eBay give ISV for free in some categories

By Chris Dawson January 29, 2015 - 6:15 am

It’s unusual for eBay to announce a fee change outside their regular Seller Release announcements, but there’s just been a welcome fee reduction which could save sellers a fair amount of money.

Globe for visibility on eBay.com (and eBay.ca). That means if you’ve been paying the fee you won’t have to pay for visibility any more and if you’ve not been paying the fee they’ll give you international visibility for free!

eBay say that they’ll still charge a fee for the international site visibility listing upgrade for all other categories for sellers who would like their UK listings to be shown on eBay.com and eBay.ca.

Categories in which you’ll get free ISV for eBay.com and eBay.ca

    Just more pratting around from Ebay.

    We should all be getting visibility across Ebay worldwide for our fees.

    Sort out the international checkout problems, Ebay.

    Why has the basket vanished from overseas listings on .com ???

    Create the smooth global marketplace people expect from Ebay and maybe you’ll pull out of your downward tailspin.

      I fully endorse the above.

      The lack of a proper way for International Buyers to check out multiple item purchases has lost eBay and its sellers a great deal of business.

      Making buyers pay for items one-at-a-time has simply pissed them off.

      Hi Andy
      I have also noticed that there is no Basket for my items listed on .com
      This is a problem as the buyers in the USA have to pay for every item one by one and as a fair seller I refund the postage cost but dont get these fees back from Ebay.
      This problem seems to have been around for a while. Did it ever work for our UK items listed on .com?

    Same here!
    All categories except very obvious items like Large Furniture, Cookers, Beds & Ovens should be visible worldwide. If you ship it there it should be visible there.

    As usual eBay (with fingers in their ears) are years behind implementing the inevitable.

    There’s no excuse for not fixing the shopping cart. I shudder to think how much busiuness we’ve lost.

    eBay is still behaving like an old donkey with blinkers on chasing investors interests instead of their customers/sellers interests.

    Do you still have to select the upgrade or are listings shown automatically? Is this immediate?
    Thanks

      According to the announcement it is automatic, indeed the upgrade option even won’t be there.
