eBay.com is promoting vinyl record sales with Vinyl Obsession Week

No primary category set

eBay.com, the US marketplace, is introducing Vinyl Obsession Week and offering exclusive and rare record bundles and deals on in-demand vinyls from a wide selection of artists and genres to drive awareness of its amazing selection of old records and promote vinyl record sales for merchants in general.

eBay says it is the go-to destination for music lovers and vinyl enthusiasts searching for new, rare and unique vinyl at a great price, and offers shoppers access to the widest selection of collectible vinyl records through trusted independent sellers and record stores around the country.

Vinyl is no longer just a trend of the past and its resurgence among today’s music lovers is undeniable. We are excited to collaborate with industry leaders, independent record stores, and leading music industry charities to bring exclusive vinyl bundles and special offerings as part of this inaugural limited time event.
– Michael Mosser, General Manager of Lifestyle, Media & Toys, eBay.com

To promote vinyl record sales exclusively this week, eBay has a limited-time vinyl coupon offering shoppers 10% off purchases valued at $50 or more, top-selling bundles provided by specialty record label Rhino Records and a free, three-month HiFi TIDAL subscription to those who purchase select vinyl records from eBay seller get_importCDs.

Apparently between 2007 and 2017, pop-pickers were on the hunt for classic vinyl albums including Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” Led Zeppelin’s “IV,” and The Beatles “Abbey Road” and all of the above consistently appeared in the top 10 best selling records on eBay for ten consecutive years. Not ‘arf.

You can find out more about the vinyl bundles eBay has put together in this post on the company corporate blog but there is a broad choice including The Doors and Ed Sheeran.

Is eBay gradually edging back to its roots and realising that by promoting the brilliant, bizarre and, gasp, pre-loved is where one of its strengths has always been? We do hope so.

  1. I am not quite sure what you all mean? If you sell honestly you can not get a 4% fee. Forget all that if you sell vintage or antique items you can not sell them on amazon. Etsy gets the most traffic of all vintage type ebay alternatives and i still sell 2 items a month as on ebay i sell 5-8. Now i sell old toys so i may make $100-$200 an item at least $50 so even at that it is only $300- $500 a week so please tell me where else you can sell vintage items other than ebay? I tried them all bonanza, ebid, ruby lane, ecrater, artfire etc. for a year i sold 1 item on bonanza. So please let me know? Thanks
