    Thanks mate for sharing. Typo - Spend $800 or more and save $8?

    These days all these eBay codes have way too many t&c's. Can not apply to any of 20 items in the cart.

    •  

      I have been watching an item worth $320 for about a month now.
      Item suddenly jumped up to $340 a few hours before this promo started :(

    Who ever is the marketing team at eBay need to go back to school or look at another field.

    Who honestly thinks to make a 10% off coupon code, then make this code a few hours later ?

      eBay is a rather succesful company, so there's probably some method to their madness.

      Maybe they're not both aimed at the same people. We just so happen to see them both reported next to each other on a bargains website.

        From reports, Amazon has taken a large chunk of their market share

        I'm fully aware of that, but what's the point of having 2 codes that are virtually the same, aimed at different people. Confusing for the regular consumer. Not us OzB'ers of course.

        They might be a successful company but I dont spend no where near as much on there as I used to because most things are over priced compared to other retail stores and websites.

            I didnt say for them to close down, but if they actually drop there fees then their sellers would drop their prices and they all would get a lot more sales.

              I suspect if eBay dropped their fees, the majority of sellers would not change their prices and just pocket the extra money. :)

          If they keep doing this they will lose market share. Companies such as Amazon and other places will slowly chip away at eBay’s market. EBay is becoming complacent.

          No different to how google chipped away at yahoo and instagram and twitter chipped away at face book and facebook chipped away at myspace.

          Nothing is constant in this disruptive world and it would be fallacy to think that eBay will remain at the top of the tree in Australia forever. They are not doing enough to retain their market.

          In the 70s and 80s you would have been laughed at if you said that Myer David Jones Daimaru (remember them?) Dimmeys, Forges, and Coles Department stores (yes Coles was once more than just a supermarket) would end up being extinct (Coles department stores) or a mere shadow of their former selves.

            I don't see Amazon Australia as a competitor to eBay with their current offering. Amazon do not have auctions, have a very limited range of products, and some items are a lot more expensive than eBay.

            Have a look at all the active eBay deals.
            The P30 Pro is $1147 on eBay, $1199 on Amazon.
            The 4TB Seagate drive is $135.20 on eBay, $226 on Amazon for the exact same model.
            The Tefal XL air fryer is $119 on eBay, it's not available on Amazon.
            The Tefal Power Grill is $94.40 on eBay, it's $169 on Amazon.

              @eug: Give it time. Did you know that Gumtree nearly sent eBay under until eBay bought out Gumtree? Gumtree has no auctions. You don’t need auctions to rule a market. The pricing is not always controlled by Amazon.com.au. Some of the sellers will charge higher prices as Amazon is not the supplier.

              Amazon is much bigger than eBay in the States and the UK. And that said Alibaba is bigger than Amazon and eBay combined. Australia is a small fish for these companies.

              Amazon actually has a larger range than eBay overseas. However due to this Government’s stupidity of charging GST on low value purchases it put a spanner in the works for Amazon. Basically any USA Amazon seller apart from Amazon as the seller is not able to send to Australia.

              I used to be able to buy from almost any seller on Amazon.

                @ibuy:

                Did you know that Gumtree nearly sent eBay under until eBay bought out Gumtree?

                Hmm, how so? Gumtree had been undergoing years of losses since it was established in 2000 before eBay, who had a net income of over US$1 billion in 2005, bought them.

                To me they're for very different markets. You wouldn't sell your old fridge on eBay but you'd put it on gumtree. You wouldn't sell your expensive DSLR camera on Gumtree but you would sell it on eBay, if you want to filter out time-wasters and people who offer half the asking price.

                Gumtree has no auctions. You don’t need auctions to rule a market.

                You were saying Amazon will chip away at eBay's market. I was saying they're not (exactly) the same as Amazon does not have auctions.

                Gumtree rules the local classifieds market - it's the place you go to to get bulky or lower-priced used goods. It's risky for more expensive non-local purchases as there are no protections in place.

                eBay rules the nationwide and worldwide auctions market, with a growing retail component. It lets you buy both new and used low and high-value items from almost anywhere in the world, with decent buyer protection.

                If we just look at new-item purchases, Amazon US would definitely be a competitor to eBay US. But as I mentioned earlier, with its current offerings, Amazon AU definitely isn't much of a competitor to eBay AU.

                However due to this Government’s stupidity of charging GST on low value purchases it put a spanner in the works for Amazon. Basically any USA Amazon seller apart from Amazon as the seller is not able to send to Australia.

                eBay had no problems implementing it, I'm sure Amazon just doesn't want to play ball with the government. It's hard to believe that Amazon's programmers are unable to handle sales tax.

