eBay Fixed Price (Buy it now) Listings free August 8-18, possible YMMV
I just got an eBay Message Center message saying that fixed price listings will be free from 8/8 to 8/18. Up to 5000 listings. It's a possible YMMV situation but I checked an account that didn't get this email, and when I attempted to list a fixed price item, the listing fee was also free there.
Referring back to a previous SD thread, some SDers didn't see the point. But fixed price listings cost 50 cents each normally and the main advantage is that BIN listings charge the seller lower final value fees.
There will be eBay/PayPal haters but I hope this will be useful for people who sell via eBay.
Ebay sucks, but its the only game in town, so I use it. Thumbs up for putting this here. I only found out about it on the ebay discussions boards. It wasn't even under announcements. Why have a listing sale and keep it a secret? But that's ebay for ya.
I've received messages from ebay about the free listing days - after they were already over. I've received the last two beforehand though.
Might be the same case here, some people get the notification, others won't hear about it until it's already underway or over.
Hard to tell if you're getting the free listing as the promo or as part of your 50 free listings per month until you list one and it either shows the number of promo listings remaining, or you don't use up any of your 50 free ones.
Anyone want to buy a Canon T3 for 99¢ w/ $399 shipping? Nice to ONLY be raped by PP, feels more intimate than the normal chain gang raping...
I thought they put an end to that, as typically, they charge fees on the item AND shipping now, and it equals the same price as if you had free shipping and including shipping in the overall price. That loop is closed.

I just asked my wife about this deal and she said NO!!!!!!! After I hung up the phone, i said "to HELL with that"! I'M IN FOR TWO!!!
You don't need to wish that you didn't have a wife......you just need to exchange your skirt for her pants.
They've stretched me out many times. But I screw them over though when I can.
Oh I would love to hear how to screw eBay over. Their new rules abouts top rated sellers needing to offer returns and 1 day handling to get a discount, and now only folks who offer those service will be deemed top rated, Im sure they are doing their best to look good to some, like a retail store, while knowing they will not have to shell out as much discounts to sellers as they use too. Yeah, its truly a buyer's world on eBay, no matter what they say they are doing for the good sellers.
I agree that eBay and PayPal screw you in the ass but what can you do they have the monopoly.
I remember a conversation asking about why they removed the ability to leave negative feedback on buyers. The rep said, do you know of any retail stores that rate their buyers....Im thinking, so eBay wants to be a RETAIL store and confirm their sellers to such (bad move IMO), but they said since stores don't rate buyers, why should sellers on eBay. I challegend that with about the high amount of scammers on eBay. They go on to say they have improved on protecting sellers. But again, my point, you may protect sellers AFTER they have lost their product and funds, and THEN flag the person or ban them.
Im sure they get it, but hey, in the end, their model in screwing their sellers is putting wine and lobster on the table for dinner while we use our change for juicebox and cheese
