Another coupon promo today: 15% off

No primary category set

The 27th of September will see another coupon promotion. This time you can bag 15% off orders above $25, to a maximum saving of $100.

You can check out the full terms and conditions here but the gist is:

This Coupon is a 15% discount off a minimum purchase of $25 valid from 10:00 AM PT on September 27, 2018 until 6:00 PM PT on September 27, 2018. The Coupon discount is capped at a maximum value of $100. Discount applies to the purchase price (excluding shipping, handling, and taxes) of eligible items on eBay.​com, cafr.ebay.​ca and ebay.​ca. Coupon must be used within a single transaction (and can include multiple eligible items), while supplies last. Max one redemption per user.
– eBay

Sadly only eBay users registered on ebay.​com, ebay.​ca and cafr.ebay.​ca, with an address located in the United States, Canada, Latin America or the Caribbean are eligible for the coupon.

This is the latest in a slew of discounting events that have been seen on various eBay marketplaces, on both sides of the atlantic. And the timing is telling: we’re coming to the end of the third quarter. A sales event will give a boost to the often weak Q3 ecommerce sales volumes. It should also give the start of the typical strong fourth quarter a boost too.

  1. I find it rather curious that the service metrics have been delayed in the UK, but implemented in the US.

    I cannot believe the delay is down to anything monetary, has to generate way more than I also don’t believe that E-Bay corporate are worried about hurting the feelings of UK sellers.

    I am by no means a lawyer, so I could be miles off beam, but try googling this:

    ‘are penalties legal under UK law’

    The answer to that might have something to do with the delayed implementation.

  2. Nice video, but all it’s helped me to do is download my report and work out the following

    5% of my returns over the 3 month period were genuine (that’s 1 return guys)
    17% of items were never returned, yet it still counts?
    78% came back to us at our cost but were exactly as described, the buyer was reported for abusing the system and the item re-listed and re-sold.

    We sell electrical items. People don’t read the manual and open a return. It’s my fault obviously.

  3. Based on my experience of eBay todate, I don’t fancy signing up to something that gives them even more control over my business. Customer services are either terrible or mediocre, and their impartial 😉 judgements on cases would be laughable, if they weren’t so ridiculous and harmful.
