List for a penny in eBay UK technology categories

By Chris Dawson July 1, 2008 - 2:39 pm

, eBay UK are reducing the insertion fees for Buy It Now items in technology categories to just a penny. Items listed in the Mobile and Home Phones (excluding the Mobile Phones with Contracts sub-category), Computing, Consumer Electronics, and Photography categories are eligible; multiple item listings are also included. The promotional rate is available to business sellers only. Other normal fees apply.

Thanks to the lovely Whirly for the heads-up.

    Oh what a joyous day for techie sellers 😀

    I’ll even forgive them for the typo that says “Only the basic eBay Insertion Fee will be 5 pence” when it should read “one pence” cos I’m so happy – and free gallery as well 😀

    Strange one this. No prior announcement, no mention on the General Annoucement Board.

    If they are going to run promotions like this they should at least give us say a week’s notice. This thing is already live!

    #9 It’s an odd one thats for sure.

    I am new to selling on eBay and just listed 760 products in my shop with 500 of those being under the technology section. I tried to move 25 items from the shop to the fixed price section thinking I would be refunded the fees for listing them products to the store.

    However I have been charged for both listing fees even though the 25 items are no longer in the eBay shop.

    Any idea if I can reclaim all of my shop listing fees if I move all the items to the fixed price section?

    No, Tahir, sorry, you won’t be able to reclaim the SIF fees, because the items *were* successfully listed in your shop.

  • 13 years ago

    Tahir – leave them in your shop, but if you have duplicates add new listings as BINs 🙂

    Thanks for the response. Well I decided to list everything as BIN as well and so its not too bad as I have the listings in BIN for 3 to 7 days and the eBay store for 30 days. Really enjoying your site so far as I did not realise there is so much potential in selling through different places. Keep up the good work.
