eBay is running a 3-day promotion for UK sellers, and as usual, this one is restricted to private (casual) sellers. The invitation-only promotion allows private sellers to list up to 100 auction or fixed-price listings and pay no insertion fee.
However, sellers must actively opt in to the promotion before the special rates apply.
According to the terms, “eBay.co.uk registered private sellers who have been invited to participate and have actively opted in to the promotion via the RSVP link shown in the marketing communication. Participation is linked to the seller’s account and is not transferable. Sellers must be registered as a resident in the UK.”
The promotion is valid until 3 days after receipt of the promotional offer. (In the case of one seller who forwarded us the promotion, it runs through February 24th.) Listings using the auction-style with Buy It Now format will be charged the BIN listing upgrade fee.
Other fine print: Free listings in the promotion do not count towards sellers’ monthly 20 free listings, and any eligible item previously scheduled to go live during the promotional period will qualify for the promotion if sellers opt in to the promotion before the listing starts.
All other fees apply, see eBay UK website for details and restrictions.
