eBay have updated their User Agreement to reflect the Good til’ cancelled GTC change for fixed price listing renewals coming in on the 1st of July.
When eBay ended the availability of short duration listings (1, 3, 5, 7, 10 and 30 days) and moved to Good til’ cancelled format only, a number of sellers complained that they could get double billed in a month. In particular if you listed your entire free allowance on the 1st of a month they would renew on the 31st and you’d be billed for the second set of listings. To avoid double billing (or billing when sellers stick within their free shop allowance) eBay are changing to a monthly billing cycle for fixed price listings as of the 1st of July.
Starting from 1 July 2019, eBay will migrate all existing Good ‘Til Cancelled listings to the new schedule meaning that no seller will ever be double billed Good ‘Til Cancelled Listings fees in a month from that date on.
- If the initial listing start date was on the 1st to 28th of a month, it will now always renew on the same day.
- If the initial listing start date was the 29th, 30th or 31st of a month, the exact duration will be adjusted in shorter months, but move back to the original day in all longer months.

“From 1 July 2019, your fixed-price listings will renew automatically once per calendar month until the quantities sell out or until you cancel the listing. The exact day of the month that the renewal takes place depends on the initial listing start date”
