eBay Adds Fixed-Price Option to Free-Auction Promotion

Email This Story to a Friend

eBay is running a promotion through January 7, 2010, that lets non-Store subscribers run 100 listing per month with no insertion fee, no matter the starting price. And on Tuesday, it added another incentive - sellers can add a Buy It Now (BIN) price to those free listings without incurring a extra fee. Normally eBay charges between 5 cents and a quarter for adding a BIN option to an auction, depending on the starting price.

All other fees apply, see website for details and restrictions.
