what is fvf



​Final value fee

I'll wait for the 75% off FVF or £1 max FVF before selling anything

Got the invite on one of my accounts, still not enough of an incentive for me to sell anything on the bay.

75% = ebay, any less = forget it

Very helpful if you gotta sell some stuff anyway.

Do you think that if there's 75% discount on fees you've got a load more competition so will either not sell it, or achieve a lower selling price therefore you've saved 75% of nothing/lower selling price.

Not in the case where you sell items which have very little competition at normal ebay prices

Good if you need to sell something now.

These offers are normally weekly, 25%, 50% the following week then 75% then back down to 25% etc.

I only really list anything if there's a double up voucher offer on the go - sell your item for £xx and eBay will give you the same amount in a voucher. It's worth the risk then, for me it is anyway. I don't know why they wont permanently reduce fvf's to a reasonable level, even 5% would go a long way with some former sellers but saying that you're still treading a fine line with stars, defects, fraudsters and percentages.

So can we expect for the 50% or 75% in coming weeks? If so awesome

Normally. Once I get the 75% offer and if I have nothing to sell at the time, I will make lots of listings and amend it when I have something to sell.

For example, I may title it simply "Nike Trainers" Price £1000 and "Details to follow. I will set it at 30 days which will give me the maximum length of time to find something to sell.

But that 75% would have a dead line rite even if you are not selling?

If you change to a different category it charges you £2.50 and I'm not sure whether they put you on the default fees also?
Maybe listing things that you know you generally sell would overcome this.

Great tip though I've used it for the 75% and still have 10 days or so left on some.

You've locked the 75% off fees and have 30 days to change it to something that you actually want to sell. You need to do the fake listings before the deadline.

Thanks for this info guys. Never knew this. Now I'll wait for this offer to come in for future selling.

Last year around this time they had 1p max fvf... could do with that now (_;)

Yes, I do it in all the categories that I know I will probably sell in to avoid the extra fee.

Great timing. I've had my 50% FVF listings expire so was waiting for something. 25% off better than nothing. Heat and Thanks from me.

Ebay started looking for this & charging you the full fee when you make a significant change to the listing

thanks op

Just got three free listings with no FVF.
No Listing Fee
No Final Value Fee
All features included
Free choice of listing format

Wow can't believe this is hot, maybe it benefits bigger sellers? I sell a few items a year and always wait for the 75% off / sell for £1 / sell for free / get a £xx voucher if you sell offers. These seem to be emailed regularly enough to sustain my infrequent selling anyway!

Why would it be cold? A heads up for people looking to sell at normal fees over the next few days. And as with every deal on here, you can always wait and hope that the price goes lower. Did you buy anyone presents before Christmas? or did you wait for the boxing day sales? and then give it to them.

I've not sold anything for ages so I guess that's why I NEVER get emails from then with discounts. Guess I'll stick to Gumtree...

I got the 25% off email but if I try and activate it I get the message that the promotions finished.

Huh?

Generally it is people like you who get the offers to encourage you back to selling. I have several eBay accounts and received the free FVF listings on an account I had not sold on for a few months. The 25% off offer was to an account I used more recently.

Pants deal. Holding on for their £1. Although the the deals just seem to be getting worse. Was £1 then 50% off now this.

Better than nothing. I'll cancel and relist my existing auctions to save a few quid. Cheers OP.

Nothing on any accounts I have access to, nor very good either. Voted cold.

Thank you for your input

I did bloody well jumping on the last two £1 FVF deals they had, great for more expensive items but will hold out for a higher percentage discount before I go and sell the many smaller items I've got to work through...

Just looked through some history on eBay and where I've changed the category I've been charged the full 10% whoops!
The ones where it's been similar/small change/no change I've kept the discounted rate.

I never change categories and I find my buy it now item still sells. I figured that most buyers just use the search facilty instead of clicking through the menus. When I buy something, I know that I always use the search to find the item I want quicker.

For example, I sold a "My friend Bing" toy in the Mobile phone category and a Grohe Shower Mixer in the Men trainers category.

Of course, I don't recommend doing this if you are listing in auction format.

If you change picture does it reset it also?

I used the 50% off one and sold a high value item but buyer accidently bought it and won't pay. Sadly that doesn't help me in any way as these offers are very hit and miss. Now I'm something more reasonable pops up again. Sucks.

Poor showing by eBay. Await 50/75% off or max fees £1.
