eBay - how often do they run the £1 listings?

12
Posted 21st Jun
Hi folks, I'm sure many of you took advantage of the £1 selling fee offer from eBay, which is just about to expire.
I couldn't list all the items I wanted, so I'm pondering if I should wait for another similar promotion or just bite the bullet on full 10% fees... How often do you think eBay runs these promotions? Is there a chance to see another one before Christmas?
Thanks

It seems to vary but average once a month to 6 weeks they do them. Although some promos only last the weekend.

That's not bad at all, I was wondering if this was a one-off post-Covid promo to help people earn extra dough by selling unwanted things...
It was near enough every other weekend up until March really. Its frequent enough to never list on a normal day put it that way.

They are regular nowadays, every other week recently.
Every 2 weeks to a month max.
Create random listings now with high prices so no one buys it etc. Then when ready edit the listing and all done. Comes under £1 selling fee

Do you get on the search alerts when you change the listing? For example, I listed a popular bike and I know that it popped on many people's search alerts as I got like 50 page views instantly.

Likely another seller. There is a guy who sells gift cards who puts up a listing saying "Coming Soon" with a £99 value and then edits it once the item is actually available for sale.

Here is one example

Or save them as a draft they when £1 fees just list them, avoids the high prices then lowering etc.
