  1. ebay will be paying me soon

    this is just not real, there has to be a catch somewhere

  2. if ebay keep this up
    buyers will be sending ears with ransom notes in the post and leaving horse heads on the bed

  3. It’s a pretty clear message that eBay mean business when it comes to these DSRs.

    And it’s about improving the buyer experience. Simple as.

    I think it’s a pretty clever bit of work.

  4. add that to the free gallery and it should make a huge difference on the month.,

    Think I’ll invest in some more Easter eggs with the money I’ll save…

  5. Can I still assume I am eligible considering I list on .com?

    My Account Manager said I would, but that was a few weeks ago and things often change in Ebay land ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

  7. I just noticed that Chris ๐Ÿ™‚

    Shame, but there you go, my business is in the States, so have to list there.

    I was informed though that it would not be based on my location, so will have to clarify that.

    There was a thread on the PS forum (I can’t check at present ๐Ÿ˜ก ) where a Pink confirmed that PS discounts are applicable only for listings in the country where your account is registered. If you know any different I’d be delighted.

  9. eBay’s success is bound to your success. It can sound a little trite but credit to the UK management for standing by that statement of intent.

    My my, how the days have changed. Fantastic news I say!

  10. Where’s the catch?

    April 1st Invoices, and there my friends is your answer, it’s an April fools joke, eBay double discounting fees indeed, had you lot fooled. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Whirly, if we call you Jamie, will a good looking man suddenly appear?? ๐Ÿ™„

  12. Higher than 4.6. ๐Ÿ˜•

    So, 4.7 or higher?

    I feel like laying on the floor and being hit with a nail.

  13. Whirly, if we call you Jamie, will a good looking man suddenly appear?? ๐Ÿ™„

    Yes, just a lot taller ๐Ÿ˜†

  14. ah ok… I didnt think about 100’s, and knowing eBay, there are probably 1/1000’s or 1/10,000’s of units now.

  15. hi –

    discounts – great – thank you.

    so, lets hope ebay are fair and even handed when acting as judge and jury in cases where a seller requests neg’ fb/dsr are withdrawn for good reason.

    eg – the neg fb was used as a weapon/tool to extort, make unfair demands outside the law, terms and conditions etc…

    why? left published, it contributes to a sellers eligibility rating for discounts – the bigger the discount, the bigger the conflict of interest, when an ebay judgement costs a seller the discount (and ebay goes on to profit).

    more discounts? yes, please and thank you.

    a fair, well conceived system? yes please – and we’ll say thank you when it happens (honest).

    fingers crossed,

    justin time.

  16. Hi
    Just got of the phone with powerseller support
    I have been charged gallery fees for any mutliple relists,

    So using Turbolister or relisting in bulk from SYI form is not included in the free gallery promotion

    Speaking to PS support she told me that it is for individual items, and she said she wasnt even aware of it being on the terms and conditions,

    So if you relist 100’s or even 10’s of items in one go,
    You arent going to get the discount

    Seems a tad unfair to me

  17. Hi Suz,

    just checked my current balance as I use Turbolister for my listings. I haven’t been charged anything since 18th March when the promo came into force, except for SIL which aren’t included in the promotion. TL fee calculator shows the fee being charged, but it is showing as a promotional fee on the balance.

    I got worried for a moment….. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  18. p.s. Suz, are you listing multiple auctions (Dutch auctions) ? Because these are specifically excluded from the gallery promotion, only single auction items are included.

  19. Hiya

    Cheers for answering
    Nopsie – single auction items. I do not use lots or anything else – Will have another looksie

    But when relisting in bulk on SMP (as TL wasnt working) I got charged gallery on the multiples but not on the singles

    Off to look at invoice – why oh why is it always so complicated?
