While feeBay is raising fees and eliminating payment methods they don't get commission on, our own Trading Post is trying to get into the online auction game. In addition to the deal mentioned on http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/4719 regarding free listings until 30/09/2008, they also have a staff, family and friends special until 30/06/2008 as mentioned by insedertrader on the same page.
With this discount you do not pay any listing or success fees* and can get $4.40 worth of enhancements for your listing for free*. You'll have to be patient with the site though, clear your cookies and disable cookie blockers, save all the information in another file before submitting and did I mention that you need to be patient? Create an account (might need a credit card to sell, similar as eBay) and follow these steps:
1 Visit tradingpost.com.au and click on the ‘Sell’ tab
2 Follow the steps to list your item for Auction
3 Under this offer you may select the following ad features for free:
5 make sure to type in STAFF08 and clicking "Apply" button before submitting the information
It will still say on the page that you have to pay the success fee, though using the discount code that shouldn't be the case. However, I am just a messenger and haven't tested it, I can only pass on the information given, but since it's free, you can't or rather shouldn't complain ;)
*Basic auction listing plus Short Description, Bold Title and Yellow Highlight are free (this offer does not include Priority Positioning or Hot Deals, charges apply). No success fee. The selected free enhancements and no success fee are only available in conjunction with this promotion. Offer ends 30/06/2008 and applies to standard auction listings (including ad enhancements). Excludes Priority and Feature listings.
