During the promotion period, list and sell for no eBay fees. May be targeted.
Full terms and conditions - https://sellercentre.ebay.com.au/promo/5802
I’m gonna take a wild guess and say this is targeted?
Unfortunately, this promotional offer is by invitation only.
Worked for me. Tha ks
worked for my new account (again). Still doesn't work for old ebay account
I dont know why I click into these deals. They are always targeted and my account never gets the invite.
I will wait till these coats are dust before I pay your standard fees ebay.
Can I list something random for free and sell it to “myself” on another account, and pay by eBay gift cards?
Are there any fees that I’m unaware of?
will there be paypal fee if you pay with eBay gift cards?
Yeah pretty sure you still get nailed by PayPal… ;(
That’s abusing the system. Don’t do it you’ll ruin it for everyone.
Ok. I won’t do that.
What about if I get a friend to buy something off me with her ebay gift cards. What fees will be incurred in the process?
Will there (why?) be PayPal fees as I’m not paying my paypal but ebay gift cards.
have you ever been selling on ebay? how are you going to receive the money? AFAIK you can only use a coupon if the seller accepts paypal as the payment method.
also, you need to provide shipping proof, etc. if they request it from you otherwise the money will be put on hold until you can prove you've actually sold the item.
@r0xz: Nope. Never sold before. Sure, can provide shipping proof by sending the item via Aust post. Thanks for the heads up.
@r0xz: Nope, only holds for 21 days
I’ve done it (once) and it worked fine. PayPal put a 60 day hold on your earnings due to never selling before (new eBay account) and it goes through PayPal because that’s what eBay pay you through for online payments. Regardless of the payment method.
@stickyfingers: Thanks. Did you cop any fees? If so, how much were they?
@jecec: Just the PayPal ones. 2.6% + 0.30c
@stickyfingers: If the fees is only 2.6%+30 cents, and you can get the gift card with 5-15% discount (if you are lucky) then technically you can profit from this provided the "seller" only listed during $1 or $0 final fees promotion?
or am I wrong?
@h4zey: That’s right. You can also stack with 5-10% off site wide.
Cheers OP :)
If listed between 4-7 Jan do the items have to be sold in that period as well?
Usually if you're listing in that period then you're ok to sell anytime after.
As long as you select ‘good till canceled or sold’
If you select 7 day period and renew the ad, the deal no longer applies
The answer is in the terms and conditions and the same for all these promotions.
I got the invitational email to one of my email accounts. So I clicked on the hyperlink and was taken to the take up offer page. When I clicked to accept the offer I received, “Unfortunately, you can no longer sign up to this promotional offer because it has expired”. Jumped on eBay chat to see if it could be resolved, but that was 17 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. Sigh…
Most likely targeted at people buying too much. Not that I would know… cough
no. I have an account with 150+ rating and never had these deals. Created a special account to sell stuff and now can accept these offers (with 0 history of buying/selling). Just create another account and try again in 2 weeks - you don't lose anything )
Got this offer 2 weeks ago, and now again.(years old main account that buys and sells regularly) although I have nothing planned to sell this time..
Thanks op. Now I can relist my 400 items.
Is accepting payment via PayPal mandatory ?
I dont see PayPal listed as a requirement - however when I tried to list a TV for sale a few days ago, under a different "pay no final fee" promo, it let me create the auction (including a Buy Now price) but kept erroring when I tried to submit it, saying I have to accept PayPal.
Since the TV listing will be pick up only (its a BIG TV in box), I do not want to include PayPal as a payment method (prefer cash).
eBay have advised me in the past NOT to accept payment via PayPal unless the item is being sent via tracked courier (eg Australia Post) as there is no "Seller Protection" if the item is picked up by the buyer (no proof I provided the goods to the buyer).
Same issue selling my fridge, I just ticked the Paypal box and on the listing description in bold, underlined wording, stated cash on pickup only
On previous deals like this, I seem to get charged Ebay fee's on the freight component, so it seems offering the item with free freight (and building that into the price), is the way to go?
You shouldn't have been. They screw up alot.
Ok so I clicked on the link and clicked accept and it said I already accepted it, then clicked on start selling and listed my items. I guess it worked?
