Free £10 voucher for people using old Ebay app @ Ebay

64
Found 22nd Nov 2017
Just got a notification on my old ebay app (version 2.6.1.1), which is about 2 years or so old, that the app is being retired. And as an incentive to upgrade they are giving out a £10 voucher with no minimum spend. Thought it'd be useful info for anyone stil using the old app. Guessing it is any version of the app older than version 5.

I can't actually update the app , which is on my tablet , due to space. But i logged onto my ebay account on the recent version of the app on my phone and the voucher was there on my account as i went to check out, you just select it under my vouchers.

The voucher lasts till 4th of December, so im guessing that is when they pull the plug on the old versions of the app and force you to upgrade to continue using it.

For me it popped up at the bottom about it. The code looks generic but have tried it on my parents accounts and didn't seem to work entering the code. So must only work for the accounts that received it. And technically i didn't enter it on the new updated after all as i activated as shown in the picture in the description

It should be the people who updated being rewarded, not the people not updating
So can you find the old apk online and install that to get the £10 voucher?

Life doesn't work like that, it's like new bank customers will get £100 but people who have been with them for years gets zip.

Huh...



Thought i made it pretty straight forward. Basically if you have a rather old version of the ebay app installed, sign into it (if you aren't already) and you could well have a £10 voucher waiting for you as i had. You just have to update the old app, or sign into a new version of the app to activate the voucher if you have received it

I'm using the old app and all I got is a message saying "update by jan 2018 or be banished".

I thought about that, dunno if that will work with them retiring the old versions it may automatically force an update. Worth a punt if you can do.

Just had the old app on my android tablet and never bothered updating it since i got it. Thought others may also be in a similar boat of not updating apps and could help them out

I have the old version of the app on my tablet - how do I find out if I have a voucher OP? Did you only find out you had one at checkout? Don't want to risk buying something incase I don't have it!

Surely the reason for them giving away a voucher is that many people may have old devices running old versions of android which may not support the newer version - so they're basically taking the eBay app off them for good
just post the code and we can all try it

Thanks - did you have to update the app before you saw the voucher? There's no section like that on the app version I have

i did have my fingers crossed it would of worked for people, especially with it looking like a generic code, but must only work if you had received it.

hopefully someone else has received the voucher though, cant imagine its just me. i know ebay have sent out vouchers before for select accounts, but id never received one.
anyone tried installing an old version of the app?

Yes. It doesn't work, see previous comment.

Like you I got an email some time ago that I have to update other way they won't support old version.
Ignored threats and about a week ago was scrolling, looking for something on ebay and at the bottom of the item, where paypal and payments bits are, it said I'll get £10 off, courtesy of paypal, if I update to 5 or over iOS or android. And it showed on all items I was looking at. So I did update and redeem the voucher. No code supplied but you have to chose that paypal voucher during payment process.
I believe your purchase needs to be over 10 quid for the voucher to be visible/applicable.

Look for the items with price tag over 10.
After the purchase, offer disappeared. And it's only for mobile apps doesn't work on desktop version.
I am giving it a try when £10 off a £10 buy with xmas due is my cup of tea.
Ironically I prefer the app to the current one

I think you're the only person who uses your instead of you're.

for originality
I dug out an old Samsung thing running Android 4.x, installed an old version of eBay from the site referenced above, and didn't get offered the voucher, nor did I get a rude message about the app bring discontinued.
Kennnnnny14 m ago

I got it too.



What version were you running? I too have tried installing an older version out of interest (3.0.0.19) and am not getting a notification.
