eBay UK June private seller promo hit by a glitch

There’s a promo on eBay Uk for private sellers that will be last for the duration of June. You can find out more on this page.

But here’s the gist: “Create your listing(s) in an eligible category during the promotion period using the auction-style or fixed price format and you won’t pay an insertion fee per listing (promotional rate) during the promotion period. The number of listings eligible under this promotion is limited to 100 listings per day or by your seller restrictions, whichever you reach first.”

It’s only a promo for private sellers although the terms are quite generous. However, snafu time, it isn’t working entirely as promised.

There’s been quite a bit of grumbling from sellers on the eBay Forums that the correct credits are not being applied and eBay has acknowledged that with this comment from a pink*: “Unfortunately, we are aware of an issue with this promotion and we’re working to resolve it as soon as possible. In the meantime, listings meeting the T&Cs that have been charged incorrectly will be reimbursed by credits.”

Let us know if you’ve experienced any serious problems.

*Do they even call eBay staff on the chat boards “pinks” anymore? I don’t know.
