eBay UK kicked off a rare promotion for business sellers on Cyber Monday – usually its promotions are restricted to private (non-business) sellers. However, the current promotion is by invitation only, and sellers must actively opt in in order to participate.
Invited sellers can list up to 50,000 listings in eligible categories using the fixed price format on eBay.co.uk and pay no insertion fee.
According to the terms: “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 RSVP link shown in the marketing communication. 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 runs through December 6th, obviously an effort to get fixed price listings up on the site and available to holiday shoppers.
Some of the restrictions include the following: “Fixed price 30-day listings that are relisted outside of the promotional period won’t be eligible for the discount. Any scheduled items will not qualify for the promotion. Good Til Cancelled listings that automatically renew during the promotional period won’t be eligible for the promotion.”
All other fees apply, and eBay often runs variations of its promotions – see your invitation for details and restrictions.
