If you are a regular follower of this blog you may know that I write a short post every time there is a new eBay free listings promotion. The reason I do this is because it isn’t always obvious when these promotions are. To eBay’s credit they do email you, send an ebay message and sometimes have a pop up when logging in, but not always.
I recently had a comment from Mrs Murray with a question:
In a nutshell Mrs Murray and no doubt countless others are finding it difficult to access and take advantage of the listing promotions lately. It used to be easy to take advantage as you were automatically opted in, you didn’t have to do anything other than list items but nowadays you need to opt in and it’s not always obvious where to do that!
There are a few ways of doing it, the easiest way to do it is to look for a message which ebay may have sent you. Either to your email inbox or to your ebay messages inbox. The subject will generally be something like “Accept the offer and get up to 100 free listings”. There will be some information about how the listing promotion works and generally a link to click which will opt you in to the promotion.
For whatever reason if this doesn’t work, or isn’t an option there are two more ways which I have used in the past to opt in.
Step 1: Log into ebay
Once you have logged in there may be a promotions screen which appears telling you of the promotion, if there is, brilliant, just click the picture and you will be opted into the promotion.
Step 2: Hover over My eBay to display the options
Step 3: Select Selling
From the drop down list select “Selling” to take you to the selling page, you might have to select “All Selling” from the next page.
Step 4: Scroll Down
Step 5: Keep scrolling
Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page.
Step 6: Get Offer
Click get offer and bobs your uncle, you have now accepted the offer and the promotion is live!
I hope this helps, if you have any other questions don’t hesitate to leave a comment below and thanks to Mrs Murray for the question!