                People here have been predicting eBay's fall for years, but until there is a real competitor around, they're just going to continue to grow regardless of what we think.

                  @eug: EBay bought out gumtree. They were losing market share and had to buy out Gumtree to stop the bleeding. They purchased gumtree and did not develop it any further to stop it from impacting eBay.

                  Amazon did not have an .au site thus implementing it over a US site with a multitude of state and federal taxes already in play would have been a nightmare. There was amazon.com, amazon.co.uk. Now there is amazon.com.au they can and implement GST on the .au site. They are also migrating many products from the USA site to the Australian site.

                  EBay has been moving towards Amazon’s model because the auctions market is not a large component of sales. Buy it now is much more efficient than an auction proceds because the sale takes a minimum of a day or two wheras internet sales that are buy it now satisfy a consumer’s need for instant gratification. Auctions don’t do that. EBay’s growth worldwide is slower than Amazon.

                  At present Amazon is still the new kid on the block, but discount what impact it will have on eBay over the long term.

                    What is your source on that?

                    Amazon did not have an .au site thus implementing it over a US site with a multitude of state and federal taxes already in play would have been a nightmare.

                    Amazon US has absolutely no problems selling you many items from their US store and collecting the GST. Why would it be impossible for them to do the same with third-party sellers? They are already able to collect GST and pay it to the government. Do you really think Amazon's programmers are unable to figure out how to collect GST for third-party sellers on their platform with their GST collection system that's already in place?

                    EBay’s growth worldwide is slower than Amazon.

                    Is that a surprise to anyone? The two stores sell different things. Amazon sells more items that you use every day while eBay carries more infrequently-purchased items.

                    In the US you would buy laundry detergent and toilet paper off Amazon, along with crayons, socks, potato chips, and coffee beans. eBay isn't the first place that comes to mind when you're thinking of those items.

                    You may be interested to read the following article

                    There is nothing particularly useful in that article, it's just a business reporter quoting one analyst saying Amazon is in it for the long haul.

                    The article says: "Amazon is very much in line with its plan, a two-year flag-planting strategy, during which there will be significant market impact."

                    We are two months away from the two-year mark since they launched. Would you say there has been a significant market impact here?

                    It then goes on to say:

                    Its most recent quarterly results, filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, also provide a clue about the massive losses it sustains in foreign markets. […] it suffered a total loss of $US1.5 billion ($2.2 billion) across all other countries where it set up a base, including Australia.

                    That doesn't look like they're doing very well outside of the US.

                    As I said earlier, with their current offering, they are not a competitor to eBay AU at all. Don't forget the part where I said "with their current offering". Amazon has to do a lot better if they want to compete against eBay here.

                    •  

                      @eug: Ebay/gumtree - if you had been following the press many years ago this is common knowledge. EBay purchased Gumtree and stopped development. If the trading post was a threat they would have purchased them as well.

                      When I bought from amazon.com this was prior to the introduction of the low value GST impost. Now many of my amazon purchases have to go via my USA address. There is no collection of GST by amazon on amazon.com with the exception of some books. It simply redirects you to amazon.com.au if the item is available from amazon.com.au - go try it. The only thing you can buy from amazon.com are some books which they collect GST. Other items such as clothes, no.

                      You can find regular household goods on both eBay and amazon. I have purchased everything from toothbrushes, candies, and other regular things on eBay. It’s more your mindset and beliefs that are blocking you from seeing what is available. There are lots of people buying chocolates even from eBay. Remember caramilk? That was only available on eBay through a multitude of small sellers. It was not on amazon.com.au.

                      Losses have no correlation to sales. You can sell heaps and lose money and sell little and lose money. Your comments relate to sales on amazon and eBay and not profitability. Stick to the topic. Companies such as uber, instagram, Xero, jd.com are the biggest or close to the biggest in their chosen markets yet they all lose money. It is sacrificing short to mid term profitability for long term gains. In the IT related industries there is a high burn rate of cash to gain market traction and hold it whilst competitors spring up against you. You may not realise that eBay may be “big in australia” but our market is tiny compared to usa, canada, europe and the uk. Assuming globalisation continues as it will, then Australia will follow the rest of the world and eBay will not be as big nor maintain its market.

