The worst eBay offer I've seen.


Slightly melodramatic don't you think. If you have something over £50 to sell then this offer saves you money.

Wait for the £1 max final fee or the 75% off final fee then make lots of fake 30day listings to reserve for future use.

Could you explain further ?
I thought you couldn't revise listings (adding new photos for example or changing title ) after posting ?

Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure about the 'making lots of fake listings bit'; but you certainly can revise the listing and add new photos after actually posting the item. There are restrictions applied once the item has received a bid on it though!

If the offer is only for 2 days than do you need to sell the item in 2 days as well? Or if you list the item within 2 days than you have 30 days duration?

I thought this was a good deal having a few 100+ items to sell. Voted hot.

It's £5 per listing not for all combined listings so unless the 100+ items you have to sell are above £50 its not that good. Better off waiting for 75% off etc

Bit like the time I bought the Death Star from eBay from a Mr D.Vader. Advert said light cosmetic damage but when it arrived it was in pieces with lots of smoke damage.

Firstly you must sign up to the promotion, click on my eBay, all selling, and scroll to the bottom, click the button alongside the promotion.
You then have until the 2nd march to list items on this promotion , the longest would be a buy now 30 days, if the item sells with this 30 days then you would pay a maximum £5 in final value fees, if you were to list an item under regular terms you would pay 10% fees

Have to agree for most items this is useless but I actually have 2 items with buy it now's of £150 and £125 to list so this £5 max will save me £10 and £7.50 respectively...I know I could wait for future offers but want the cash now!

I have a couple of high value items to sell, so this still works well for me :)

sure you can - you can change everything except the category you're selling in

if you change the category, you get dumped back to 10% fee

I find that if you put in (say) a dummy listing of a bit of laptop RAM @ £500 - nobody is going to buy it - then keep the category but change the description to the item you're actually selling 10 days later (say) a pair of shoes, then buyers still find it easily enough & you keep your max £1 final value fee etc - so the category doesn't matter much in any case if your title is clear enough

At first i thought it was max £5 for 100+ listings no good for me this time around 75% or 50% would help me.

So everything over £50 free but they still take 10% of the postage.

Yes looks like the postage is still 10% so this really is the worst so far as with the % off offers the postage was discounted as well.
#22
I do hope there is a test case about the 10% postal fee charge. I simply do not consider it right. I really do question the legality of it. It is not as if they are the payment processing company or the courier (to give examples).

Totally agree, here a site that shows you the right price to charge for postage so not to lose any of your Final Value income http://footballuncut.co.uk/combined-postage/ certainly opens your eyes.

I never change the category in a fake listing in case I get charge 10%. However, in the other thread "2minutenoodles" said you can in post #81 & #83.

that's just a plain stupid site that basically says increase your postage fees proportionately to cover the Ebay & PayPal fees

you can't do that without your potential buyers thinking postage looks a bit steep so Iwon't bid/ won't bid as much

This has been discussed and argued over for months, even years - do you remember the days when items were listed at 10p start with £7.99 postage for example, to avoid paying fees ? Those are the 'clever people' who should be blamed, the ones who tried to get around the rules and messed it up for everyone else.

Can't you include the postage in your price and make your listing Free P&P. Buyers normally sort "Lowest price + P&P" anyway.

Why do you think so many sellers now list stuff ''freepost'' ? Postage is never free, so it avoids any problems or negative feedback because of high postage costs, as the buyer simply sees the overall total price they pay.
The only problem with freepost is when business sellers list lower value items and someone buys several - they won't know in advance how much discount they'll get for the postage. For example 99p freepost items, someone buys 10, so instead of paying £9.90 they might expect to pay around a fiver, if they get a discount of 55p on 9 items which go ordinary letter post................. the seller however might only be paying 25p for postage and so will only give a discount of £2.25 with total price £7.65 (potential for angry buyer and negative feedback).
The way around that is for the seller to list items at 99p plus 60p postage, so they will probably end up with more customers, as people know they'll usually only pay one postage cost.
As people will make a buying decision very often based on price differences of a few pence, it all makes online selling a bit of a minefield as a business.

this is obviously not as good as the £1 max but it's close. I've got something to list for £250 - why would I not want to save around £20? or I can hang around waiting for the next £1 offer to save a whole 4quid extra - HOT from me

Read a section called 'terms and conditions'.....number 4....
Only listings which start during the promotion period are eligible. Please refer to “How do I get the promotional rate?” for more details.

It worries me when there are people every single time a promo gets posted on here, who ask the same basic questions like this one, or ''does my item have to sell within the promo period?'' - are they going to somehow make a mess of selling their item, possibly annoy a buyer for example, and then that buyer could easily stop buying on ebay because of bad experiences which are down to people not following the rules or not understanding even the simplest of them ?

Fact is if you list on auction and sell an item under the actual postage cost you will lose money, it doesn't take into account fees on FV. So not so stupid and doesn't add that much, and as long as you explain in your listing that eBay take 10% of their payment meant for postage it puts the focus on them and not you. Sure you may not get as many bids from people looking to buy and resell your items but with a lot of things on ebay it's swings and roundabouts. I would rather be honest with people and cover my risk of loss. It's never affected my sales and I run at 30% sold to listing.

Lets face it ebay is an odd beast with even odder members. All those members would pay £5 for a concert ticket to be delivered but the same might also ask an ebay seller for 10p refund if an envelope shows postage was that much under what they paid the seller. It's a balancing act but I don't use ebay unless I have too, I would never use it as a business never in a million years unless I sold only a few distinct items I was making a massive markup on. And not really because the cost but because the time & energy needed before and after the sale. Only this week I had one contact me to say the were put off bidding by my postage £1.75 - Actual RM cost £1.54 and the annoying this is the person knew that and was moaning about pennies. I've had a £400 item returned with the reason it was packed in the wrong type of plastic bag - I kid you not. Some of these people are a nightmare to deal with and even worse because they use the feedback feature against anyone.
