eBay France are which places more emphasis on final value fees and less on insertion fees. Similar to the tariffs introduced on eBay.com and eBay UK earlier this year, the French fee structure has one important difference: sellers can choose which set of fees they want to be charged. The trial runs from 15th April to 14th July: sign-ups for the first month are now closed, but sellers can still opt in for the later two months.
The new trial tariff slashes insertion fees by 50%, but increases FVFs on tranches up to €1000: there’s a full list of the new pricing after the cut. Sellers who sign up for the trial will be shown a comparison of the old fees versus the new ones. Anyone who finds out they’re not saving money will not be able to quit before the end of the month.
I’m pretty impressed with this decision to allow sellers to opt in to a trial and see what works for them. There doesn’t appear to be any word on what will happen at the end of the trial, but presumably if it’s a success, the trial pricing may be adopted permanently. The new fee structure does not apply to Motors or Media, which have their own fee structures, or to Boutique (Shops) listings.
Many thanks to for the heads up.
