So sell anything over £300 and you're winning

You mean £30.

Fees are normally around 5-10% on Ebay, so selling anything over £30-60 and you win.

"Unfortunately, this promotional offer is by invitation only."

Yeah sorry

good spot but I never use Ebay these days after the negative experiences I have had .. only use Gumtree and Preloved now and I always get good money for my items.

Been selling loads of stuff on local facebay recently, ok quite a few numptys but most are good, no messing about posting stuff etc and no fees, I think ebay need to rethink their pricing it's just too expensive those days.

thats pretty good, been meaning to put my old ipod on for ahes

For larger items local sales might be better it's true, but I sell perhaps 100 items or more every month, with around half going overseas - please tell me where else I can get worldwide coverage without paying a penny until I sell something ?
Several years ago before ebay became huge, there were lots of antique centres and similar places where you could sell items and the owners took a commission, rather like a traditional auction room - those fees were never less than 10%, so in that respect I think ebay is great value for money - the problem is more to do with hidden listings, other sorts of manipulation, not clamping down on rogue traders etc, which stops many smaller sellers from getting the number of sales per month they should do.

Then 20p and 1.5% take from paypal. Its a joke...

Yup. 10% off final sale price including postage plus another 3% from paypal. No wonder they are constantly trying to get me to sell stuff by promoting no insertion fees. No thanks ebay.

Check out Ebid no where near as popular as ebay but you might get a few sales on there, believe its only 3% commision.

thanks op

Looks like it, Ts&Cs say "Create up to 3 listing(s) on eBay.co.uk in the Electronics categories (Sound & Vision ( 293 ); Cameras & Photography ( 625 ); Video Games & Consoles ( 1249 ); Mobile Phones & Communication ( 15032 ); Computers/Tablets & Networking ( 58058 )), starting during the promotion period, using the auction-style or fixed price format, and pay a maximum of £3 in final value fees per listing if they sell."

I activated this offer but i have auctions that are in progress, will this offer apply to them auctions when they finish ?

I've had a couple of "deals" recently. The last one was 75% off which was actually quite good for shifting cheaper items. This deal is great for expensive stuff - and you get 8 days rather than 3 for the earlier offers I got.

Some Ebay users do brass me off. Knock myself out to package properly and send promptly and they can't be bothered to acknowledge receipt, never mind leave feedback.

No. "Only listings which start during the promotion period are eligible. "

Read the full Ts&Cs so you don't end up wasting your time.

It's higher than that, and it's important that people are aware:

mirror.co.uk/mon…698

eBay take 10% of sale price including postage. Paypal takes another 3.4%. So 13.4% of the final sale price is lost. This is a lot higher than it used to be.

Personally I have found myself selling more and more on Amazon Seller's Market, where the fees vary but generally you pay 12%.

eBay take 10% of sale price including postage.



Not sure when they started charging a fee on postage but that's a laugh. Postage is what you pay to, err, post it. (I know people used to take the micky overcharging for post but charging 10% of an amount you don't keep is daft.)

Unfortunately, this promotional offer is by invitation only.....Cold not for all

I have a graphics card that I want to sell, is it eligible for the £3 max final fee?

The part that bugs me most about it though is that if you pay for postage through PayPal, they do not discount it to 'reimburse' you for your paid fees on postage. You get a very small Royal Mail discount, but that is it. In my mind, if you sell something and take payment through PayPal, and then pay postage through PayPal for the same item, the discount on postage should be the fees you paid on receiving that money. Otherwise they are taking fees twice, once from you as a middleman who is probably not trying to make any money on postage, and once again from the courier.

Of course PayPal is a company and wants to milk as much money as they can from people, but at least if they did that then it would be more reasonable.

I sold a fairly expensive item and then got an email from Ebay telling me that they will automatically give me five stars if others don't leave feedback. They must surely do it for all the big companies.

why are people going into super lengthy discussions without even trying to use the offer? this offer is via invitation only and does not even work, so super cold from me, should be expired.

10% FVF on things has killed Ebay for me.

I just sold 20 copies of a Steelbook, once the FVF fee, paypal fee and postage comes out, its hardly worth bothering with.

Amazon is the king for this kind of dubious buyer feedback practice. It's so bad that the general rule of thumb is that even if items on Amazon have 4.5 Star rating, it may still be a shoddy, poor quality product that you should avoid at all costs. 4.5 average rating, far from being a good product, is more like a medium rating on Amazon. I've learnt that items with 5.0 Star rating average are, surprise surprise, generally worth buying.

When I was starting out in online journalism through ODesk I was approached multiple times to write bogus 5-star reviews for products (like weight loss pills, hair growth products) in exchange for a small payment. Amazon is riddled with this horrendous practice, so I hope eBay's seller rating isn't abused to the same extent.

It's perfectly reasonable for them to do this, I was going to sell a phone for about £250 on ebay in the next week (less now because of this offer) what would stop me from putting buy it now £1 plus £249 postage and then only giving ebay 10p?

There's a maximum you can charge for postage.

They might do it for companies/traders but not for me. There should be some system where you can prompt for feedback and then get positive if no response. I sent polite messages to buyers asking if items arrived and all OK etc. (and that after posting within 1 working day in most cases). Not a word from about 50% of them. Pig ignorance, apart from anything else.
