[Updated] eBay UK & Germany reduce FVFs for free shipping

No primary category set

Another push for free shipping today from eBays UK and Germany: until 30th June, there’s a 20% reduction in FVFs for items offering free shipping in clothing, DVDs and some technology categories. The offer applies to all listing formats except classifieds, but sellers will need to have an eBay Shop to qualify, and to be eBay.de registered to get the discounts on that site.

As usual there’s some small print, so please do read it for the relevant site before you list.

  1. Just ran a quick spreadsheet on how much we would save if we offered free shipping and got the FVF discount. Turns out we would be paying more in eBay fees as the FVF for the total would be much higher, as we are selling quite low value items. Same for our competitors. Remember you do not pay FVF on the shipping charged, so think twice before changing any prices, or better even, calculate twice.
