What is the promotion?
Invited sellers (“sellers”) who list in the Auction-style, Auction-style with the Buy It Now feature added, or Fixed Price formats via an approved eBay mobile application pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein will pay no Insertion Fee, and no Final Value Fee (collectively referred to as "Promotion") for one listing during the Promotion period as defined below. Please note: free Insertion Fee and free Final Value Fee will be applied to seller’s first listing only during the Promotion.

1, 3, 5, and 7-day listing durations are included as part of this Promotion. 10-day listings in the Fixed Price format are also included. 10-day Auction-style listings will not be charged an Insertion Fee, but will continue to be subject to the listing upgrade fee.

Who’s eligible?
The Promotion is available by invitation only. Sellers that qualify for participation will have received an email, and/or a message in My eBay. The Promotion is then activated with the seller’s qualifying eBay User ID. The Promotion is for invited sellers only and is not transferrable.
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”). For listings in Canada, this Promotion will begin at 00:00:01 ET (12:00 AM plus one second) on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 and will end on Thursday, February 14, 2013, at 23:59:59 ET (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.

Qualifying items must be listed with an eBay mobile application for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, or BlackBerry. Items listed on eBay.com from the browser of a mobile device do not qualify. Similarly, items listed by visiting eBay.com on a desktop computer browser do not qualify.

An important note about how Final Value Fees will be displayed: For sellers listing with an eBay mobile application, the zero Final Value Fee Promotional Rate will not be shown during the listing process.

Summary of Restrictions & Exclusions. Please take time to read the full terms for all the details.

Sellers can list one item as part of this Promotion with an eBay mobile application for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, or BlackBerry.

Actually, Paypal charges very reasonable fee. I can't think of any other credit card processor charging lower than Paypal. Now, Ebay on the other hand, their fees are borderline sodomy.

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.
I have attached a picture.

EDIT: I didn't see the last part of your message about auction style formats. I didn't notice that BIN had cheaper fees than auction style. I was under the impression that it was all the same. I learned something new today!

I got the email... I sell on Ebay often. Its not that bad. Sure you get stung, but that is why when you sell, you figure that in... Vs my other options (CL), its way better. I don't have to worry about getting raped, mugged, fondled and robbed...plus I don't even need to leave my bed to sell something Smilie I've also done pretty good on CL on a few items...its just Ebay for me is a better outlet for certain things, plus your audience is a lot bigger, especially living in a small town.

I'll be using this, but I don't own a smartphone...anyone? I could just borrow my brothers?

Agreed 100%. As far as using it, there's no reason someone else's phone couldn't work for you (just login with your account info) if they'll let you use it (a family member as you said would be smart). Smilie

On the promotional email that I received from eBay, it says "List free in outdoor sports, winter sports and golf'. I assume that the promotion doesn't work if I want to sell a cellphone or a kindle tablet??

What are the typical fees on say a laptop with final selling price of $900?

In my general experiences with CL, you often have to mark stuff down lower to get a sale. Ends up being a wash vs Ebay sale, even after factoring in all their associated expenses. CL usually comes out ahead on larger/heavier items though. But otherwise, stuff listed on Ebay sells much quicker.

I wish I had the luck some of you seem to have on CL. It's mostly a time waster. People all gung ho for sure coming to pick up the product but never do and never return a call after you call them to see why they never showed up or to see if they're still interested. etc, etc.

You are right, anyway, it is pretty expensive for the seller. As a result, eBay prices are higher than retailers prices as of now, except Chinese goods.
They are pretty much cutting the branch they are sitting on.
