eBay is running a new seller promotion after cancelling a different one this week. It’s uncertain if eBay sent the new promo to the same sellers as the cancelled one.
The new promo incentivizes sellers to list very high-value items in certain categories. It runs from March 15 through March 29, 2018, and sellers must activate the promotion.
Invited sellers who activate the promotion receive 40% off final value fees – but only on sales of $250 or more. Specifically eBay outlined in its terms:
“Invited sellers (“Sellers”) who activate the offer and then list up to 1,000 Qualifying Item(s)* with a sale price of $250 or more in the fixed price, auction-style, or auction-style with Buy It Now format during the Promotion Period, pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein, will receive a 40% discount on final value fees (“Promotional Rate”) on any Qualifying* Item that is listed during the Promotion Period (the “Promotion”).”
But beware: the promotion is also restricted to certain categories, including: Art & Collectibles; Pottery & Glass; Business & Industrial; Home & Garden; Handbags & Bags; Jewelry & Watches; Toys; Tickets; and Books. And note that the promotion is restricted to certain subcategories within those listed. For example, only Antiquarian & Collectible books are eligibile in the Books category. Be sure to read the full terms for details and restrictions before activating.
The previously cancelled promotion had far fewer restrictions – you can learn more about it on the EcommerceBytes Blog.
