50% off eBay fees for energy saving categories

Research by eBay Ads shows energy efficient purchases have been front of mind for consumers as early as last July, with searches for items such as “heated blanket” and “loft insulation” rising 132% and 37% compared with July 2021. With ever larger utility bills, energy saving is a top trend for 2023.

As we head further into winter (and beyond), energy efficient purchasing trends will only continue to increase. To help support small businesses selling in these categories, eBay are offering 50% off variable final value fees (FVF) until 30 April 2023. This will apply to newly listed items in selected energy saving and alternative energy saving categories.

50% off fees Energy Saving Categories

All of the sub-categories within those listed below are the Eligible categories

  • Business, Office & Industrial > Industrial Tools > Generators
  • Home, Furniture & DIY > DIY Materials > Electrical Supplies > Alternative Energy Supplies
  • Business, Office & Industrial > Building Materials & Supplies > Insulation & Accessories
  • Home, Furniture & DIY > DIY Materials > Insulation

The Promotion will be automatically applied to all eligible, completed sales at checkout.  A fixed order level fee of 30p will still apply. Full T’s and Cs on eBay.

The same research by eBay Ads also reveals how Brits are looking to hunker down at home this winter, with 36% saying they’re planning to socialise at home more as a way to save money. But with this renewed focus on staying in over the winter months, consumers are also looking to refresh and make the most of their homes, for less.

This presents a prime opportunity for sellers specialising in value decor and furniture – or those that want to move into the space. Thanks to new bulky parcel services, you can now also boost your proposition with the option to offer buyers everything from the assembly of furniture, to the removal of old items and packaging.
