eBay announced a new promotion today, but only non-store sellers received the announcement –it was not listed on the regular announcements page. eBay did not explain why store sellers were excluded. But for those of you who are not eBay Store subscribers, this is a pretty good deal!
Starting August 3, 2010, list your items for free—no Insertion Fees, regardless of the start price of your item. Just list them Auction-style with no reserve price.
- Get free Insertion Fees for up to 100 Auction-style listings—regardless of start price
- List even big ticket items—start the bidding where you want
- Pay only if your item sells
There are few catches:
