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.

2/14 Update: Appears to be a bait and switch trick by eBay. eBay made the message containing the offer "disappear" from our inboxes. Listings on Mobile now say there will be a final value fee if your item sells.
Above is incorrect. eBay promotional messages like this tend to always self-destruct after expiring. Listing on mobile always says there will be a Final Value Fee, as covered by T&C:

In case you didn't get this email just login to your account in the ebay app on smartphone and you'll see this offer there

Single item listing using auction-style, auction-style w/ buy it now, fixed price listing only.

Fixed price listings with 30-day duration or good til canceled are NOT ELIGIBLE

Remember, item must be listed using the ebay app for ios or android or Windows Phone

Question can i edit my listing on my pc once i put it thru the mobile app? or is that too risky?
Yes you can do that. All eBay looks at, is to see whether it was posted using a mobile device. Just make sure when editing it, you leave the part at the bottom that says Posted using eBay Mobile

I sold a $1900 camera last time this came around and of course the first winner of the auction was some punk who didn't pay. After a couple of hours with customer service I was semi-confident they would allow me to relist and get the same promotion and they actually came through, though the selling price was almost $100 less.

And to chime in on some of the topics within this thread, I believe eBay is an excellent marketplace, especially when you want to reach a global audience. However, the fees are a little too high considering they have the worst customer service I have ever experienced. If NO customer service meant lower fees, I'd take it. The feedback system has become a joke as well and they don't have any way to respond when established sellers report obvious fraudulent buyers to them.

And while some people have come to the defense of paypal on this thread, I think PayPal is a disaster and I am currently compiling evidence to enter arbitration with them on their negligence concering $4,000 worth of fraudulent chargebacks made in 30 transactions over 60 days with a single buyer (in Argentina). I even found a website registered to my buyer where the same goods were being sold. I lost every one of the chargebacks. They plaster all over their site how they have dedicated chargeback specialists committed to helping sellers and it is a complete farce, hence my case with them. And yes I have have confirmed shipping for some of the orders (but paypal does not offer seller protection on goods sold to people in Argentina). Oh and Paypal instituted a forced arbitration clause into their user agreement so it is the only recourse I have. So Paypal requires a subpoena to access the financial information but you need a court case to have a court issue a subpoena. Arbitration is not a court case and therefore I cannot get a court to issue a subpoena. So who knows if I can get the arbitrator to subpoena the records but I sure hope so. What is unbelievable is just how little I can find online about any one else's experience with arbitration with PayPal. I'm guessing that means a lot of people just bend over and take it. I pay Paypal $300-$400 per month going back 3 years but it certainly doesn't buy me any advocates in serious fraud cases. That's my rant, wish me luck getting my $4K back. If nothing else Paypal will owe the arbitrator a couple thousand bucks. That is the end of my rant. If anyone has experience in arbitration with paypal, I'd love to hear how it went.

That is b/c the arbitration clause is a relatively new addition to the UA. It seems that as long-standing Paypal users, we had up until Dec 1st, 2012 to opt-out. Read HERE [businessinsider.com] & HERE [businessinsider.com]. I was totally unaware of this addition to the UA; I would have opted-out for sure had I known myself.

Worked for me! At first I created a draft on my computer and finished it from my phone. No go. I cancelled that listing, did a basic one from my phone w/ one pic, then completed it online. Bingo! $0.00 listing fee and $0.00 final value fee. This saved me $30 on an iPhone I sold. Perfect timing!

no. You only have to list it by that time I believe. See T&C.
