5p to list with Gallery is a saving for everyone, but is obviously a bigger saving the more expensive your item. A 15p listing fee gives no saving at all if you’re listing something under Â£5.00 in value. It looks very much like eBay want to fill the site with higher ticket items; products with a price of Â£100.00 or more will benefit most from this next CLD.
It’ll be interesting to see if sellers select ten day listing periods – almost the de facto standard for CLDs. That would have auctions ending on the third Friday before Christmas: right in the middle of office party season! A seven, five or even three day listing period for those really hot items would be a much better bet.
With eBay really pushing to make sure their shelves are fully stocked for Christmas shoppers, we’re betting there’ll be a least one more CLD before Christmas too: make sure you keep an eye on our Cheap Listing Day calendar!
