eBay Entices First-Time Sellers with Fee-Free Promotion

eBay is running another promotion – this one lets eligible sellers list up to five auction or fixed-price listings and pay no insertion fees – and no final value fees. The promotion is targeted at first-time sellers, though some existing sellers also received the invitation.

“First-time or otherwise invited sellers who are able to activate the offer on the promotion landing page, and then create Qualifying Listings during the Promotion Listing Period, will be eligible for the Promotion,” eBay explained. “A first-time seller is defined as an eBay registered user who has never sold an item on eBay.com (under any user ID). Only U.S. or Canadian residents are eligible for this offer.”

The promotion kicked off on October 16, 2015 and runs through the 31st of October.

We were curious about the impact all these promotions – some open to all, but most by invitation only. Readers discussed the issue on this recent AuctionBytes Blog post.

As with all eBay promotions, all other fees apply. Sellers must activate the promotion, and it excludes items listed with 1-day or 3-day duration. In addition, only single quantity listings are eligible. See eBay website for details and restrictions.
