eBay would seem to want a bit of action going on during the August bank holiday weekend with this promotion. If you list on Thursday 15th August, 10 day listings that will end on bank holiday Sunday will be free for private sellers.

Needless to say, a sunny August bank holiday weekend will be the low point of the ecommerce year so it needs a bit of a boost.

Terms and conditions apply, including:

  • Valid only on 10-day listings that are scheduled to end 25 August 2013
  • Additional listing fees excluded
  • Open to private sellers only
  • Items listed using professional tools are excluded

    Why on earth do they STILL not allow Turbo Lister for these? It makes no sense when number of listings is limited to 100.

    As we had a Free Listing Weekend last weekend(even if it still does not appear in the News) So it is likely that many Private Sellers may have a problem finding 100 items either in Unsold or perhaps awaiting Listing if they took advantage of the 100 last weekend.

    Also many Private Sellers are likely to have other jobs so it may prove to be a bit of a failure. However to those who do take advantage I hope that they do give August Bank Holiday a major boost.

    After all August Bank Holiday may have wind, rain and driving rain and hundreds of items selling could bring a little cheer to many.

    Our experience is that the Sunday sales of a bank holiday are poor when compared to a Monday night sales of a bank holiday. Maybe ebay statistics also show this trend and they are trying to do something about it. Sales are driven by buyers and getting private sellers to log in and check their sales on the Sunday is a really good idea as they may also be tempted to spend their new found wealth. Like thier thinking, but they need to get buyers engaged more.

      I think that’s exactly what they are experimenting with here, getting more folk onto eBay on that parlous bank holiday sunday night. I’d say it all rests with the weather that day. :O)

    I’m probably looking at this the wrong way but it doesn’t seem to make much sense considering they had a free listing day the past weekend.

      Probably does make sense to ebay. But whatever if you qualify get listing. After all you may very well sell a great deal if the Bank Holiday has typical Bank Holiday weather.

    Just tried a relisting. It has come up at Nil Cost. So it could be we have yet another Unnannounced Free Listing Weekend. So if you qualify give it a try in case.

      Seconded; not only is it a free listing weekend, it appears to include Monday.
