Free Holiday Listing for eBay USA and Canada Sellers

eBay have announced that from today through till January 7 2011, sellers on  eBay Canada and eBay USA can list up to 100 auction-style listings per month without paying an insertion fee. As is always the case with free listing promotions, there are certain exclusions, and this one is not open to sellers who have an eBay store subscription. Sellers who have sold more than ten items must have minimum DSR’s of 4.5 or higher across all criteria to qualify.

Fixed price listings are excluded from the promotion, as are Classified Ads and some eBay Motors, Business and Industrial categories. For full details see the eBay announcement page.

As soon as we saw that this promotion was taking place, we checked to see if there is a similar promotion for eBay sellers in other countries, but unfortunately it looks like it’s just for USA and Canada at the moment. This seems very unfair, and it is to be hoped that a similar promotion will be soon be available to sellers across all eBay’s sites.

More Free Listing Days on eBay

This coming weekend (Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st March) there will be no insertion fees for private sellers on eBay UK and eBay Ireland on auction-style listings (with any starting price). This promotion applies to all categories apart from the usual exclusions (Cars, Motorcycles & Vehicles, Residential Property, Mobile Phones with Contract etc – see the terms and conditions on the relevant eBay site for full details).

Some sellers dislike free listing days because they feel that their online auctions get buried amongst all the junk that gets listed during these promotions, and maybe they do have a point.

However, I take advantage of the opportunity to Continue reading ‘More Free Listing Days on eBay’ »