                      Your comments regarding amazon in its current position is flawed. You’re locking in a position at the moment and saying how terrible it is and it will not catch up. However both eBay and Amazon are constantly evolving. They will never be the same beast as when they started. Ebay was not the best place to buy things when it started in Australia and it has taken 18’years to get to where it is. You’re bagging amazon after only two years. However their model is much more sophisticated. You need to understand the backbones of these businesses to truly appreciate how amazon is going to be a big threat to eBay. When eBay started it had few sellers because it charged for everything. It charged for pictures, relisting, adding a buy it now to auctions etc etc. it wasn’t a good place to sell. The most irritating thing now is that it charges it’s commissions on postage so eBay’s postage is not competitive and forces sellers to either absorb it or pass it onto buyers. If it keeps penalising sellers it will lose share as sellers will go to other platforms such as amazon or etsy or whomever starts up next. However with recent offerings to sellers such as free listings totally free of commissions eBay is running scared. This (which is irrelevant in this discussion) will affect eBay’s bottom line in Australia. It is giving away commissions in order to try and keep sellers.

                      EBay’s eBay plus is a joke as many ozbargainers have found out. Amazon’s prime is a big ticket offering for what you pay. It’s not only free shipping and discounts but also includes access to their tv channels music and more.

                      All companies are normally in a state of flux and changes will always be part of a business’ operations. To say amazon in its current format is uncompetitive is to not realise the full suite of offerings that amazon is implementing. Hence it may look like amazon is a loser against eBay in australia now however they have proven success in diverse markets from canada, uk and europe and eBay is forever changing and who is to say their changes will be the right changes that keeps their business alive?? Myspace went down against facebook and both eBay and amazon could go down over some future online website we are yet to see or recognise. I suggest you keep an open mind on these things and not blindly believe that eBay (or even amazon) will be the only big market players in the online retail space.

                      It will, as with most things take the market some time to realise the value proposition of amazon. Amazon has had teething problems no different to ebay when it started. Amazon’s warehousing which provides FBA to sellers took quite some time to get in place and is still a work in progress. In order to understand Amazon you need to know their back end and compare it to eBay’s back end.

                      In any case I do not for one minute think or believe that eBay and amazon are the only places that will dominate the market. The next big online retailer could be just a click away. It is really dependent on what customers want and how they want it, where, when and why. If the next big online retailer gets it right then both eBay and Amazon may be going down in flames. There will always be lots of people to try and take on the market. Some won’t succeed and some will with the right formula at the right time and right place.

                        @ibuy:

                        Ebay/gumtree - if you had been following the press many years ago this is common knowledge.

                        As you said, "where is your proof of this"?

                        You claimed that eBay was going bankrupt because of Gumtree, so eBay, a nearly-bankrupt company, bought Gumtree.

                        That was what I was refuting. eBay made a billion US dollars profit in the year they bought Gumtree, which was losing money. They saw Gumtree as a possible future threat so they bought them - not because Gumtree made eBay nearly go bankrupt as you claimed.

                        There is no collection of GST by amazon on amazon.com with the exception of some books. It simply redirects you to amazon.com.au if the item is available from amazon.com.au - go try it. The only thing you can buy from amazon.com are some books which they collect GST.

                        This is absolutely incorrect. Haven't you seen the tons of posts on OzBargain for deals from the Amazon US store? You do not get redirected to amazon.com.au. You are buying directly from Amazon.com who collect GST on your purchase. Go try it.

                        You’re locking in a position at the moment and saying how terrible it is and it will not catch up.

                        Once again, for some reason, you're refusing to read the part where I clearly said "with their current offering.", then made up the part where I supposedly said they will not catch up. Can you please point out the part where I said Amazon will not catch up?

                        EBay’s eBay plus is a joke as many ozbargainers have found out.

                        Do be careful of confirmation bias. To you, eBay Plus is a joke, so you will only read and remember comments from people who say it's a joke. There are many people who are happily enjoying eBay Plus, they just don't bother telling you, or you won't bother remembering it. It is also human nature to complain, so people who are happy with eBay Plus will not bother writing a forum post saying "eBay Plus works really well for me!" whereas those who don't think it's worth it will shout from the hills making sure everybody hears them in every deal post that's somewhat related.

                        Amazon’s prime is a big ticket offering for what you pay. It’s not only free shipping and discounts but also includes access to their tv channels music and more.

                        Yeah, Prime Video and Amazon Music sure are popular. ;)

                        Hence it may look like amazon is a loser against eBay in australia now however they have proven success in diverse markets from canada, uk and europe

                        If you consider US$2.2 billion in losses a proven success… OK then. :)

                        I suggest you keep an open mind on these things and not blindly believe that eBay (or even amazon) will be the only big market players in the online retail space.

