Free eBay Listings via Gumtree

Anyone know exactly how the 2 free listings on ebay (pushed from gumtree works)?

Suppose I push 5 listings from gumtree to ebay, do the first two that are pushed qualify for the non final value fee or is it simply the first two sold?

It gets even more complicated when you think about pushing listings close to the end of the month. If I push 3 listings on July 31 and 3 Listings on Aug 1, do I get 4 items with no final value fee? Or is it just the first two that are sold per calendar month.

Unfortunately, the live chat reps gave mixed answers about how it works. They don't have any tools to check whether an item qualifies. There's no self-service tools to check either.

I'm hoping someone here has first hand experience with it.

  • The service ebay offers far exceeds the fees

  • My experience
    1. It's the ones listed first, everything after that, regardless what order they sell, will incur fees.
    2. The limit renews every calendar month regardless of when during the month it is listed. So I could list 2 today and then 2 on the first of August and none will incur final value fee

  • I was told this promo shouldn't even exist!

  • I've used it on occasion but I'm trying to avoid paypal now.

    Best to screen shot the deal in case they forget and charge you std fees

      That doesn't really help for my questions, because the T&Cs in the deal are vague.

      I want to push >2 listings, but I'll adjust the price so that only 2 sell … wondering how that'll play out for the non final value fee promo.

  • Is the deal for auction only or buy it now listings too?

    Can you list an item of any value? $10,000?

      Both - auction and buy it now.

      Can you list an item of any value? $10,000?

      Cars tend to be a separate category on ebay/gumtree (not sure if the deal works on them). I'm not sure if there's a dollar value limit.

  • I reckon this is just a scam.

    I tried to repost one of my gumtree ads across and after going through the palaver, at the bottom it said I would be charged final value fees. It's a bag for sale at $35.

    I have endless argy bargy with Gumtree support and got nowhere. They just reply quoting the offer, nothing about why it doesn't work for me. I suspect they are now ignoring me since I keep going back and telling them to reply to the questions I asked, and not do cut and paste answers.

    What part of "answer the bloody question" don't these morons understand? Every interaction with 'service providers" has become a nightmare in Oz these days.

      The problem seems to be that level 1 support isn't intimately familiar with all the promotions and there's no escalation path beyond level 1 support.
