eBay Canada Encourages 'Re-Gifting' with New Promotion

Email This Story to a Friend

eBay Canada is calling December 26 - 30 "National Re-Gifting Week" and is encouraging consumers to sell unwanted gifts on eBay by giving them five free listings. eBay Canada provided some "re-gifting etiquette" as part of its public relations effort, including: don't re-gift the re-gifter; make a list (if you received a number of gifts that just aren’t your taste, make a note of a friend or family member who you know will love it); don’t keep it in the family; accept graciously; or donate it. And, of course, eBay makes a final recommendation: "sell it."
