Email This Story to a Friend

eBay is running a 1-day, 1-cent listing promotion on Monday, November 21. Sellers can list auctions for a 1-cent insertion fee - the promotion applies to both eBay Stores subscribers and sellers who do not have an eBay Stores subscription. Sellers whose accounts are below eBay's minimum U.S. seller performance standards are not eligible to participate.

eBay has been running a number of auction promotions in the past few months; this promotion is different in that it takes place on a Monday instead of a Tuesday.

Sellers who do not have an eBay Stores subscription are still eligible to list Auction-style listings for free - up to 50 listings per month. After 50 have been used, the 1-cent promotional rate will apply to all eligible listings. The promotion applies to listings in most categories on, as well as eBay Motors Parts & Accessories and eBay Canada.

eBay reminded sellers in its announcement that they could also save 20% on Final Value Fees on all transactions with a free expedited shipping service plus 1-day handling that end between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

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