If you have checked your emails or logged into eBay today you may have noticed another spin on the zero insertion fees weekend promotion.
Upon checking my emails in the early hours of Saturday I noticed that the nice people at eBay had sent me an email with the subject line: “Your exclusive offer for being a great seller – just in time for Christmas”. There it is, it’s official, ebay class me as a “great seller”! I wonder if everyone’s invitation was worded this way?!
EBay are giving us private sellers an early Christmas gift in the form of 50 Free listings with Upto 5 optional upgrades per listing.
This is a little different to the usual offer and eBay have been mixing it up a bit lately.
What do you need to know?
Well first of all its invite only. So check your email, ebay messages, seller dashboard and logout and log back in on a desktop to see if you get a sign in message. If by this point you don’t have any messages, then I’m afraid you’ve not been selected.
Second of all this is opt in only, meaning you have to physically click a button to accept the promotion. I’m not really sure why eBay decided to do this, perhaps it’s to track active users or to reward those who are active already.
Third if you use good till cancelled and have items renewing this weekend you will want to accept this offer even if you don’t want to list anymore because these are included in the promotion.
Fourth you can choose between the following free upgrades:
… you won’t pay listing upgrade fees for up to 5 listing upgrades per listing. The following upgrades are free: Gallery Plus, add a Buy it now price, subtitle, listing designer and scheduler.
It won’t hurt to take advantage of them all but…
Sixth, remember whatever free Listing upgrades you choose this week, remember to remove them when it comes time to relist the item if it doesn’t sell otherwise you could end up paying more than you bargained for.
Seventh there are terms and conditions as always.
So get yourself listing and make some extra cash for this Christmas by selling the tat you don’t want that you got last Christmas!
