eBay is running a 7-day listing promotion for registered business sellers through January 17th. Invited sellers can create up to 50,000 listings using the fixed price format on eBay.co.uk – but they must actively opt in to the promotion.
Sellers who received the invitation were pleased, with one writing, “Good to see this return for business sellers as there was a raft of free listings offers for private sellers over the festive period.” Note that eBay UK did run a similar promotion in early December, but it too was by invitation only.
In fact, eBay uses the same landing page for various promotions such as this one – it’s able to do so by avoiding mentioning a specific date. “When is it? Valid until 7 days after receipt of the promotional offer.”
The invitation states: “Create up to 50,000 listing(s) (with a starting price of 0.99 pounds or more), during the promotion period, in an eligible category using the fixed price format on eBay.co.uk and you will not pay an insertion fee per listing (promotional rate) during the promotion period when you actively opt in to the promotion via the RSVP link shown in the marketing communication.”
All other fees apply, read your invitation carefully for details and restrictions.
