotion for proivate sellers. Most notable is that this promo includes Monday too and not just Saturday and Sunday.

Accrding to this eBay page: “On Saturday 24 August 2013 until Monday 26 August 2013 (local UK time), eBay.co.uk registered Private Sellers (subject to the below mentioned seller restrictions) who list up to 100 listing(s) (with a starting price of £1 or more) in an eligible category using the Auction-style format on eBay.co.uk, will not pay an Insertion Fee per listing.

Feature fees will still apply. The number of listings eligible under this promotion is limited to a maximum of 100 listings for sellers without listing restrictions or less where seller restrictions apply.”

You can find all the details and the usual Ts&Cs and exclusions on this page.

Where I am today (Sussex) it has been tipping it down this morning so a few free listings on eBay may well be of real interest to some private sellers and it’s a good way to drum up a bit on interest on eBay in what is historically a quiet period of the year. That said, after yesterday’s massively disruptive SNAFU, I’m not sure that submitting the site to any more stress than usual is a particularly good idea.
