eBay - 100 free listings per month up to 99p

14
Found 20th Jul 2013
Your first 100 single-quantity auction-style listings in a calendar month won’t be charged an insertion fee if:

- You are a private seller
- The item is listed in an eligible category
- Your starting price is between £0.01 and £0.99
- You are not a PowerSeller on any eBay site

If your listing is eligible for a £0.00 insertion fee, your insertion fee will appear as 'Free' in the listing form. If you're relisting an item, the relist is eligible for £0.00 insertion fees under the same guidelines as a new listing. All listings (including relisted and cancelled listings) count toward the 100 listings limit.

Only auction-style listings without reserve are eligible. All other fees, including listing upgrade fees (such as bold or listing in two categories) and final value fees, still apply. If you list items in a second category, this will be charged the standard fees for listing in a second category.

eBay Motors, Classfied ads, Property and Multiple-item Buy It Now listings have their own insertion fees.

Point to note:

They have now decided that if you end an auction early they MAY charge you a fee for doing so.

Just another way they are trying to screw over the sellers.

Also deters those from ending the auction based on the item not getting high enough bids. I think it is fair play given the amount of relists I have seen based on this.


Isn't the 100 up to 99p auction a normal thing anyway?

yes this is has always been free

How can Ebay say that you have to pay to keep something that belongs to you?

By the way, even if the item does sell the seller does not have to send the item. It is only the buyer once bid, who has committed to a contract and must complete the deal, the seller can refuse to sell the item.

If you receive any bids on your listing as they see it you have benefited from the site and got what you originally intended....a potential buyer therefore they require paying for the listing / advert / sale etc. If you don't get any bids fair enough no charge end the listing.

Not entirely true, as mentioned already they state that they MAY charge you. Thats includes auctions with no bids on them, the reason i am aware of this is because i had a car part for sale (PAS reservoir) i left the lid on mine off by accident and lost it. Went to take down my auction with no bids and thats when i found out about their new tactic.

I only pray that one day, maybe in the year 2052; ebay is no longer on this earth sucking its life force.

That announcement is on the USA ebay website. It's been posted before - I searched and I can't find the same announcement on the UK website.
