More rubbish, I won't be touching ebay until £1 final value fees are back and I advise everyone to do the same rather than encourage them to keep pushing this kind of crap.

What a scam - is ebay serious??

Maximum of £50 voucher per sale (so you're getting less than 10% for anything over £500!).
Voucher is valid for ONLY 30 days and you have to spend it on ebay purchasing something else you don't need!
The most ridiculous bit is you can NOT combine vouchers!? You can only apply ONE voucher at checkout - what a joke lol!?
If you spend less than the voucher value, you LOSE the remainder of the voucher(!) - wow...

Who sat there and came up with this promotion???

What a surprise - Just found this promotion magically applies to my ebay account after a drought of months and months of nothing working. Just ridiculous.

Christ, I mean they’re effectively giving you 100% of your fees back for selling an item in the form of a voucher you can buy anything with. Pretty generous really, you can get anything and everything on eBay so no shortage of things to spend it on.

I think we have been spoilt with the £1 fvf offers, can’t believe the hostility towards eBay for trying different promos - they’re a business after all not a charity! Some of these comments come across as very entitled.

Why do you think it's a good deal?


Because 10% Back in coupons is better than nothing back (currently) I haven't been eligible for the £1 selling fees the last three times, so I'll take what I can get

Presumably this is instead of final value fee promotions. Essentially you can claim back the standard final value fee but with a load of restrictions. No thanks, not happening.

Ah so its a voucher per item, I thought it accumulated over the period. Not so great!
Very odd promotion. So basically £2000 worth of listings and they will give you a voucher for 10% then after that no more vouchers? I have about £7k worth of items I want to get rid of now so I really was hoping for £1 fees. But I'm guessing while this promo is running they won't offer that. Has £1 fees been axed?
I just logged in to see what everyone is saying on this, as I just received it now didn't read the terms. Thanks @Master_Yoda I am sitting on a small pile of stuff that I want to list.

When is that £1 offer back?
Without £1 fee I’ve been hit with a £150 fee bill this month . I think the £1 sell fee have gone
What a bunch of drama queens....
So they are drawing straws up in eBay towers of how they can take the pish , this month it’s claim a voucher .They can sod right off I won’t be listing a thing the greedy gits . If we all do the same they will get the message

Yet another offer I’m not eligible for. Over 20 years of eBaying and I get zero offers off them.
Not available for me
, which is annoying but it's also an annoying promo anyway.....

This is why £1 final value fees was a bad idea for eBay to have introduced.

People become expectant, like they deserve something because they've had it before.

FYI, £1 fees are almost certainly a loss-leading promotion to draw people in, and wouldn't be anywhere near enough to cover all costs if it was the permanent normal.

If you want free listings, go on gumtree or Facebook and deal with the uncertainty and risk is selling without protection.

I think this is better than a kick in the teeth!

I've not been eligible for the £1 fees for ages. As my wife is on reduced hours I've been selling lots. My fees for the last month were £1,994.04 when this could have been less than £50 if I was eligible for the £1 fvf deal.

I still have a few items to shift so I'll still take this over nothing!

I'm the same, my wife nor I had nothing for ages offer wise so this is finally something I can use and I'm gonig to take it. Moving house and a few bits to sell, might save me £20.
I really don't think £1 on every sale is a loss leader, they also now make money on packlink. The only loss leaders are when they offer stuff like 25% cashback on purchases (a recent Quidco promo). They need to be sensible about their fees and realise that more and more people use Facebook marketplace and all their shady Chinese tat sellers are happy to use Amazon (or use Facebook ads to add a big mark up to their drop shipped items).

I image it’s most definitely not a loss leader, however I imagine they are most definitely losing money but not offering £1 FVF.

My fees to eBay based on the same period last year are down 75% all because I won’t list unless it’s a £1 FVF deal and I’m not desperate to shift my stuff.

If £1 fvf is a loss leader then surely this infers that eBay make a loss on anything sold under £10, or am I missing something?

No, not necessarily. Insurance coverage and cost associated with more expensive items will be higher than lower cost items, so it may be that £1 is enough on small items. It also might be the case that items under £10 make up a much smaller proportion of overall sales, so the average £ per item they receive is much higher than that.

Remember, £1 is a max fee. Their usual fee is 10% of any item. If they say break even at 4%, that's a 6% profit margin per item. If the average cost of a sold item during £1fvf is say £30, £1 is only 3.3%, meaning they'd be losing 0.7% of each item value per transaction, on average. However, most people will use £1fvf on high price items, so I imagine the average sale price is much greater, and the losses much more significant.

Costs are never calculated in isolation when looking at p&l on a business-wide scale.

Yes, but you're assuming your eBay behaviour is typical, when in reality it's probably not.

If they were losing money not offering it, then they would do it more often.

And unless you think eBay is run out of a basement, I don't see how you think they could make money with a max £1 fee per item.

Wow - is this guy a stand up comedian?? "Pretty generous really"??
It is not just about the £1 FVF.

If sellers are going to pay the extortionate fees of eBay then they will increase the price of the item to cover the cost. Nobody wants to sell at a loss.
This isn't quite clear to me - does this count if you sell something in the motors category?
Last night I listed a cheap caravan, which I know is going to be hit with the £25 sale fee presuming it sells.
Wondering if I should cancel and relist (possibly attracting an extra £15 listing fee).

Do you work for eBay or something? The default fee of 10% is extortionate, with PayPal on top that's almost 15% of your sale down the drain. Not to to mention the push to offer free postage for greater exposure.

If they think we've suddenly forgotten that then they will soon be kissing goodbye to a huge chunk of private sellers. We will indeed switch to other marketplaces.

"anything and everything on eBay"

Christ, are you serious? Most of the items on Ebay are overpriced with no warranty after the initial 30-45 day period.

Right... so eBay are saying "if you use our platform that we built up over many years, which we have spent hundreds of millions on advertising and making visible to the masses to sell your item, we will charge you a 10% fee but then give you that 10% fee back to spend on anything you like, effectively meaning you've sold for absolutely zero, free, nothing"

And you don't think that's generous considering they employ 15,000 people and have csutomer support over the phone, email, chat etc etc.

Well then, I can't help you!

£1 fees are NOT loss leaders lol - they make a fortune selling with £1 fees! They don't handle, package or store any goods - we do everything. Their costs are basically nothing and it's free money for them. PayPal also make a fortune and take full money during those promos for basically doing nothing aswell. The same people who profit from eBay profit from PayPal and have shares and ownership in both companies. We are not mugs and all eBay do is use all of us for pure greed. Without us, they are nothing.

While it’s certainly not as good as the £1 offer, it’s better than nothing and good for lower value sales.

They make a fortune selling with £1 fees?

You realise they have technical support staff to keep their servers and networks working, customer support staff manning the phones, advertising costs, people constantly trying to commit fraud which they have departments to combat, premises worldwide with equipment that needs upkeep etc etc.

You come across like you don't understand the absolute basics of business! £1 fvf has literally been a way to onboard more people to eBay selling, with the hope that a percentage of them will 'get the bug' for it, and sell when the fees are at the normal levels. eBay would be 100% unsustainable at £1 fvf on every sale, they wouldn't even be able to cover staffing costs!

However..................................

NO WAY EBAY!!!

£1 FVF or I'm not relisting my items.

Please everyone - we can only beat them by acting together as one. Show them who is in charge!

PLEASE DON'T AVAIL OF THIS "OFFER"!!
