About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

80% off Selling fees offer, opt in if eligible. Runs from 14/06 to 17/06.

Terms and conditions

Specific information about this PromotionWhat's it all about?Get 80% off variable percentage final value fees ("FVF") per listing in final value fees if the item sells and pay no insertion fee.

  • A fixed charge of 30p per order and other fees, including the regulatory operating fee and any International fees, still apply.
  • Promotion is valid for up to 100 listings on eBay. Pre-owned clothes will not count towards the 100 listings.
  • Listings must start during the promotional period.
  • Listings can be auction-style or fixed price format.
  • The promotion start and end dates are included in the email we send to invited sellers.
  • Items must sell within the first listing period.

Sounds good, where do I find the promotion and how do I sign up?

  • You can take part in the promotion on eBay.co.uk. Eligible sellers will receive an email with the RSVP link to the offer. You must opt in to the promotion by clicking on this link before any of your 100 listings start.

Anything else I need to know?

  • eBay charges an FVF when your item(s) sell(s). The FVF charged per order consists of: (i) a variable portion (“Variable Portion FVF”) which is calculated as a percentage of the Total Sale Amount; and (ii) a fixed portion (“Fixed Portion FVF”) for example 30p. The Total Sale Amount means the amount the buyer pays for an order, including the item price, postage, taxes and any other applicable fees.
  • The FVF Discount in this promotion applies to the Variable Portion FVF (net of any other discounts) in respect of the eligible items’ Total Sale Amounts. For example, if you would have been charged 12.80% on the Total Sales Amount, the 80% FVF discount will reduce this to 2.56%. The Fixed Portion FVF (e.g. 30p) will not be discounted. Therefore, the fixed charge of 30p per order will still apply.The regulatory operating fee will also still apply in full to the sale.
  • You won't pay an insertion fee for each of the 100 listings. Listing upgrade fees will still apply and will be charged according to the eBay fees policy.
  • You may also be subject to International fees.
  • The number of listings eligible under this promotion may be less where seller restrictions apply. Click here to learn more about selling allowances.

    What's the best method for making use of these offers? Do you all pre-emptively purchase cheaper items from other deals and then sell them for their normal price on eBay when these reduced-fee offers come up?
    BabiDealings's avatar
    From what I can tell, there are some members who are scalpers/resellers. Some openly admit to it, others hide it, and yes they buy up any and all of the stock of items that can be immediately sold for profit. So these eBay seller fee promotions allow them to squeeze every penny they can out of the sale.

    For the majority of members, we are addicts and sometimes/always buy crap we don’t need  
     and then need to clear out old (or even new) stuff. So again these eBay seller fee promotions are very welcome  
     However I normally accept the promotion with every intention to list items, and then leave it last minute and eventually forget altogether.

    Watch out guys - HMRC keeps an eye on us!
    Willy_Wonka's avatar
    Watch out for what?

    Unless you are buying stuff for the sole purpose of selling it AND making over £1000 profit from it in o year then who cares.

    The rules are only going to effect those using Ebay as a business.

    And just for clarification, profit is the difference between what you have paid for something & what you sell it for. So if you are selling 1000 items for less than you bought them for 5 years ago then you don't owe HMRC a penny. There is too much scaremongering going on. (edited)

    I have got 3 sets of retro speakers on eBay at present. Does anyone know of an easy way to re-list them with the promotion, without having to re-do the whole listing? (edited)
    bryanhaines399's avatar
    When you cancel the listing it asks if you want to relist so click that. Beware if you had offers set to no it will turn them on.

    Also worth noting, if you have listing which expire and relist during the promotion they will be excluded, you have to cancel those and relist.

    I usually check the number of listing available after listing an item to make sure it's against the promotion. (edited)

    can i set up draft sales today and post them on friday or will that not work for the deal
    joedesigns's avatar
    Yes of course, I do it regularly.
  8. Wishywashy's avatar
    Sorry if I’ve missed something, but do these promotions work for auctions of any duration or do they have to be a 7-day auction?
    dizzycap's avatar
    The promotion works for autions & BIN's of any length / duration providing that items are listed within the 4 day promotion window & times i.e. 14th - 00:00 until - 17th - 11.59:59

    Not had this work in years, always says sorry but invitation only.
    ziggycj's avatar
    I didn't either for a few years so stopped selling, even messaged on chat to see what was up but nothing. Now they made clothes free to sell I started again, sold something and that seems to have gotten me back in their system.

    Try selling some clothes and see if that helps.

  19. Umarr's avatar
    I only sell (especially my high-value items) whenever I see this promotion. Thanks OP!
  20. xenole's avatar
    Postage is always the issue for me.
    As soon as something I might list is over 2kg, it's around £6.50 for postage rather than half that if under 2kg.

    Never sure whether to sell an item for say £25 + £3 p&p or just list for £28 (if I'm aiming for £20-£21 after deductions).
    Not sure if one option appeals more?

    Really don't know how some people make a penny profit when a padded envelope and postage for say a blu-ray disc will set you back around £2 in the first place.

    I've tried putting the odd item on FB Marketplace and 99% of the time, zero interest or clicks (even if listed in more than one category)
    Louise_Nield's avatar
    I've looked and been interested immediately to buy, but never had a reply yet and I've been trying for a while, seemes there's something very wrong somewhere along the line, particularly once I got to reading your story just now! Think it's time to find out whats happening, x

    Regarding fb marketplace (edited)
  21. emptypocketz's avatar
    heat, accepted this is much earlier but am glad gives me time to get everything ready!
  22. lageryron's avatar
    Anyone not accepted just put your asking price up to match the 80% off fees and then add 10%
  23. GOODSTUFF's avatar
    70% link anyone?
    smudgemobile's avatar
    Surely that should've been the 1st post it's that time of the week I guess

    Just been posted (edited)

    Lucky I haven’t been accepted for over two years!
  26. xenole's avatar
    Accepted again.
    Hopefully this will work this week as eBay charged me the full 100% fees last week even though I had accepted the 80% offer.
    daveh2k5's avatar
    Remember once you have accepted the offer you then have too end and relist any items you want the promotion active on
  27. wilky67's avatar
    Accepted again thank you

    Rats - been on 80% for ages, then last one was back to 70%. Now, this one is not valid for 80%... going to wait a few days before clicking the 70%, in case something changes (doubt it though lol)
  36. LouisGibzen's avatar
    I’ve seen these type of deals for years and I have never been eligible.
    The_Fragrance_Index's avatar
    Have you sold anything on eBay?

    I was in your position a few months ago. Consistently excluded from both (70 & 80) fee discounts. It was soooo frustrating, especially as I had a few fragrances I wanted to move on.

    With one simple action I've qualified for the 80% fee discount 2 weeks out of the last three!

    I sold one item with full fees & found myself back in the pool of qualified accounts shortly after
  37. Louise_Nield's avatar
    Possibly make more from certain clients wouldnt like to think so but reading all the similar info people are having issues when looked at in full. Well it's not for me to surmise.
  38. GrumpyBob's avatar
    I got excited for a moment, there. When I clicked on the link I got the banner ad for this deal! But, then I clicked on "Activate" and ... no, "invitation only" (and you ain't invited to the party!)

    eBay say that invitees are chosen at random yet some people get this 80% off deal all the time and I never do! I've only ever had the 70% off deal.
  39. Firemountain's avatar
    Ok weirdly I'm not getting " this is invite only" yet always got this one.

    Last time the 70% one worked and 80% didn't...wonder why I've been relegated to the 70%
