eBay is running a free-listing promotion for private (casual) sellers in the UK. The sale is by invitation only, and invited private sellers must actively opt in in order to receive the free listings.
“We know you love selling, so here’s up to 100 free listings just for you,” eBay told sellers. As usual, the eBay promotion is restricted – the invitation explains:
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.
An eBay seller who received the offer said, “Another free 100 for non business users. What is the point of passing £20 a month for a store that has 200 free listings?”
The promotion kicked off on Sunday and runs through June 30th. Only items listed on eBay.co.uk using the auction-style or fixed price format in an eligible category are included. Listings using the auction-style with Buy it now format will be charged only the listing upgrade fee, eBay explained. And, it said, “When items have been automatically relisted with the Quick Sell form, this won’t count towards your allocation of 100 free insertion fees during the promotion.”
All other fees apply, see eBay UK website for details and restrictions.
