eBay told Store owners in Canada on Monday that it would be issuing its new coupons in Canadian currency rather than US dollars. The coupons are a new perk of operating an eBay Store after the marketplace raised subscription fees on May 1st as part of this year’s Spring Seller Update.
eBay Canada had announced that Canadian store subscribers would begin receiving coupons that could be redeemed against the cost of purchasing eBay-branded shipping supplies that would be denominated in US dollars.
But on Monday, it said, “Because the branded shipping supplies are available in Canadian dollars, we will be issuing coupons in Canadian dollars rather than in US dollars as originally announced.”
Basic Store owners will receive a $35 coupon (Canadian denomination) per coupon instead of a US$25 coupon. Likewise, Premium Store owners will receive a C$70 coupon/quarter, and Anchor Store owners will receive a C$105 coupon/quarter.
“Coupons will be issued by email to qualifying Canadian subscribers no later than May 31st 2016,” the company announced. The full announcement can be found on the eBay Canada website.
