22nd – 23rd June 2013: 100 free auction listings for private sellers

No primary category set

There’s a little pricing promo on eBay UK this weekend for private sellers: 100 free auction listings. Needless to say, there is a screed of Terms and Conditions.

Here’s what eBay say:

“On Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June 2013 (local UK time), eBay.co.uk registered Private Sellers (subject to the below mentioned seller restrictions) who list up to 100 listing(s) (with a starting price of £1 or more) in an eligible category using the Auction-style format on eBay.co.uk, will not pay an Insertion Fee per listing.”

  1. So now they’ll all be able to re list their unsold items from the ten day only zero insertion fee promotion of June 13th, when they end on Sunday. Deep joy.

  2. I have always been for and against ‘free listing’ days.

    The argument about whilst they are listing they are not buying is rubbish! If they list and then sell then they have the money to buy!
    And that is the pratical reality.

    For ‘free listing’ days:
    Selling gets money to buy – recycle the cash. eBay win win.

    Against ‘free listing’ days’:
    Unrealistic start prices and never selling items going around for the umpteenth time. Buyers see the same old items as newly listed time and time again. eBay lose lose.

    ‘Free listing’ has no value. I would much rather CLD for a penny or two a pop (CLD – remember them?). That way the ‘seller’ has to take at least a minimal risk.

    Go on eBay dare you to give it a go.

  3. Is it just me or are spammers getting meaner these days? In the old days they used to tell you how great the article was but now they directly insult the readers? I had one several months ago tell me my blog looked like it was made by a 3 year old and then post his link to his webdesign firm.
