nice one :p

Recent free listing days have been disappointing as they don't allow the use of listing tools such as Ebay's own turbolister.
#15
nice.

nebno... this is auction items only, it's what they always seem do I'm afraid. Still okay though. I did a couple of ink cartridges last time, started them at £7.50 and got £8 for them in the end.... if they had started at 99p.... they might only have been £5 for example.

Thanks for the heads up Holly

Bugs me that they only allow 100 listings per month on items 99p and under and still count them in the free listing weekend. I used to list well over 500 items per month and ebay made a lot more fees of me then they do now. I suspect that is one of the reasons for the increased number of free weekends.

With that many listings 500 you're classed as a business seller, so why should you get them for free :|

Deb8z is quite right but if by pure fluke you're not a business seller (_;) ...why not list them for £1 on the free weekends?

I agree. The cost isn't really about the listing fee. It's in the final value fee. Especially if you're listing something of high value.

Because if he/she lists in bulk like that they will get flagged up as a business seller anyway and will have to register as such on Ebay,their account will be limited until they change their status.

Free listing = more listings = lower selling prices
#26
Yea the final value fee's & paypal fee's really suck, greedy f**kers!!
#27
Anyone know if it will be free to list a car? Usually its around £25 I think

.Not a business seller - I am selling my comic collection and as most collectors know it can get addictive and have accrued over 4000 comics over the last twenty years - thus the reason selling 500 plus - wife has told me to make space :-)

All was well until ebay put a dent in that plan. I normally sell them for 39p – 79p and increasing them to £1 will deter quite a few collectors especially with the P&P. Because I sell in bulk I can sell them at a lower price because I know people will buy in multiples but only allowing me to sell 100 per month means I have to raise the price and therefore collectors lose out and ebay do not make any money out of me - just does not seem sense.

My rating on ebay is 99.7% positive with over 2000 feedbacks so I must be doing something right but they tend to punish everyone if a minority abuse the system. To be frank most of the issues with bulk item sellers arise from overseas transactions and those are the ones that ebay should be targeting. They also tend to favour the 'big boys’ now rather then the private sellers. I also use turbo Lister to list my comics in my own time as listing over 2000 in one day is time consuming, it really irritates me that I spend so much time using an Ebay tool and then they say - sorry not allowed. Ebay know there is very little choice out there and they know that most sellers will just grin and bear it - so after all that criticism I will just grin and bear it for this weekend 

eBay have lost the plot. I have been withthem for eight years now and have a postive feedback rating of 100% over 1600 transactions. A twit recently gave me a Neutral because I didnt refund him HIS postage for posting back a MP3 Player which didnt really have a fault but to whom I gave a goodwill money back offer thingy. I rang eBay and this foreign voice told me that nothing could be done to remove it. Yeah-I know ... they have rules blah, blah. But even tho this crap feedback was malicious-they really have got too big, greedy and impersonal to the detriment of real supporters like myself and now only 'look after' the buyers. THIS is why there's a mass exodus away from them now.... if any one has a suggestion who is next best to flog yer stuff thro ... lemme know. I have no loyalty to eBay .. their astronomical final value fees and PayPal ripoffs. Apart from that tho' ... I highly recommend them ....(cough)

You're still likely to get flagged up if you continue to list a great deal,collectors and 2nd hand clothes sellers with families have been known to list tons on the free listing weekends and Ebay deem them to be a business seller,it's very shaky ground,i'd go easy on how much you list.

I've seen loads of private sellers up have come unstuck when Ebay see fit to call them businesses because of the volume they sell,it's on the Ebay forums a lot.

Yes I have already had this discussion with Ebay and as I only list single items and not duplicates they realise I am not a business seller, I think it also helps that I list in the media section.

Also the annual turnover due to the low price does not really flag me as someone who is a business seller - but this is ebay and they have their own rules (and break them) - do not even start me on their feedback process and buyers who are stupid enough to put a claim in for non-delivery even though they have signed for the item but ebay even go with them sometimes! Grin and bear it.:(

I agree with the 100 limit though,they had to do something, too many people were listing and re-listing pages and pages of the same stuff over and over on the off chance it would sell.

everytime these threads turn up it's the same moans about final fees, yet ebay is cheaper than both playtrade and amazon to sell on.

But that argument would apply to even 1 item - everything listed is based on the off chance it would sell. It's like Asda only selling one or two items as opposed to offering a variety of choices and admittantly they do have nice offers (Ben & Jerry 2 for £3 ! ).

Limiting the number of listings is not the answer for buyers because a reduced market place with less choice means higher prices - I also buy and I like it when there are multiple items of the same product - I can then properly guage the item and not impulse buy and regret it. I think there should be limit on the overseas sellers (Hong Kong & China) as they cause the most issues in terms of warranties, returns, dodgy items, etc but they will only find another way of selling from a UK address. Or ebay should have sliding scale where the number listed is based on buyer reputation, years as a member and the number of feedbacks, etc. Anyway enough of my moans. I personally love the the free listing weekends/days as I can relist all those items "on the off chance it would sell" :-)

Okay, I want to ask.. I am not sure what I should I select for 'Duration', I fear that I will be charged for the days that are out of the free listing days. Could someone verify this for me asap?

Many Thanks.

The listing is free as long as you list the item before midnight tonight (Sunday). Does not matter how long or short the duration of the actual auction is
