When is it?
Thursday 30th October 2008 00:00:01 BST until Sunday 9th November 2008 23:59:59 BST (promotional period).

What is it?
From Thursday 30th October 2008 to Sunday 9th November 2008 (local UK time), selected Private Sellers who list item(s) in an eligible category using the Auction-style format on eBay.co.uk, will pay a reduced Insertion Fee of 5 pence (£0.05) per listing.
Please refer to "What's Excluded?" for more details.

What's included?

Items which are listed using the Auction-style format with a Reserve Price are included in the promotion.
Offer is only open to Private Sellers, by invitation
Any item previously scheduled to go live between Thursday 30th October 2008 and Sunday 9th November 2008 will qualify for the promotion.
If sellers re-list an item between Saturday 30th October 2008 and 9th November 2008 that had previously closed without a successful sale, the re-listed item will qualify for the promotion.
If the re-listed item sells and is eligible under the eBay re-list policy, eBay will refund the Insertion Fee at the Promotional Insertion Fee price of 5 pence (£0.05).
Items listed in the "Parts & Accessories" sub-category of the Cars, Parts & Vehicles Category are included.

Further information

If the item is listed in 2 categories, the Insertion Fee will be 5 pence (£0.05) times 2 i.e. 10 pence (£0.10).
If the item qualifies for the promotion, the "Sell Your Item" form will indicate to the seller that they have been charged the Insertion Fee of 5 pence (£0.05).
For sellers listing with any tool other than the latest version of the Sell Your Item form (SYI 3.0) the Promotional Insertion Fee will not be shown during the listing process. Instead the discount will be reflected in the "View Account Status" section in My eBay, as well as in your next invoice.

I'm not sure I'd go that far.

You definitely have to take the final value fees into account whenever you're selling things, but the things you're selling get far more exposure on ebay, than they do anywhere else, and as such, are likely to sell for more money than most other places you could try.

I'm fairly fickle with things I buy, and ebay gives you the opportunity to sell stuff fairly easily, so you can buy other stuff.

Having said that, I've probably spent a great deal on ebay fees over the years!!! :oops:

I'm wondering if they will ever have a worthy competitor.

Ebay a Sellers nightmare, never again.

If you are not left any feedback then PayPal payment will not be given to you for 21 days.

Its not only final valuation fees that ebay now fleece you of. You have to make sure that your DSR's are up to standard if not your listings get down graded, which has a negative affect on your listings status in the search engines and ultimately in the price you receive. This is simply because of selling heavy and expensive items, you have to post using Special Delivery to ensure it's insured which is costly - people don't like paying lots for P&P and therefore score you poorly.

I sell on ebay and have for years, it is getting to a point where its almost not worth the hassle.

Over £24 in charges (Ebay and Paypal) for selling an item woth approx £260

I wish there was a competitor who could give them a run for thier money but unfortunately it seems that ebay are just too big now.

Do you mean for the item you sold?
I got money ok (7 days) for something I sold and feedback hadn't been left for it.
#13
There was once some talk of Google entering the market, anyone know what happened to that?
#14
Ebay and Paypal are rip-offs! The charges are extortionate! VERY COLD!
#15

Yes, I sold something for £220 2 weeks ago and due to eBays new system they will not release the money to me until either I recieve positive feedback or 21 days have passed.

The seller used "Buy It Now" and got the item 24 hours later by next day delivery and because he has not left me any feedback I have no money yet.

I have emailed the buyer a couple of times now and he does not reply to any emails, Ebay are not bothered as they get paid anyway.

Will never use eBay to sell anything again, will just stick an advert in the local paper and save of fees.

Gosh that is bad,i never knew Ebay started this up,its bad enough waiting the normal 7 days for the payment to arrive in my bank and paying postage out my pocket before getting paid,now you have to wait for good feedback,looks like i will start to use Ebid auctions again.

It's very easy to avoid this. It happened to me once but once I got the 20 DSRs they wanted it hasn't happened again. And I've since sold items worth £200+ without any problems.

As much as I hate ebay and paypal, these measures get my vote as they do seem to be genuinely desgined to tackle fraud etc...

There's also a very useful tool which will let you know exactly what you'll be paying if you were to list somethig:
