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.

funny, I've sold 40+laptops and desktops on ebay, 1500+items on amazon, and I never had a single buyer claiming I sent them a brick.
I've had buyers who got refunded, only to see them selling that exact same item that they said they never got under the same account they bought said item. I'm getting more flakes on ebay than craigslist these days. Although I make take advantage of this one promo, I've got a $400 item to sell....

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.
depends on if you do buy it now or auction
auction is standard 9% + 3% paypal (12%)
buy it now is that greater the price of the item, the lower the percentage.
example, for a $100 electronics, you would pay $5.50 ebay fee (Effectively 5.5%+3% paypal = 8.5%)
for a $1000 electronics, you would pay $51 ebay fee (Effectively 5.1%+3% paypal = 8.1%)
for a $2000 electronics, you would pay $71 ebay fee (Effectively 3.65% + 3% paypal = 6.65%)

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%. So I am not wrong. 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.
If you read my follow-up posts, neither of us are wrong: you used auction-style listing, I looked at fixed-price listings. Wink Different costs. Smilie

I think it also depends on what you sell. People buying laptop parts tend to have more fraud and are willing to lie just for a few bucks, and people buying video games are the nicest, from my experience.

I used to sell a lot on eBay and had encountered quite some crooks trying to defraud me, and a lot of times they did succeed. And yes there was a crook who bought an expensive motherboard and literally sent me a brick back, claiming that was what I sent him, and eBay sided with the crook of course, and I had to pay his return shipping for the brick.

picture + serial number.
although I do get little nervous when selling $1k+ items, but all have turned out fine.
about 3% of things gets returned, but most are just change of minds that I can resell right away.

So has the promotion actually started yet for US sellers? It says that the promotion begins at 12:00:01 PT. I just listed a fixed-style listing and got charged a $0.50 insertion fee which has me wondering.

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.
but ill pay you cash, then make up some story why im paying you less than what you wanted haha, but its all i have a bunch of 1 dollar bills. i flipped a hd once.. the dude always had an excuse his wife had the car etc. i hated that guy lol i turned him away after being nice once. remember to entertain the lowballers.. sometimes its good to laugh at them.

The promotion should start in about 20 minutes, PT

ETA: Should be live now at 3:02 ET/ 2:02 CT, which would be 12:02 PT.

Yup. Just ended the previous listing (got charged $0.50 but oh well) and re-listed the item and had no insertion fee. Should be good to go now.

I sold a Microsoft points card a couple of weeks ago and the guy is now saying the code did not work, after he asked to have it emailed to him. After he filed an item not received case, I bought a shipping label and will have the card sent to him within the next few days.

Am I in the clear or will eBay side with him after the inevitable item not as described case.
Note: I have sold several other cards within the same time period without any problems. But this buyer does have decent (100+) feedback.
