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.
They are also doing one of their free fixed price listing fees for invited business sellers from today until Friday (terms and conditions apply)
But the invitation emails are only now arriving. (Monday afternoon)
