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.

In my general experiences with CL, you often have to mark stuff down lower to get a sale. Ends up being a wash and it's not at all uncommon to earn more on Ebay even after their expenses plus shipping plus paypal fees. Not to mention, sells quicker on Ebay.

I wish I had the luck some of you seem to have on CL. It's mostly a time waster.
Don't bend over to stupid customers. Have them come to you to purchase items, as they would any store. I'm not wasting my time to cater to some guy who possibly might purchase something I have.

CL can get frustrating. "Oh I see this laptop you have posted for $500, will you take $100???? Can I trade you this coat rack for your laptop???"

Add to the equation all the idiots you have no info about, willing to kill for the mere couple of hundred bucks, and the picture is complete.

Last time I did this the no-fees deal was for auction style listings only. Didn't read the Ts and Cs of this but it might be worth checking out before you go making a high $$$ BIN.

Well, I didn't get the email after being on eBay for 12years, giving eBay thousands of dollars in fees, I have nothing to worry about.

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.
Buyer fraud is rampant on Ebay. It is your word vs. there's as to whether it was a brick or a laptop you mailed.

How about "what if I pay in cash, I can give you cash, cash on the spot, etc." Yeah, I was gonna take five turns on your sister as a payment.

Guess I've been lucky so far. Except the stupid newcomers bidding on the auction and then disappearing forever without making payment.
EBay is about trust and honesty, or at least it used to be this way.

Quote from spydersdeals69 View Post :
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 is why I said it ranges between 10-15% INCLUDING Paypal, and 13% certainly falls into that. Also, if you sell your item on ebay after a certain amount, it will be higher than 10%. Because his item is $900, i thought it might be different.

Perhaps you misread and thought that I meant paypal and ebay both charge 10-15% separately, when I actually meant 10-15% together since both are owned by the same company.

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.
I put the $900 final price and it gave me: $81 total ebay fee. $26.40 in paypal fee. Total fee: $107.40. Fee Percentage: 11.93%. It falls in the range of 10-15%. So I am not wrong, but thanks for the info. Will use it in the future to calculate ebay fees for my selling.
