eBay Free Listing Weekend 14th and 15th June 2014

Free Listing Weekend 14 and 15 June 2014

If you’re like me you may have been thinking that the listing promotions had stopped.  It seems that there has been a bit of a drought lately.  I remember 6 weeks in a row being invited to participate in free listings weekends, and then after the new ebay fees announcement and the 20 free listings “Good surprise” nothing.

I suppose the good folks at eBay have had a few things on their mind what with the hacking issue and trying to get everyone to change their passwords and all.  It seems that they have that under control enough to give all of us private sellers 100 free listings.  Woohoo!

Ebay Free Listing Weekend 14 15 June 2014

I logged into my account a little after midnight and found that I had 100 free listings for either auction style of fixed price.  I prefer these types of promotions because I almost exclusively list fixed price nowadays.

Have you logged in to see if you have been allocated the free listings?  If not log in and check, although I think as it is the first one in a while they will likely not exclude anyone.

As usual there are terms and conditions.

Create up to 100 listing(s) in an eligible category during the promotion period using the auction-style or fixed price format and you won’t pay an insertion fee for each listing during the promotion period.

Feature fees and final value fees will still apply. The number of listings eligible under this promotion may be less where seller restrictions apply.

If you are at all anything like me you will be listing whilst watching the football.  Oh how I love the world cup!

eBay free listings Easter weekend 18th to 21st April 2014

Late last night, or more accurately early this morning, I got an email from eBay telling me to “hop to it” because free listings were afoot all Easter weekend. I woke up this morning and actually thought I had dreamt the whole thing.

I checked my inbox and there the email was they are offering 100 free listings, auction or fixed price over the entire extended bank holiday weekend.

Offering the option of fixed price as well as traditional style auctions is becoming a trend this year with EBay dabbling with offering it a few times in recent months. I personally think that this is the type of free listings we can look forward to I the future once the fee changes come in next month and if this is the case perhaps the change will not be so bad.

As always there are terms and conditions. But here’s the gist:

Create up to 100 listing(s) with a starting price of £1 or more in an eligible category during the promotion period using the auction-style or fixed price format and you won’t pay an insertion fee for each listing during the promotion period.

So if you were planning on having a lazy bank holiday weekend, you may now want to consider a listing spree!

It’s unclear just yet if you have items listed good till cancelled and they are due renew this weekend if they will be part of the promotion, however the last time eBay did this that’s what happened.
