About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Retailers are extending their return policies for Christmas: Full List of Shops Extending Returns Policies for Christmas

eBay selling fees offer, selected accounts. 80% off Final Value Fees for up to 100 listings. Activate via the link if eligible. Runs from 23rd September to 26th September.

If you are not eligible and get an expired message try again on Friday when the promo starts or try the other offers which you may have on an eBay account / accounts


What's it all about?

  • Get 80% off variable percentage final value fees ("FVF") per listing in final value fees if the item sells and pay no insertion fee.
  • A fixed order level fee of 30p and other fees, including any International fees, still apply.
  • Promotion is valid for up to 100 listings on eBay.
  • Listings must start during the promotional period.
  • Listings can be auction-style or fixed price format.
  • The promotion start and end dates are included in the email we send to invited sellers.
  • Items must sell within the first listing period.

Sounds good, where do I find the promotion and how do I sign up?

You can take part in the promotion on eBay.co.uk. Eligible sellers will receive an email with the RSVP link to the offer. You must opt in to the promotion by clicking on this link before any of your 100 listings start.

Anything else I need to know?

eBay charge an FVF when your item(s) sell(s). The FVF charged per order consists of: (i) a variable portion (“Variable Portion FVF”) which is calculated as a percentage of the Total Sale Amount; and (ii) a fixed portion (“Fixed Portion FVF”) for example 30p. The Total Sale Amount means the amount the buyer pays for an order, including the item price, postage, taxes and any other applicable fees.

The FVF Discount in this promotion applies to the Variable Portion FVF (net of any other discounts) in respect of the eligible items’ Total Sale Amounts. For example, if you would have been charged 12.80% on the Total Sales Amount, the 80% FVF discount will reduce this to 2.56%. The Fixed Portion FVF (e.g. 30p) will not be discounted. Therefore, the fixed charge of 30p per order will still apply.

You won't pay an insertion fee for each of the 100 listings. Listing upgrade fees will still apply and will be charged according to the eBay fees policy.

You may also be subject to International fees (https://www.ebay.co.uk/help/selling/fees-credits-invoices/fees-private-sellers?id=4822#section8).

The number of listings eligible under this promotion may be less where seller restrictions apply. Click here (https://www.ebay.co.uk/help/selling/listings/selling-limits?id=4107) to learn more about selling allowances.

Who can take part?

  • This Promotion is open to all registered Private Sellers who (a) have been invited to take part, (b) are registered to managed payments, and (c) have actively opted in (“Eligible Sellers”). If you have not registered for managed payments you will be prompted to update your details after you opt-in to the Promotion.
  • Participation is linked to the seller's account and is not transferable.
  • Eligible Sellers’ accounts must meet eBay minimum seller performance standards.
  • Please sign in to My eBay and view your seller standards dashboard to verify whether your account is currently meeting the standards. The seller standards dashboard is available to all sellers here (https://sellerstandards.ebay.co.uk/dashboard).
  • If you registered after 15 March 2011 or haven't listed any items for a while, you may have a listing allowance of 10 items per month or of £650 per month, whichever is reached first. You may be able to increase this allowance by providing additional verification.
  • An eligible item previously scheduled to go live during the promotional period will qualify for the promotion only if you have opted in to the promotion before the listing starts.
  • If an item that is eligible for the promotion had previously closed without a successful sale and is re-listed during the promotion period, it will form a part of the 100 listings limit of the promotion.
  • You will not receive a refund of your original insertion fee if the item sells.
  • Listings do not have to successfully sell during the promotional period to be eligible.
  • If an item qualifies for the promotion and when the item sells, the invoice will indicate the fee including the discount. Please note: if the item does not sell the first time and if you relist it after the promotional period or if it is automatically relisted during the promotional period, standard final value fees will be charged according to the eBay fees policy when the relisted item sells.
  • Items that are automatically relisted through the Automatic relist function or the Good 'Till Cancelled function will be charged.
  • Only single quantity listings are eligible.
  • For items listed in 2 or more categories, only the insertion fee for the first category is included. Standard insertion fees will be charged for listing the same item for each additional category, according to the eBay fees policy.
  • Free listings in this promotion do not count towards your monthly 1000 free listings.
  • Your first listing period may vary and is dependent on the listing format you choose (e.g. – auction-style vs buy-it-now), the duration of the listing you choose and the listing experience you use. The first listing period will be considered to have been ended when the listing you create first renews or relists.

    I wasn't accepted for 70% earlier but I'm accepted for 80% off, very strange but I'm not moaning
    What's 30p level fees ? Is that the 30p added on to the final fee ? (edited)
    minifig290's avatar
    To work out your final earnings from a sale just do this.

    Items price - 12.8% (then take 80% off 12.8% total) + 30p.

