New eBay Feature: Volume Pricing

No primary category set

eBay Volume Pricing lgeBay have a new volume pricing discount for sellers to offer buyers. It enables sellers to give a discount based on buying a multiple quantity from the same listing.

This is something that sellers have long wanted – If (as eBay want) you offer free postage, giving a volume price enables you to discount the product price if a buyer wants multiple quantities from the same listing.

Currently we’ve only seen this on eBay.com and haven’t spotted where to set the volume discounts up.

eBay.com sellers already have one promotions tool not available to UK sellers – Codeless Coupons to engage new and returning buyers with semi-private deals. Codeless coupons generate a unique url that can be distributed through emails, social media, third-party sites, eBay storefront, etc. Offers are hidden from natural search and are only displayed to buyers who have clicked on the link.

Would you use Volume Pricing or Codeless Coupons if they were available on your account? Are these features you’d like to see come to the UK.

  2. Oh dear, I see another opportunity for the search results to be manipulated by some sellers like they do with MVL where they sell a “sample” for 99p to get to the top of the lowest price filter. 1000000+ volume for 1p or something? I hope they implement something to avoid this as they still allow these MVL with 99p trick to ruin the search at present and it’s sooooooo annoying!
