eBay Runs Black Friday Promo for UK Sellers

eBay is running a promotion for private (casual) sellers in the UK. Not only is eBay giving sellers up to 100 free listings in eligible categories, but it’s also discounting commission fees if any of those items sell.

The sale is limited to eBay.co.uk registered private sellers who have been invited to participate and have actively opted in to the promotion. Participation is linked to the seller’s account and is not transferable, and sellers must be registered as a resident in the UK.

Both auction and fixed-price listings are open to the promotion – and sellers will pay 50% of the Final Value Fees if any of those items sell.

The sale kicked off on November 18th and runs through Monday, November 23rd.

The email invitation emphasized Black Friday, a US holiday-shopping day that has caught on in the UK: “The average home has 4,000 pounds worth of unwanted items, so why not make some money by selling your unwanted items on eBay? List in time for Black Friday – it’s the perfect opportunity to make some extra cash.”

Sellers should be aware of the following:

  • The promotion is valid for the first 100 listings only which go live during the promotion period (or were previously scheduled to go live during the promotion period) on eBay.co.uk using the auction-style, auction-style with Buy it now option, or fixed price formats, in an eligible category.
  • If your item does not sell the first time and if you relist it after the promotional period or if it is automatically relisted, standard final value fees will be charged according to the eBay fees policy when the relisted item sells.
  • If an item that is eligible for the promotion had previously closed without a successful sale and is re-listed manually during the promotion period, it will form a part of the 100 listings limit of the promotion. You will not receive a refund of your original insertion fee if the item sells.

All other fees apply, see eBay website for details and restrictions.
