Free auction listings for private sellers this weekend

By Chris Dawson March 18, 2010 - 10:42 am

If you’re a private seller you can list for free on eBay UK this weekend. For both Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st March 2010 insertion fees will be waived for auction style listings regardless of the start price.

Business Sellers and PowerSellers are specifically excluded from the promotion, as are a couple of categories including parts of the motors, property and mobile phones categories.

If you need to have a clear out get your items ready to list, if you’re a business be prepared for a lot of private seller items to be on the site for the next 10 days.

    Also stand by for lots of new ebay forum posts ‘ebay wants me to register as a business, I am not, I only sell a few things’ LOL

    Free listings days seems a good way (for ebay) to weed out these ‘private sellers’ 😛

    Eddie – that may well be true. I don’t sell on eBay, but because I occasionally buy for my business eBay insisted that I register my account as a business account. The result is that now I never sell on eBay, & the knock on from that is that I buy a lot less too.

    I’m sure I won’t be the only seller thinking Oh FFS not again, but I’ll say it anyway. 😆
