eBay is running a 7-day promotion for business sellers in the UK – but unfortunately, it’s by invitation only. Sellers who are invited and activate the promotion can create up to 50,000 fixed-price listings and pay no insertion fee.
“This is more like it,” wrote a reader, referring to the fact that eBay UK regularly runs promotions for non-business (“private”) sellers, but very few that would apply to his business account.
eBay explained in its invitation email: “eBay.co.uk registered business sellers who have been invited to participate by email or by a message in My eBay Messages and actively opt in to the promotion via the Sign up now button in this email. Participation is linked to the invited seller’s account and is not transferable. To take part in this promotion, sellers must be registered as resident in the UK.”
The promotion excludes auctions, Good Till Canceled listings that automatically renew during the promotion, and fixed-price 30-day listings that are relisted outside of the promotional period
The promotion is valid “until 7 days after receipt of the promotional offer” – or in the case of our reader, through September 13, 2015.
All other fees apply, see eBay UK website for details and restrictions.
