eBay UK Price Reduction for Business Sellers

By Chris Dawson July 11, 2019 - 6:00 am

From Thursday this week, there will be an eBay UK Price reduction on Final value fees and fee caps in Home, Furniture & DIY and Jewellery & Watches categories for UK business sellers. eBay are reducing Final value fees in the Home, Furniture & DIY categories and extending the fee cap for shop subscribers in Jewellery & Watches categories.

eBay are also offering a promotion on Health & Beauty items up to £10, where you can pay just 2% Final value fees until the end of September – more details here.

How do you get the eBay UK Price reduction?

You don’t have to make any changes, or apply to be included to get the eBay Price reduction for business sellers. Any sales for new, relisted or renewed listings from the 11th of July will benefit from this change, but you may wish to consider relisting or renewing existing listings from Thursday – especially high value listings – to gain immediate advantage. However it’s worth noting that in some of these categories eBay have just introduced new mandatory Item Specifics which will now need completing.