    So for a listing which sells at £10 - 12.8% = £1.28
    £1.28 - 80% = £0.25
    £0.25 + 30p = £0.55

    So for a £10 item your fees should be 55p

    This doesn't include any other fees though which could be added, such as fees for promoted listing or having a buy it now and bidding option on a listing together. (edited)

    I’m so sorry if I sound dumb but I can’t work it out😳 I want to sell an item for £1750.00 I have the 80% discounted fee thing but can anyone help me with what the price I would pay?? Thank you for understanding 🙏🏻
    The.Fat.Cat's avatar
    Had to hunt around for it, but finally found this helpful chart -


    Or, to do it on a calculator.
    1750.00 times by 12.8%, times by 20%, plus 0.30, should give you what you'll pay...I think, lol. (edited)

    Just a note of warning, I have been selling on eBay for decades, and a few months ago they stopped sending me my money on what i had sold and are still holding it until I give them a copy of my drivers license or passport, which I am refusing to do. I have the same account, 100% feedback, same bank details, and they waited until they owed me mega bucks to pull this. It is with the financial ombudsman, but beware. They say it is in their November T&C update.that they may do this. I asked why, and they say for 'my protection', although they are unable to explain how I am protected by giving them my personal data. (edited)
    Starbocks's avatar
    Very simple - since ebay moved to eBay Managed Payments, they need to verify your identity, before you can disburse money into your bank account. (If I had to guess, I would say this is a legal requirement, not so much for data collection).

    I'm sure you didn't think much of it when you had to verify your identiy with PayPal, right?
    Well, ebay provides the same service now.

    I haven't sold anything on ebay for over 8 years think I will be eligible on Friday? Right now, I am getting this error:

    Unfortunately, you can no longer sign up for this promotional offer because it has expired.
    Darter's avatar
    If it's been that long since you sold on ebay, I would say that you will qualify for the £1 offer. The £1 offer seems to favour people like yourself.
  6. Streetyking's avatar
    Weird. I get this message…

    You're not eligible for this promotional offer because your seller standing is Below Standard.

    I am 100% feedback on 85….

    So strange
    Darter's avatar
    Seller standing is not only based on your feedback. It is from your detailed seller ratings which can be seen in your seller dashboard. You may have had a few late despatches / deliveries, buyers marking purchases giving you low item as described ratings etc or something else. If you go to your seller dashboard, you should see where the problem is. (edited)

    Is it just me or is Royal Mail Next Day Special Delivery not available to add as a postage option when creating a new listing?
    Darter's avatar
    Always available to me. By 9am and by 1pm
  8. HXL's avatar
    Great, I am only listing when it's on offer, otherwise too expensive to sell

    For anyone where the deal link didn't work this week like me, I opened my app just now > saw the banner and I've now been able to activate fine! Hurrah!
  13. bob786's avatar
    I’ve got 13 items listed. But the offer indicator is saying I have 92 listing left (ie only 8 are using the offer?).

    any idea why and how can I check which listings are not under offer?
    superpanda's avatar
    Check the dates and times you listed them. Some of them must have been listed before this offer started.
  14. webopticben's avatar
    I listed something on Friday but seem to be getting charged the full amount on my fees - not sure why. It says I’ve accepted the offer. I even ended the listing today and relisted and seem to be still getting changed the full fees

    Interesting, the £1 and 70% didn't work (the 70% is the one I've had to use for almost a year) but today this did! Thanks OP
  26. BrianButterfield's avatar
    Last time they accepted me and then took the offer away on the day :/ So I hope this time I’m accepted as I have a MacBook to sell and don’t fancy paying 100 percent of the FVF on 2000 lol.
    donmixes85's avatar
    How much a fee on 1500£? Dont you know?
  27. Joshua_Webb's avatar
    This would of course happen the day after I put 41 listings up on my account. Oh well, they weren't high value in the first place. Relistings or items "flagged" by eBay as the same item previously deleted specifically for this offer don't count.
    Sqsq's avatar
    I've always been able to end all my listings and relist with these offers, no problems ever.
    I don't use multi-item listings, etc that are excluded from these deals.

    tempted to sell some more of the old skylanders trap team that i have which are brand new in boxes now

    Thank u worked for me

    If I sell for £150 how much are my fees with this offer?? (edited)

    I always assumed that the benefit you gain from these offers is less than the cost of the lower price you get for only listing your product for a few days, and on a weekend.

    I used to sell lots of stuff on eBay, and I came to the conclusion that you have to have your auction up for a week for lots of people to notice it and decide to bid. Even though they might only place their bid right at the end. And weekends seemed dead, compared ti during the week.

    I felt that I got the best prices when I ran for a week, closing on Thursday evenings.

    I’m happy to be corrected, but I believe these offers are to persuade people to run auctions during the off-season of the week. (edited)

    What do you mean? You can list them for as long as any other normal listing... As long as the listing start date is in the promotion period?

    Didn’t get the £1 or 70% one but got this one. Would have preferred the £1 option but this is better than the full fee anyway
