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.

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.

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.
