For a limited time, local selling is free for you

Adding a local collection option to your listing makes the listing free.

This is an invitation-only offer so unfortunately won't be for everyone as I have it on one account but not on my other one.

What’s the Catch?

Your unsold goldmine, of course. This one-time offer means it’s free to sell locally and you’ll skip any postage hassle. Just hit that magic ‘Local Collection’ button when you list*.

*Terms and conditions

1What is the promotion?

Create up to 20 listing(s) on eBay.co.uk in an eligible category, starting during the promotion period, using the auction-style or fixed price format, and pay no final value fees per listing if they sell.

Before your 20 listings start, you need to have actively opted in to the promotion via the RSVP link shown in the marketing communication.

You won’t pay an insertion fee for each of the 20 listings. Listing upgrade fees will still apply and will be charged according to the eBay fees policy.

The number of listings eligible under this promotion may be less where seller restrictions apply. Click here to learn more about selling limits.

2Where is it?

eBay.co.uk

3Who is eligible?

eBay.co.uk registered private sellers who have been invited to participate and have actively opted in to the promotion via the RSVP link shown in the marketing communication. Participation is linked to the seller’s account and is not transferable. Sellers must be registered as a resident in the UK.

4When is it?

From Wednesday 05 October 2016 00:00:01 until Monday 31 October 2016 23:59:59 local UK time.

Only listings which start during the promotion period are eligible. Please refer to “How do I get the promotional rate?” for more details.

5How do I get the promotional rate?

You must have actively opted in to the promotion via the RSVP link shown in the marketing communication.

The promotion is valid for the first 20 listings only which go live during the promotion period (or were previously scheduled to go live during the promotion period) on eBay.co.uk using the auction-style, auction-style with Buy it now option, or fixed price formats, in an eligible category. Listings using the auction-style with Buy it now option will be charged only the listing upgrade fee.

Only sellers whose accounts meet eBay’s minimum seller performance standards are eligible. Please sign in to My eBay and view your Seller Dashboard to verify whether your account is currently meeting the standards. The Seller dashboard is available to all sellers. The detailed rating section is available to sellers who've received 5 or more detailed seller ratings (DSRs). Find out more about eBay’s seller performance standards.

If you registered after 15 March 2011 or haven’t listed any items for a while, you may have a listing allowance of 10 items per month or of £650 per month, whichever is reached first. You may be able to increase this allowance by providing additional verification.

An eligible item previously scheduled to go live during the promotional period will qualify for the promotion only if you have opted in to the promotion before the listing starts.

If an item that is eligible for the promotion had previously closed without a successful sale and is re-listed during the promotion period, it will count towards the 20 listings limit of the promotion. You will not receive a refund of your original insertion fee if the item sells.

If an item qualifies for the promotion and when the item sells, the invoice will indicate the fee including the discount. Please note: if the item does not sell the first time and if you relist it after the promotional period or if it is automatically relisted during the promotional period, standard final value fees will be charged according to the eBay fees policy when the relisted item sells.

Only single quantity listings are eligible.

For items listed in 2 or more categories, only the insertion fee for the first category is included. Standard insertion fees will be charged for listing the same item for each additional category, according to the eBay fees policy.

Free listings in this promotion do not count towards your monthly 20 free listings.

6Restrictions & exclusions:

Business sellers and/or PowerSellers.

Sellers who have been invited to participate, but have not actively opted in to the promotion via the RSVP link shown in the marketing communication.

All items listed in the Cars, Motorcycles & Vehicles and Property categories. However, items listed in the Vehicle Parts & Accessories category are included.

Item listed in the Classified format.

Auction-style listings ended early.

Identical listings that don’t comply with our duplicate listings policy.

Any item listed that doesn’t comply with eBay’s listing policies or prohibited and restricted items policies.

Any item listed during the promotional period but scheduled to start after the promotional period.

Listings that are automatically relisted during the promotional period.

Listings that are listed during the promotional period but do not sell and are relisted outside of the promotional period.

Multi-quantity listings

Listing upgrade fees apply and will be charged according to the eBay fees policy.

PayPal and any other third-party fees still apply.

Final value fees apply for second chance offers.

7General terms

Any attempt to manipulate the promotion will lead to automatic exclusion from participation.

eBay reserves the right to suspend, change or cancel the promotion at any time, in the event of circumstances arising which, in eBay's opinion, make it necessary for it to do so. eBay reserves the right to add additional terms and conditions for certain parts of this promotion.

eBay also reserves the right to exclude users on the basis that their seller accounts have fallen below the minimum required seller performance standards. Sellers should confirm eligibility by checking their account status on My eBay.

The decision of eBay regarding any aspect of this promotion is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

I still don't quite understand what it is or the eligible categories.

Sell local? Does that mean no global shipping?

Means giving the option for local collection as a delivery option makes the listing free

You've got no protection when out of Ebay.

No paypal on pick up = no protection anyway.

How ? they send you a message asking to buy outside of Ebay or do you just send a cancellation afterwards?

If I am ever looking for something locally, I send them a message about picking up the item and paying outside of eBay to avoid fees. They just cancel the item like you said and everyone's a winner. Apart from eBay

Do you think it means collection at Argos? This doesn't make any sense if it's home collection as accepting Paypal with pick up is certainly a no go, who'd be crazy enough to do that! No proof of postage means no Ebay or paypal protection for the seller.

I'm sure the feeling is mutual

I believe Ebay own gumtree which is a place to list items for free mostly for locals too

Unfortunately, this promotional offer is by invitation only.
#17
The buyer also loses protection via pick up though

And in reality, if you live in the sticks whose going to want to save £4 postage for the hassle?

Looks an easy way to save a few ℅.

Maybe list them on eBay, you may get a couple of quid for them! :D
#21
i wonder if you need to click something as was previously said, if collected they can say item not delivered and claim paypal back, cash is a must
#22
cold. use gumtree or shpock for pickup - no fees.
#23
The fact that Ebay forced the acceptance of Paypal as a payment method onto sellers makes Paypal and local pick-up a dodgy prospect, as mentioned. Refund their Paypal and verbally make it cash on collection.
As for not wanting buyers to come to your home, arrange to meet elsewhere.

When listing the item do not give option of postage, select local collection only, then state in listing cash on collection only, seems pretty simple?

I honestly would rather pay fees and post items.

In the past we have sold bulky household items and the hassle you have is a joke,people click buy it now not realising it's cash on collection and they live 300 miles away,or you get loads of messages from people saying they will arrange a courier can I pack said item and send it,when you finally get a buyer and they send you a message asking when is it convenient to collect and you suggest a weekend for example they always seem to say they are busy when you're not or vice versa.

You wait in and they are late or a no show.

We had one buyer once who lived in London and was sending his Dad to collect the item as he lived locally and he was getting confused with the directions to get to our house so OH had to meet him elsewhere in the end.

I give everything big & bulky that I can't post to the charity shop now as it's not worth the hassle of the endless messages,it's too time consuming.

For the few pence eBay allow you to keep after they have taken their slice... you might as well give it all to charity ;)

F' eBay. Dishonest buyers who simply change their mind are actively encouraged by the PayPal protection scheme to lie and send stuff back for full refund and seller has to pay return postage!? And now buyers can opt to not pay for the item for days and weeks after receiving item!? 10% eBay fee. 3.5% PayPal fee.

Seriously, F' eBay. Use their other business Gumtree (although you have to put up with loads of weird messages from weird people - it's a lot like HUKD!) :)
#28
Where in the T&Cs does it say you have to select collection only? ... Isn't this saying if you sell stuff delivered all you'll have is your postage costs, sell locally and there'll be nothing at all??
