eBay Australia holds Powerseller-only CLDs

No primary category set

eBay Australia are holding a Powerseller only cheap listing promotion next week. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will offer free insertion fees and BIN upgrades on auctions starting at 99c or less, provided that they are listed by Powersellers.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first promotion of this type eBay have run purely for Powersellers, and it will add an interesting slant to the famous “level playing field”, which says that every seller, huge business or hobbyist, will pay the same fees. It should at least limit the sheer number of listings made on the day, which frequently on CLDs threaten to completely overwhelm eBay sites. We’d be very interested to hear from Australian sellers how you’re viewing this one, so please leave us a comment.

Sadly for those who sell to Australia but live elsewhere, you must have a registered Australian address to qualify. All other ordinary eBay.com.au fees will apply and there are some other restrictions, so do read the small print before you list.

  1. Although many non-powersellers may not agree with this, but I think this is a great way for ebay to make a big impact on the “buying experience”. Many volume sellers are unhappy with fees, so this could potentially make them a good saving. It will also create a mass of low start listings for buyers to chase, and offer a lot more variety of products that are not usually seen on low start auctions.

    Quite a brave move by .AU, and it will be very interesting to see how it works out.
