In addition to its special promotion for business sellers, eBay UK is running a promotion for private sellers that kicked off on December 1st. Not only can invited sellers receive 100 free listings, they will also receive a 75% discount on their final value fees if and when those 100 items end with a sale.
The subject line of the email says “thanks for selling on eBay this year.” Inside, the email says, “You’ve been a great seller this year, so we’re rewarding you with 100 free listings and 75% off final value fees! Hurry, offer must end 8 December 2015.”
Here’s the crux of the promotion as explained on the terms page:
“Create up to 100 listing(s) on eBay.co.uk in an eligible category, starting during the promotion period, using the auction-style or fixed price format and receive a 75% discount on their final value fees if the items sell. Before your 100 listings start, you need to have actively opted in to the promotion via the RSVP link shown in the marketing communication. Also, you won’t pay an insertion fee for each of the 100 listings. Listing upgrade fees will still apply and will be charged according to the eBay fees policy.”
It’s 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. Sellers must be registered as a resident in the UK.
All other fees apply. eBay is now running variations of its promotions, so be sure to read your invitation carefully for details and restrictions.