                        eBay and Amazon are the only big players in the online retail space here. Can you name one other online retailer in Australia that is bigger? catchoftheday and kogan are trying, but how big do you think they are in relation to eBay and Amazon?

                        Do keep in mind that I never said they will always be the biggest. For some reason you made that part up in your mind and are assuming I said it.

                        The rest of your post is far too length and wordy to go through. This is the crux of my argument.

                        • Danstar said the marketing team at eBay need to go back to school or quit, because having two promo codes is a bad idea.

                        • I said eBay are quite successful so they probably know what they are doing, and the two codes may not be aimed at the same group of people. eBay never advertised both codes to everybody - they were just both posted here by an OzB member.

                        • You then said if eBay keep doing this (release two discount codes at the same time?), they will lose market share as companies like Amazon will slowly chip away at eBay's market.

                        • I said I don't see Amazon Australia as a competitor to eBay with their current offering because they do not have auctions, have a very limited range of products, and some items are a lot more expensive than eBay. I specifically said "their current offering" and gave three reasons, but you continually ignore the former and are fixated on the auctions part.

                        • You then claimed Gumtree nearly sent eBay under, until eBay bought Gumtree. I asked for a source, but none was given. I mentioned that eBay made a billion US dollars profit the year they bought Gumtree, which was losing money.

                        Everything went on a tangent then, so hopefully this will bring it back on track.

                      @eug: Here are some cold hard stats for you.

                      Auctions comprise a tiny part of eBay’s sales

                      https://www.ecommercebytes.com/C/letters/blog.pl?/pl/2017/12...

                      It quotes 88% from buy it now and 12% from auctions.

                      Your comments regarding eBay rules for. Auctions nationwide etc. where is your proof of this?

                        Can you name one other successful nationwide auctions website where the public can freely put things up for auction?

                        •  

                          @eug: You still don’t realise that auctions are a very small part of eBay’s business. 12% is not significant vs 88% buy it now

                          You were constantly fixated about auctions per the comments below

                          “…don't see Amazon Australia as a competitor to eBay with their current offering. Amazon do not have auctions,…”
                          .
                          “…You were saying Amazon will chip away at eBay's market. I was saying they're not (exactly) the same as Amazon does not have auctions.”

                          However as mentioned above Amazon does not need auctions and for eBay it is a small part of their sales. Auctions are inefficient sales mechanisms compared to buy it now.

                          And comments like the one below has no factual or statistical backing - just your experience

                          “To me they're for very different markets. You wouldn't sell your old fridge on eBay but you'd put it on gumtree. ”

                          However I have assisted many people sell their old tv, washing machine, fridge and furniture on eBay. There are lots of people using eBay for decluttering their homes.

                          With other sites there are many others as advised in this article. NOTE you said “where the public can freely put things up for auction” however this is incorrect. EBay is not free as it has fees associated with listings depending on how you list and fees when you sell. It swipes almost 11% of the item’s selling price and paypal up to 4/5% more. You end up losing around 16% or $16 for every $100.

                          https://www.finder.com.au/sites-like-ebay

                          So

                          Grays online, aliexpress, rakuten, etc are successful
                          Nationwide and allows anyone to list

                          With regard to GST it depends on who is selling the item. As I have said in my comments if it is a non Amazon.com third party seller then they can’t ship outside the States. Look for an item and try not to buy it from amazon as the seller but another seller. It does not work.

                          Try to buy this

                          https://www.amazon.com/Baleaf-Jacket-Mountain-Insulated-Snow...

                          It is from a third party seller. Not amazon as the seller even though it is on Amazon. Even though it says it is shippable to Australia when you reach checkout and quote an Australian address it will not work - it bans you from buying. I don’t think you have enough experience using amazon.com.

                          I think we end up agreeing to disagree. Amazon will continue its path. It’s current position is not yet complete unlike eBay that has been around for 18 years now. What people forget to see is that what was once great and mighty will not be that way in the future. As quoted Yahoo was once one of the best search engines, then google took over, facebook overtook myspace when everyone thought myspace was the winner. We live in an era similar to the industrial revolution however it is more like the technological revolution. To say Amazon.com.au is a poor alternative to eBay without properly investigating it in an Australian context is flawed. Yes you advised “currently” however that is no reason to say it won’t beat eBay or that eBay is great in Australia. It is for the most part now mediocre and isn’t cheap. There are lots of other places to source at prices cheaper than eBay. You just have to know where to look. And unfortunately I won’t reveal sites because it will end up being ozbargained and no longer a cheaper alternative to eBay.

