Free eBay UK auction listings for private sellers this weekend

No primary category set

Just had an alert in here and there are free listings this weekends for private sellers using auctions.

Read the details here.

It’s for the 5th and 6th April. The blurb says: “Create up to 100 listing(s) with a starting price of £1 or more in an eligible category during the promotion period using the auction-style format and you won’t pay an insertion fee for each listing during the promotion period.

Feature fees and final value fees will still apply. The number of listings eligible under this promotion may be less where seller restrictions apply.”

  1. Another Free Listing Weekend. But has ebay been playing with its systems again. I tried to list a few new items. One long fight to get ebay to accept them. The biggest problem was in regard to the price. I would put in the price. It would come up on ebay as something usually totally different. So if I put in £19.00 it would come up as 1.00 or 9.00 or far more likely .00. Then just to make my day ebay then wiped everything I had put in and I had to start again.

    Before I tried to list some items I checked on a couple of items I was bidding on. I had been outbid on both. So I tried to up my bid. ebay would not accept my bids(and I am not talking about massive bids) As an example one item was less than £2 and I wanted to up the bid to about £3 but still ebay would not accept the bid. Eventually it finally did accept the bid. But as usual I wonder if ordinary buyers might have just given up or decided to come back later. In my case the item ends in only a few hours and I have to go out in a few minutes.

  2. Private seller future free listing weekends will now save £35 for 100 listings. Can’t see ebay being this generous so pondering over the ebay strategy behind this move and its impact on business sellers.

    Maybe they want private sellers to open shops and increase their predicable income stream?
