22nd August: make a note of it. That's the day when Insertion Fees will be half price - so selling on eBay will be cheaper than ever. The more items you list, the more you'll save. It's for one day only, so hurry hurry. Or, should we say, chop chop.

It's open to anyone.

Voted hot. As much to counteract the usual drongo early bird cold voters as anything else, although it is a good deal.

voted hot then

Tip:

List your items for 10 days and you should get a better price with a week end finishing date

And always try to get them to finish in the evening.

So on a 99p start item we save 7p.
Way to go Ebay, what ever happened to the free listing days where you could add BIN items?
That was actually a saving worth having.

soz voted cold as i waste too much money as the buyer nevers pays, just an attraction for people to sell more.

really hot

It only takes a few quid's savings to get you to empty your attic? No wonder fee-bay doesn't need to give very much of a discount anymore.

ebay are rip offs these days but its the only way you get something sold for its value as there are millions on ebay looking for an item.

Sold for its value? Funniest thing i've read this week:thumbsup:

Most items on ebay get no more than 3 people bidding, and 2 of them are most likely the seller shilling their own gear:?

Thanks for the tip Matt-Kun I've a few items i wanna list so this is useful!

BBC reports 'Ebay profits up amid listing drop'Could this be because … BBC reports 'Ebay profits up amid listing drop'Could this be because those greedy [email protected]$][@!)$ increased final value fees.How they justify increasing from 5% to 9% is anyone's guess.


9% is shocking... so if you sell something for £100, ebay takes almost £10 (plus more if paid by paypal). It all started out as something very charitable and noble but has now turned into another nasty corporation. Ebay needs more competition and I hope to change that very soon. More details shall be released.

whatever happened to the free listing days or the 1p listings? I always use ebay as a last resort for selling these days.

sellers - avoid, particularly if youre using low starting bids.. as with any cheaper / half price listing offers, ebay will be swamped, with the result that you wont get much more than the bare minimum for anything...

buyers - see above.. bargains galore... try "ending now" 7 & 10 days after the listing day and youll see what i mean...

Trouble is, ebay still make a killing on the final sale fee, and then paypal rip off charges, so its not that amazing to save a bit on the cheapest part (the insertation fee)

If you use ebay to sell, then this is a welcome saving, thank you.

How did you find out about the saving Matt-Kun?

nope, not at all... its not a great deal - if you were looking to sell something youd be better of paying the extra few pence and selling it on a normal week...

Thanks for the head up mate!

YES!! Its auction only format

I'll have to make sure i mark in my diary 3,5,7 and 10 days after the listing date to pick up the countless items that sell for less than half what they normally do due to the amount of competition, then relist it when the promotion ends and make a profit

super! cheers x

If you want to list your items for free and don't mind people coming to collect and pay in good old cash then try:

When i sold my sax, i got £495 i think, less £25 final fee, and £25 paypal fee, but it was only 10p to insert it, so a 5p saving wouldnt be that important to me really, sorry!

sorry voted cold still a rip of imo with no buy it now included

Excellent, been waiting for this for ages.

Pretty obvious that your not gonna save much on a 99p start price. Although when you consider listing something for over £29.99 will save 75p each its definately a worthwhile deal-especially if you list 300+ items a week as i do

Ah poo, I was gonna list about 10 items on Thursday, now I will have to wait for this lot to clear

I wonder if they will ever do a BIN one again, those are the only ones I personally find useful these days.

SORRY i agree with sockpuppetuk.......another PATHETIC scam by Ebay again...trying to make out that they are giving you SO MUCH back when in effect MOST people start the auctions at 99p and therefore Ebay are giving you a 7 pence reduction.

BIG WOWS EBAY...... !! (thanks for nothing!!)


Im affraid i HATE Ebay with a vengeance...they are rip off merchants and wind me up even more by their big headedness to think that nobody can see what they are doing with these 'so called' deals.

This time last year they had GOOD decent honest deals where youd get 1p listing for buy it nows no matter what price.....they have not done this since February and therefore i can only assume they have become over confident because there is no competition.

These 'fake' deals just keep on winding sensible people up that can see passed there 'apparent' worth.

GIVE US SOME 'DECENT' DEALS EBAY OR DONT BOTHER

And do you know what little charm offensive Ebay have planned for the next 12 months?? - i'll tell you ------

Starting with a few categories first ..Ebay are going to be making it COMPULSORY to accept ONLY Paypal (oh, in case you didnt know Payal and Ebay are the SAME company - clever that isnt it!!) SO that means that in 12 omnths time when they have introduced this across the board, sellers will not only HAVE to stump up 10% + in listing/FV fees but will be FORCED to accept PAYPAL ONLY and therefore be BULLIED into paying the 5% Paypal fees too ....so basically if you sell something for £100 youll be giving Ebay around £15-£20 in the end ....its shocking isnt it...you couldnt make it up.

But remember ]quidco and you'll get 35% back...so it's only £6.50 they're robbing you.
Plus Buy it now's are usually used more by businesses...the average seller is more likely to only lose 3.25% (5%-35%).


----edit----
Oops forget that you only get 35% cashback if you're the buyer, but still I buy more than I sell so I'm happy.

Maybe i cant remember the details, I just remember paying loads at the end and very little for the insertation. Either way, if it was a 50% off final value fees Id see that as a real deal.