                            @ibuy:

                            You still don’t realise that auctions are a very small part of eBay’s business.

                            Please point out where I said auctions were a large part of eBay's business.

                            You were constantly fixated about auctions per the comments below

                            You selectively quoted the part of my sentence that tries to prove your point, while ignoring the other 2/3rds. Your selective quote isn't even the crux of my statement. You're simply ignoring my whole sentence and fixating on one part which is not the point I was putting across.

                            And comments like the one below has no factual or statistical backing

                            Sorta like how you said Gumtree almost bankrupted eBay which is why eBay bought Gumtree - the same year eBay made over a billion US dollars profit? :)

                            Or the part where you said Amazon.com does not ship anything except for books to Australia?

                            NOTE you said “where the public can freely put things up for auction” however this is incorrect. EBay is not free

                            It looks like you misunderstood the meaning of the word "freely".
                            "Freely" does not mean "for zero cost".

                            You mention these sites - GraysOnline, AliExpress, Rakuten, and claim that anybody can list on it like eBay Australia. It seems like you're simply blissfully unaware and are just typing out names of websites?

                            GraysOnline does not allow you to simply sign up for an account and list your old camera for sale. You have to contact them first to sell your excess/slow moving stock, business assets, seconds, reconditioned goods, or liquidated inventory. Then they decide if they want to do business with you.

                            AliExpress is not open to anyone like eBay. You need to be a registered business. You will also be dealing with an overseas company so you will not have any local protection under ACL.

                            Rakuten is a Japanese online market. You simply cannot just sign up for an account and list your old laptop there, and neither will any Australians be searching Rakuten for a local used [anything] to buy.

                            So my question still stands. Can you name one other successful online auction website like eBay where just about anybody can sign up for an account and list items? Or do you concede that eBay does rule the nationwide (consumer) auctions market?

                            As I have said in my comments if it is a non Amazon.com third party seller then they can’t ship outside the States.

                            That is correct and I never refuted that, but that is not what I was replying to. This is what you said:

                            The only thing you can buy from amazon.com are some books which they collect GST.

                            That is incorrect. Evidently you did not click on the OzBargain link I supplied earlier. Click on that and you will notice that those items are not books.

                            Even if you were correct, you yourself admit that Amazon can collect GST. So the mechanism for collection is there, which makes your argument moot anyway. Amazon can collect GST which shows their programmers are capable of dealing with a tax, they just choose not to open that up to their third-party sellers.

                            I don’t think you have enough experience using amazon.com.

                            It is quite evident that you have not used amazon.com much. Click on that link above and see for yourself. Do pay attention to the fact that the items there are not books.

                            To say Amazon.com.au is a poor alternative to eBay without properly investigating it in an Australian context is flawed.

                            It is a poor alternative to ebay.com.au - mainly because they're focusing on different things right now. Amazon is great at some things, eBay is great at other things. You cannot fully replace one with the other right now - hence, they are poor alternatives for each other.

                            Yes you advised “currently” however that is no reason to say it won’t beat eBay or that eBay is great in Australia.

                            Sure. I never said Amazon will never catch up or beat eBay - I said that right now it is a poor alternative. They are going to have to improve their offerings to properly compete. Amazon clearly hasn't got the formula right for years, seeing at how large their losses are with their overseas operations.

                            I think we end up agreeing to disagree.

                            I don't think we disagree on the main point. You just assumed that I said Amazon will never change - which is wrong. With its current offerings, Amazon certainly isn't a viable alternative to eBay, so eBay is under little threat. If Amazon can change that, then they could certainly be seen as a large competitor. But looking at how Amazon is doing in the overseas market overall with their US$6.5 billion in losses from 2016-2018, it looks like they have quite a way to go.

                            Way back at the start you said companies like Amazon will chip away at eBay's market share because they're becoming complacent. You're assuming eBay will just sit around and do nothing while Amazon chips away at their market share. I'm quite certain eBay won't be taking it sitting down. Before the Amazon AU threat, we didn't often see large discounts on eBay. Now we do. Thank you, Amazon!

      I presume this works on everything as opposed to just 'eligible' items.

    In case you came here first, also see:

    I've almost given up on these "eligible items" sales - I can never find stuff I want that seems to be eligible (like many people I suspect).
    C'mon Ebay - if you want to stop driving frustrated people away from your website just make a site-wide discount.

  •  

    Does anyone know of a way to search for items with this eligible code?
    I'm about $10 shy of an $800 purchase with another item which is eligible, rather than getting $40 odd, i'd rather spend another $10 and get $80 off.
