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. Items must be listed with a native mobile application downloaded from the Apple, Android, Windows, or BlackBerry app stores to qualify. Click here to download the mobile application.

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. Instead, the discount will be reflected in the “View Account Status” section in My eBay, as well as in the seller’s next invoice.

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. Only single quantity listings are eligible for this Promotion. Listings in which the seller is selling a single quantity of an item are eligible, but listings in which multiple items are being sold through the same listing are not eligible.
This Promotion does not apply to the following: 30-day and Good ‘Til Cancelled listing durations, items listed in eBay Motors Passenger Vehicles, Motorcycles, Boats, Power Sports, Other Vehicles, Motors Local Market, Professional Services, Real Estate, Classified Ad listings.

Any applicable PayPal fees will still apply.
When listing an item in multiple categories, sellers will not pay the Insertion Fee for the first category but will be charged an Insertion Fee for each additional category selected. For example, if a seller lists one item in two (2) different categories, the seller will not incur an Insertion Fee for the first category, but will be charged for the second category.
Only sellers whose accounts meet eBay’s minimum seller performance standards are eligible. If you are invited to participate in the Promotion, please sign in to My eBay and view your Seller Dashboard to verify whether your account is currently meeting the standards. If you have received fewer than 10 detailed seller ratings from buyers, this information will not appear in My eBay; however, you will receive email notification if your account falls below the minimum performance standards. Find out more about seller performance standards.
All existing selling limits on sellers’ account (as well as category and item limits) still apply, and may exclude and prevent seller from creating the maximum number of listings in this Promotion.
The Promotional Rate does not apply to listings with a start date prior to Tuesday, February 12, 2013, including those listings revised during the Promotion Period. Additionally, the Promotional Rate will not apply to listings scheduled to start after the Promotion Period.

I just called them and it listed my item as 30 day fixed price auction instead of the 7 that I wanted so this was the reason for the issue. I did not even see the option in the mobile site to change how many days it is listed for. The default is 30 and then you would have to hit a down arrow to see the hidden menu to change the number of days. Very deceitful. They would not credit me and I will be contacting the BBB about this
Good luck, ebay won't give rats a$$ about a complaint either. I'm sure they got plenty of complains already

Lots of people on this thread managed to list for the allowed # of days, so they must have been able to either confirm or change the setting through mobile. You're the first to claim the menu is "hidden". Couldn't be user error, right?

BBB is as useful as a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest.

I'm surprised another ebay alternative hasn't caught on. The ebay fees are ridiculous. I can't believe how greedy they are. Then they hit you on the back end with the paypal fee too. I wouldn't have even listed if not for the free listing I thought I was going to get

I'm sure making the 30 day listing not part of this promotion and that being the default listing method was a coincidence right? They expect people to not know how to change it. No need to be a jerk about it. If you click on the mobile app you will clearly see you it's not very user friendly. You have to click on the listing box and then click the down arrow to even see the option to change the number of days. It's hidden until you click around in there

I started selling stuff on craigslist, I know you don't get as much exposure as ebay but it's free and cash deal only. You don't have to worry about fees, printing label, shipping, etc.

I'm not aware of 30-day listings ever been included in promotions, mobile or otherwise. Doesn't mobile show you what you're committing to before you confirm the listing?

Each site has its pros and cons. Depending on the product, eBay's counter argument would be you don't have to worry about being robbed, or someone not showing up, or someone haggling you down on price, etc, etc. Or, you don't have to worry about someone being at your home, if its a large item, such as furniture, big screen TV, appliances, etc.

Im VERY leary of someone who says they are interested, lets say an old stove, come by, verify its good, and then say let me think about it and never hear from them again. Great way for someone to scope out for whatever reason.

I always meet in a public place for smaller items and if I have to sell a large item, I leave it outside for people to look at it

My item sold, but when the person paid with paypal, there was a fee accepting paypal as pament. Since when? Sorry I haven't sold on eBay in while.
So pretty much there is a 8% fee from the final (waived this time) and a another paypal fee?

Since many years ago.

Yes, eBay charges you a fee for letting you list and sell your item. PayPal charges you a fee for handling the payment transaction. If you use some other payment service, or your own merchant account, or the buyer asks to pay with a money order and you agree, then PayPal gets nothing because they wouldn't be involved.
