What is it?

Guys and gals, now please dont argue over this. Its either a good deal or not. No need to get personal. Just try to get along with each other.
#2
Sellers must list items with a starting (and reserve) price of below £15 to qualify for the promotion.


Another ebay cockup. You can't put a reserve under £50:giggle:

Sorry matey, cold as they STILL won't give a 10p listing day with BIN included.

I think this deal maybe more beneficial for someone who lists an item as the following:

Reserve price: £50.01 or above
Starting price: 99p

This would usually cost:
Insertion fee: £1.50
Gallery: £0.15
Reserve Price Listing: £1.00
Total: £2.65

so the insertion fee of £1.50 will now cost just 10p, a saving of £1.40
Total to list £1.25

maybe more experience ebayers can show this in a clearer image.

Reserves are a waste of time except on very expensive or rare items as people don't bother to bid. Just list it starting at the minimum you want to get for it.
#5
I emailed ebay this morning about this, I wanted them to confirm that you don't need to have a reserve on your listing, I'm still waiting for a reply.
I think this is another case of 'ebay extracting the urine'.

I agree on the reserve bit but if you list at what you want it rarely sells, unless it's on a BIN and the buyer makes a snap decision. I really don't see why ebay have this thing about excluding BIN's from their promotions of late. They still get the same fee value at the end of the day.

I found the recent half price listing day was better value as it included free gallery photo.
#8
Gosh, these get worse and worse don't they? In terms of the restrictions they put on them. Remember the good old days when 10p listing days meant BIN or Auction, any category, any starting price etc etc?
#9
Haven't seen a hotdeal from greedbay in years.

The £15 reserve condition stops me from listing what I wanted to list.
#10
I remember when ebay was free to list items on! Ive been using it since the start of 2000 when there was like 20 items listed in each product category. Man those were the days, you could make a killing buying stuff and selling it on a week later with a better picture.

Actually what you said above means you couldnt do this as you have to have a reserve price below £15 as per the original post, so you'd still get charged the full £2.65 for this example.

Don't you just love fleabay:giggle: Always getting it wrong. Maybe it was translated from the american text as I believe they allow low reserves over on .com.

Does anyone know how to get round the rip off PayPal charges. I have a Premium account and on a £24 purchase I paid £1.33 I think just for them to take the money into my account. Bearing in mind they must have a lot of money like a bank and make money like a bank does while you leave money with them without earning any interest, youd think it would be more reasonable.

Always worth posting though cos there's still plenty who lap these 'cheap' listing days up.

only way round the paypal charges is to not put this as a method of payment. use postal order as this doesn't need to clear like a personal cheque.
