0% Variable FVF on 3 New Listings (Existing Sellers until 31/10, $25 Cap) or 5 New Listings (New/Return Seller) @ eBay Australia

2900

It's back! eBay seller fee promos for October 2023 for existing sellers, or until December for new or reactivated sellers.

There's a chance new or reactivated sellers can double up and take advantage of both promotions if they activate both at the same time, adding up to 8x $0 FVF listings.

No eBay Plus required it seems.

Enjoy :)

  • Wonder what people are going to complain about this time.

    • +1

      They will say something again and every time.

      So no fees for selling 3 items at all?

      • +4

        If you accept the offer when its active, yep.

        • What is the cap then?

          • @sqheaven: $25 per

            • @bargainhunterjacob: I mean to ask, if it's totally free then why is there a cap?

              • @sqheaven: I don't get what you mean by "totally free"

                If you're talking a bout how the person said "So no fees for selling 3 items at all?" and my response "yep", the original deal listed and the current one were different.

        • so what's the max cost item for $25 cap?

    • +1

      How about the fact that I just tried joining up and it said sellers have to give them their drivers license or passport? Which will of course be leaked and then cause huge numbers of people grief. But hey, wouldn't wanna criticise a company - that might cause the leather polish in your digestive system to clear out.

      • +6

        oh no…not a security measure that prevents scammers from just making accounts without needing to provide ID.
        And has been a thing for several years.

        As for it getting leaked, lol @ that, because the only time my license was ever leaked was due to RMS NSW…the place you get the damn license from https://privacyaustralia.net/drivers-licenses-exposed-nsw-da…

        • To be fair it seems that wasn’t anything to do with RMS, but a 3rd party who had an unsecured S3 bucket.

          • @zubzub: “Most likely – part of NSW RMS infrastructure (Road and Maritime, New South Wales, Australia). Secured now.”

            It most definitely was RMS, because I had a relatively new license at the time that had not been uploaded anywhere by me.

            • @bargainhunterjacob: New license as in first ever or just renewed?

              You could be right. I’m not saying I would trust the government just because they said it was a third party. But the leak itself being down to an unsecured bucket does sound more like something a third party would do.

              • @zubzub: It was a new license, not a renewal.
                I've been in at least three government service related hacks/leaks since 2020, RMS, NSW health (hospital history) and another that I can't recall, but I have the letter for stashed away somewhere.

                • +1

                  @bargainhunterjacob: Damn! Seems like it’s unavoidable. I got the lucky trifecta of Optus, Medibank/AHM and Latitude. It has to tighten up moving forward but I think everyone in our generation has to just accept at least some of our details were leaked one way or another.

    • Activation Link: TBA

    • +1

      The fact I would've unlisted some of the expensive items I sold over the last 2 days and relisted them next month. :P

      I still got this month's $25 fee discount of course, but it pales compared to what I would've saved here.

      I'll live though, it's not the end of the world.

  • +8

    until they change it last minute…..

    • +8

      Not sure why negged, they actually did have the great deal last year then just changed it with a couple hours notice

      • eBay interns: "oops, I did it again…"

  • +2

    I've been selling high value items during these promos. Every promo I've sold all 3 items during the promo period.

    Now when I want to accept the promo I get this:

    You aren't eligible for this promotional offer because your seller standing
    is Below Standard.

    • Just make a new account get 5 instead of 3 free listings.

    • whats your feedback like to go below standard as a seller? (positive:negative ratio). Beyond the feedback as an initial indicator, seller rating is affected by 4 major metrics : Transaction defect rate, late shipment rate, cases closed without seller resolution, and return rate. Would be good to know these numbers if you think you have been allocated the wrong seller level as a baseline to begin rectifying the issue, otherwise if you are indeed a "below standard" seller you'll need to deal with customer support (if you have solid reasoning and can make a good case) or just try to improve on the metrics.

      In my case, I have 0% on all metrics and am "Above standard", im sure most people are similar to mine as a Seller tbh, unless you get unlucky and have to deal with bad buyers which can also be the case.

      My experience: Similar to you, I also sell high value items but I package them very well, padding, bubble wrap, gap filler, the works, and buyers tend to send positive reviews as they appreciate the effort. I assume they would send me negative reviews or compensation claims if they received their items damaged, or even if the box containing the product was damaged. Just small stuff like this can destroy your rating and impact the seller metrics if you show lack of care and dont reach a resolution with the buyer, as the buyer has spent a lot and trusted you as a seller, eventually it compounds and ebay punishes sellers for it.

      • +1

        Mine is 100% positive feedback, 120 sold items.

        • would definitely raise a case with Live support on ebay, you got a good history on the surface level alone. Seller metric wise thats only something that you can see in the seller dashboard but at 100% positive feedback somethings off with the automated ebay seller metric system. Feel free to let us know their reason whether it is a poor automated seller metric system or otherwise.

          I highly doubt they would want to exclude genuinely good sellers from their promos, would be very bad rep for Ebay.

        • Have you cancelled a lot of sold items or took a while sending items out?

    • This seems odd. Are you telling us the full story here without selectively leaving any information out?

