Email This Story to a Friend

eBay is running a promotion in which sellers may list up to 100 auctions for free - no matter the starting price. However, sellers who have an eBay Store subscription are excluded from participating in the promotion, which runs from June 29 through July 12, 2010.

Under eBay's regular fee schedule, sellers pay no Insertion Fees for their first 100 Auction-style listings - but only for auctions with a starting price of 99 cents or less (and no reserve price). During the promotion, the starting price is not limited to 99 cents.

All other fees apply, see website for details and restrictions.
