75% off final sale fees on 10 items. This can add up to quite a bit seeing eBay charge upto 10%

Ends midnight

I got email

Why is this cold? You hardly ever get any final value fee discounts.

Maybe coz it's only a select few

why only selected sellers it should be everyone because 10% is a lot of money if your item sells.

Selling on eBay is a big problem because of the fees.


I now give all my unwanted good stuff to my family and friends if they want it, local charities...or freecycle it
Has to be hassle free for me

-ve because invite only.

Absolutely. It's sometimes worth it as a buyer though because of the (very rare) instances when someone puts something up as a "Buy it now", or for used car parts. Otherwise Preloved and eBid are the places to go if you already have an idea about how much it's worth.

And you have to very dishonest to make money. I was interested in buying some streptocarpus and found 99pence jump to £5 for several items belonging to one seller! You can't make money if you are honest.

Ah the joys of marketing. What would be the point of ebay incentivising sellers that already sell? Answer: none. Targeted marketing campaigns such as these are generally aimed at promoting repeat business from sectors that have not been fully developed. I suspect the recipients of this marketing campaign will be ebay members who have not previously sold or who have only sold v little, in the hope that once the member has dipped his/her toe into selling it will develop into frequent swimming (queue the drowning replies oO )

Tried selling on eBay twice. Fees were very high and at auction end the buyers decide they don't want it and you have no come back even though you are supposedly bound by their agreement. Never bothering again. Free cycle, charity or helping friends family or church now
