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”).

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.

you guys think eBay is bad... i think selling stuff on Amazon is worse. their fees are exhorbitant and buyers will leave you negative feedback and kill your feedback % even though you did everything correctly. and unless you pay for the premium account, you can't even list in certain categories.
I think Amazon fees are less on some items when you add in paypal fees which there is no way around it. Also listing item on Amazon all the fees and final value are up front vs you have to do multiple calculation to between insertion fees, final value, shipping, paypal to see if you're even breaking even. Have not had any buyer issues, but both ebay/amazon have issues with that.

For promos like these I always do a buy-it-now item and check the box for "immediate payment via paypal". That way, no successful checkout means no purchase. I just make sure I list an item that I know will sell within the promo period.

Later,

i think eBay should require ALL buyers to pay immediately instead of requiring sellers to upgrade to a premier or business paypal account in order to enable that feature.

Oh great, this is f'ing great. I hope I don't get screwed. I just checked the "All Selling" -> Listing Offers section and noticed I do not have that "Free Mobile Listing" offer showing up there at ALL.

I hope I didn't mess up for using the iOS iPad Version to do this. I still have the original message, even forwarded it to my email account.

Guess I'll post in an hour+ once my listing ends to see what happens..

Well auction ended, still no FvF being shown. Lol I've sold for about 5 years now on eBay and I still can't remember.. does eBay charge you the FvF immediately after auction ends or after buyer pays?

It's been 10 minutes since my auction ended and still no new/pending charges.

just checked mine and it isn't there anymore either.
I say anymore because I'm absolutely positive it was there 3 days ago when I first checked.

Ditto, mine not there anymore either. Think as long as we save our initial email we'll be okay. Ebay did screw me over on something like this once before, and I had to call.

not too sure why people is bashing amazon/ebay/paypal.
roughly 10% commission is not that bad for access to buyers across the US (or globe)
commission rate is not random, they figure this stuff out. if commission is lower, then neither buyer nor seller would be protected from potential fraud.
I know people will say "They only protect the buyer and screw the seller". But if you read their seller protection terms, its clear if you don't follow their rules then you only leave yourself vulnerable even if you "think" you did everything right.

For popular electronics (ipods, cameras, gaming consoles, earphones etc.) generally best to go with amazon 8% fee

for unique/rare items, laptops/desktops, broken electronics, collectibles, etc. generally best to go with ebay 12.9% fee for auction, less for buy it now.

ebay and amazon amazon combined, I have sold maybe 1700 items over the past 27 months?
few bumps on the road, but never once was it not solved to both the buyer and seller's satisfaction.

hint: don't give in to obvious scammer, but when buyers is genuinely concerned, have a problem, want to return or what not, you want to work with them until they are also satisfied even if you are 100% right in the first place.
if customer wants a $15 refund because of whatever, you negotiate with them, don't right out tell them NO. poor feedback is not worth few dollars saved.

always accept returns within reasonable time frame. If buyer's fault, they pay for shipping both ways. if seller's fault, you pay for shipping both ways. if you can sell it in the same condition, do not charge restocking fee or that ticks off the buyer.
if its just buyer's remorse and return condition difers then sent, then you should only charge restocking fee equal to the differences between market value and paid value.

also protect yourself against potential losses
for buyers less then 30 feedbacks on ebay, I add signature confirmation to purchases over $100
everyone else I add signature confirmation to purchases over $200 (ebay rules)

for amazon.
I add signature confirmation to people living in apt, sending to business address, or purchases over $250
