eBay launched Price Match Guarantee in the UK. The new feature doesn’t impact regular listings, instead, it applies to “deals” from a small number of exclusive merchants that are able to offer a large quantity of items at steep discounts with free shipping.
In the UK, Price Match Guarantee applies to 20,000 items, while in the US, it applies to 50,000 items from 900 sellers. The price matching applies to a specified list of rival retailers different for each country.
eBay UK’s announcement follows:
Today, eBay announced the launch of a Price Match Guarantee on more than 20,000 deals on its UK site.
With this new offering, eBay guarantees that prices for new items included in its Deals Programme will have the best price available online from a list of six major online retailers, or eBay will match the lower price of that competitor.
The offering will launch later this month, available on all eligible items in eBay’s UK Deals Programme.
How it will work
eBay Deals already represent some of the best prices available. If a shopper finds a competitor offering the same product for less, once verified, eBay will offer a coupon for the difference in price that can be used towards the purchase of the item.
Items eligible for the Price Match Guarantee in the UK must be:
New: One of the over 20,000 new items available in eBay’s deals programme in the UK
Identical and Available: Both items must be exactly the same and currently in stock
Competitors: Amazon.co.uk, Currys.co.uk, Johnlewis.com, Argos.co.uk, Tesco.com and Asda.com
FAQs and Terms are available on the eBay UK website.
