It appears that eBay is seeing the summer slowdown as much as the sellers. For the second time in two weeks, eBay is having a listing sale. Today Tuesday, August 9, eBay listings will cost only 1-cent. The listing fee sale applies to both store subscribers and non-store subscribers and it covers eBay.com, eBay Motors and eBay Canada.
Tuesday is one of the worst days to end a listing. So instead of using a 7-day listing that would end your listing on Tuesday, use a 5-day listing. That will end your listing on Sunday –a much better day with a lot more eyeballs on the site than on Tuesday.
