eBay UK is running a promotion for private (casual) sellers, prompting one seller to question the fees he is paying to operate an eBay Store.
“What is the point of paying for a basic store (200 free listings) when you can get these free listings so regularly,” he asked. “Sometimes (with the free 20 they give everyone) you send up with 220 free listing anyway.”
The current promotion allows eBay.co.uk registered private sellers who have been invited to participate to list up to 100 auction or fixed-price listings and pay no insertion fees. (Listings using the auction-style with Buy it now format will incur the listing upgrade fee.)
Invited sellers must first activate the promotion before the promotional rates apply. Participation is linked to the seller’s account and is not transferable. Sellers must be registered as a resident in the UK.
The promotion kicked off on January 18 and runs through January 20, 2015. All other fees apply, see eBay UK website for details and restrictions.
