eBay Urges Sellers to List with New Pre-Christmas Promotion

eBay is running a 6-day free-listing promotion to help bring inventory to its site during and after Christmas. The invitation-only promotion applies only to listings with 30-day or Good ‘Til Cancelled duration.

Invited sellers can list up to 1,000 fixed-price listings – eBay is also encouraging sellers to use the Best Offer feature “for an easy way to boost sales.” It even quotes a number, writing, “Increase your sales by more than 50%,” writing:

“Fixed price listings utilizing Best Offer show an increase in sales greater than 70% when compared to listings that do not utilize Best Offer. Sales are defined as total dollar value sold on ebay.com from May 1, 2015-September 30, 2015.”

The promotion kicked off on December 9th and runs through December 14th. Sellers must activate the promotion.

All other fees apply, see your invitation for details and restrictions.
