When is it?
For listings in the U.S., this Promotion starts on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at 00:00:01 PT (12:00 AM plus one second), and will end on Thursday, February 14, 2013, at 23:59:59 PT (11:59 PM plus 59 seconds) (the “Promotion Period”).

How do I get the Promotional Rate?
Sellers that have been invited to participate in the Promotion will automatically receive the Promotional rate when they create one listing during the Promotion Period in Auction-style, Auction-style with the Buy It Now feature added, or Fixed Price formats by using an eBay mobile application and the sellers’ qualifying eBay User ID.

You will still get screwed by PayPal so no escape; resistance is futile
So? I would have Paypal fees on a forum sale as well. That's not an eBay fee issue.

The hell are you talking about? You have a better site to get that kind of exposure for your sales and a facilitated transaction process with feedback? Go use it. The rest of us find it worth the fees, hence eBay's continued success.

Wrong. More like about 8%. While expensive, eBay isn't THAT high. Go use a fee calculator like I linked above.... selling a laptop for $900 shipped would result in around an 8.1% fee between paypal & ebay together, or $72.90 on the 900.

what does this mean? from posting to being sold, you are charged NOTHING? i quit ebay sometime ago cos both ebay and paypal each charged 10%. being seller in ebay was a losing game.
eBay is currently about 9% to 10% on average. PayPal has never, ever, ever been more than 3%. Ever.

The truth bay be bad, but it's not your fiction. shake head

That's wrong, both cost-wise and the "doing nothing" part. A sale of $900 including shipping comes to a $46.50 ebay fee including insertion/final value, plus a $26.40 paypal fee. That's a total of $72.90, or ~8.1%. Additionally, they provide exposure like no other site can manage as an outlet for people to list on, and provide a good checkout system for customers, a smooth feedback system, and confidence to buyers. Go toss up your stuff on a random domain you make and see how well it sells... Wink.

Default settings, with category "Electronics/Computers". $900 BIN price on a fixed-price listing. I never use auction format due to the higher fees and risk of non-paying bidders. With fixed price and immediate payment required, things go smoothly. Your original figure was right for an auction format, as it turns out.... which is exorbitantly high, but still often worth it. I agree the fees are up there, more than they should be. However, I've yet to find a better way to sell my random stuff overall, so for me it's worth it.
