Expires on 28/02/2018Found 1st Feb
From today 01/02/2018 until 28/02/2018 listings are free on eBay, and only pay if the item sells.

Received the email today, unknown of account specific.

Am half asleep from getting back from work but thought I would post this first before bed.

Just checked T&C
Create your listing(s) in an eligible category during the promotion period using the auction-style or fixed price format and you won’t pay an insertion fee per listing (promotional rate) during the promotion period.

The number of listings eligible under this promotion is limited to 100 listings per day or by your seller restrictions, whichever you reach first. Click here to learn more about selling limits.

Who is eligible?
eBay.co.uk registered private sellers only. Participation is linked to the seller’s account and is not transferable. Sellers must be registered as a resident in the UK.


Insertion fees for 1 day & 3 days duration listings, listing upgrade fees, automatically relisted listing fees and final value fees will still apply.

So check your emails

How much do you pay when it sells?

How much do you pay when it sells?


Usually 10% of the final value plus around 2-3% to PayPal if taking payment via them.
"only pay when you sells" are you a Meerkat?
Perhaps they're just simples!
Actually feel sorry for OP, he obviously doesn't use eBay to sell so got this message , thought it was a good offer and is now going to wake to an artic freeze

Nope I take that back , just had a quick look through the other deals and someone else posted this 10 hours ago ...................

I don't think I have payed to list an item on eBay for a good few years. For the best though no thanks to there sky high fees.
Sounds just like an eScam description. Very limited truth, buttered up to sound great.

Cancel your listing and eScam can charge you whatever they like. And deduct the money from Paypal, owned by your eScam

Free applies to the most basic of listings with no extras (large pics, sub title etc)

Typical partial truths lies from the home of scammers and con-artists
This deal has been running for well over a year, but there are some categories/sellers who stopped getting it.

We used to have to rely on regular promos to list more than 100 per month (been so long now I forget the exact details ! ) but this was brought in for private sellers, much to the disgust of business sellers who have to pay for every listing - ebay say they get some free listings with their business fees, so it's really a fee to sell, by another name.

It was great when it started, and I still panic at the end of every month in case it isn't continued, but many people probably think this is now normal, especially if they only started selling recently.

This promo will obviously end sometime - can you imagine the howls of rage, especially from those who have built up a 'business' because of it, but are still registered as private, something which everyone ought to read the ebay discussion boards to understand, as the arguments get very heated.

Wow...... you must have had some bad experiences ??

paypal is not owned by ebay, that ended ages ago, so you are a bit out of date on that one.

If you cancel a fixed price listing there is no charge....... I do it all the time. There is only a charge for cancelling an auction when someone has put a bid in - surely that's fair enough, as otherwise scammers would list stuff and cancel a sale if the price was too low, which is not fair on a buyer who thinks they have a bargain

In fact, your little rant is full of inaccuracies and partial truths, and you go on about ebay - the words 'pot', 'kettle' and 'black' spring to mind !
"Buy one and get another for the same price" type deal. Lol

Anyone seen a FVF deal recently?? I’ve not seen one in a while
10% Ebay 3.4% paypal then postage, your want it insured cause everyone in the uk are scummy, so your be looking at 17-20% time its gone, and even then you might get a claim 5 months later cause the user does not want it anymore and claims was faulty when sent, regardless of your no returns, :P

If you read it correctly it’s correct “only pay when it sells “ you new to English are you ?
The difference is now you have to activate this offer, it is not automatic like it was before.
I used sell a lot of stuff on eBay, but stopped as I think 10% comission plus another few for PayPal payment is really over the top, bye, bye eBay ;-)
The missus had the "Pay only when you sell" (no insertion fees on up to 100 listings per day) in the "Promotional Offers" section of her "My eBay" for well over a year.

Today however, she noticed that it's gone from her promo offers.

She just has the "20 free listings per month" and "Schedule 20 listings per month for free".

Anyone else had this happen?

I also had that happen after around 6 months of having free listings.. Just looking on here to see whether it was the same for anybody else..

Boring get a jigsaw
Sorry OP nothing against you but, ive already voted this cold once already, and im upset i cant vote it cold again. Ebay has a cheek trying to make us spend money to list items on their website, even if they dont sell. This shouldn't be a special offer, it should be a standard practice on their website. As well as £1 FVF. Ebay's made so much money from me and everyone else over the years. No other selling website charges so much in fee's as Ebay. If Ebay wants to become as good as it once was, then Ebay needs to dramatically cut their charges, hopefully to zero like everywhere else, then people might return to using it like before. Oh i remember the days auctions used to dramatically increase at the very last minute to a good amount of money, even at the last second they'd be loads of bids. That hardly happens now as hardly anyone uses it
