eBay Gives Thousands of Free Auction Listings to Invited Sellers

Some lucky eBay sellers received an invitation to list up to 7,000 auction listings with no insertion fees. But one group of sellers received an invitation to list 1,000 listings per day for a maximum of 7,000 listings over 7 days, while the other group received an invitation to list up to 7,000 auction listings with no restrictions on how many they could list each day during the promotion.

The rest of the terms appeared to be identical. Only 5, 7, and 10-day listing durations are included – note that according to the terms, sellers will have to pay the extra (optional) upgrade fee for 10-day auction-style listings.

Sellers invited to participate will have received an email and/or a message in My eBay. The promotion is activated with the seller’s qualifying eBay user ID and is for invited sellers only and is not transferable.

Sellers who were invited to participate will automatically receive the promotional rate when they list items in the auction-style or auction-style with Buy It Now format through the Sell Your Item form, eBay Seller Tools, eBay Mobile applications, and most third-party tools.

Only sellers whose accounts meet eBay’s minimum seller performance standards are eligible. All existing selling limits as well as category and item limits apply and may exclude sellers from creating the maximum number of listings in the promotion.