      An eBay seller's standard can fall below average for a number of reasons, including,

      • Late shipments
      • Items not as described
      • High return rate
      • Low DSR (Detailed Seller Ratings)
      • Negative feedback from buyers
      • Policy violations
      • Cancelled orders
      • Low sales volume
  • +6

    I clicked Go To Deal and accepted the offer, but it still says "Up to $25 off Variable Fees on Eligible Listings* Start date * End date
    Max 3 sales. Items must be listed before 31 October. New listings only. *"
    What is going on…

    • +1

      Yeah I clicked it a minute ago and got the same thing.

      You've accepted the offer "Up to $25 off Variable Fees on Eligible Listings*"

      Start date 01/10/2023 12:00:00 AM
      End date 31/10/2023 11:59:59 PM

      • +2

        Let's have another try on 1-Oct, assuming this is due to the current promo hasn't ended yet.

        • will it let us if we have already accepted it lol

          • +1

            @Bowchkawowow: It'll be a different activation link than what is there currently.
            It's just ebay not updating stuff properly before the promotion goes live.

        • I mean, no.

          I remember for a fact that in some of the prior months (because this promotion has been running monthly since late last year) eBay made the activation link available before it started, and it worked just fine.

          If the activation link is available, it's not unreasonable to assume that it should work.

    • +5

      eBay as usual. They always screw up their promos. They’ll have to fix it up lol.

      T&Cs say otherwise as per this deal.

      Usually you can’t accept the promo until after the start date.

      • -1

        eBay reserves the right to cancel or change the Promotion at any time. they could just change it before 1st oct

      • Hope so. Regardless though, thanks OP as always for chasing the details on the monthly offer. You're doing god's work.

    • -3

      ha i get down voted by some numptys and then you post this … good work numptys…

    • got the same, hopefully accepting that deal doesn't keep from accepting the 0% final value deal.

    • well that sucks, I'm stuck on the $25 off deal and can't get the $0 one.

      • +1

        Yeah wtf, why is it 25 off not free as advertised. Clicked it too early on the 1st as well

        • +1

          The links been updated to say it's capped at $25 so looks like either deal is the same.

  • Dammit, I just listed a phone! Any idea if this promo will apply to listings created before the start date, if sold during the promo period?

    • +2

      No

      • Take down and relist?

        • +5

          You cannot relist it. You will have to accept the promo after 1st October, and then make a new listing or press “sell similar” on an expired or current listing to get 0% fees.

          • +1

            @I Smell Pennies: Copy that, might give that a go if the item doesn't sell between now and then. Especially if it ends up being targeted, don't want to miss out on the current $25 off fees promo I have applied.

          • @I Smell Pennies: Yes this caught me last month in Sep under eBay plus. You have to delete the listing that didn't get sold. Create brand new one with same content else doesn't count. I forgot about it was easy to click relist then it didn't get the offer for it still paid fees.

            EBay is sneaky

    • Just listed my phone too lol. Has too many bids on it right now so not really sure I want to take it down then wait again for this promo.

      • +1

        It's a bit of a dog move to cancel a listing with bids. Bids are essentially a contract to sell. I wouldn't push it that far.

        I always use Buy It Now listings with offers on, and I only ever use eBay if it's going to get a better return than Mobile Monster in the case of phones. Gumtree and Marketplace are full of idiots now.

    • +3

      Reminder clicking "relist" wont qualify your listing for this promo or automatic relist by eBay also wont qualify

      Instead from mobile app instead click "sell similiar" and then click "keep photos" to save the heafaches of creating a whole new listing

      👉😁👈

      • Thanks for the tip!

  • Nice thanks OP 👉😁👈

    Edit: so for anyone so don't need to be an eBay Plus member?

      • Actually OP states towards end of post no eBay plus requirements, hopefully true well will find out in 4x days

        • +1

          Looking at all previous 0% fees offers, they've always stated:

          “Eligible Sellers” means sellers registered on eBay.com.au who have an active eBay Plus membership.

          This time, it doesn't.

  • Thanks Op

  • +1

    You've accepted the offer "Up to $25 off Variable Fees on Eligible Listings*"

    • +1

      Try again in 4 days

  • +1

    Hectic, I can finally sell some of my 20+ Dreamcasts.

    • You will save fees on 3.

      • +3

        unless he sells them in groups of 6-7 ;)

      • +1

        Perfect. I don't need to sell them, but I should. So selling 3 won't hurt.

  • Should the listing be posted in October or can it end in October (as is can I list a 7 day auction now)?
    Edit: Read the rules and this is for listings posted on or after Oct 1.

  • +4

    Be aware that if you are new or newish seller, eBay will hold your sales proceed for a month.

    • Yeah even after buyer confirms that they've received it and are happy with it.

  • must be targeted offer. Mine is
    You've accepted the offer :
    Up to $25 off Variable Fees on Eligible

    • It's not started yet. The one you've accepted should expire 1st October.

  • Alright, time to part one of my GM lenses.

  • Not working for me. Looks like broken link

    • ebay.com.au is down I guess

  • Looks like last months variable fees up to $25 failed!

  • +3

    Thanks for posting these offers. I'm a long term eBay seller and eBay Plus user, but I never receive these offers from eBay. They're not on my dashboard either, but do work when activated.

  • +2

    Happy days

  • Can someone help a guy out, I currently had 30 items on Ebay. if I list 3 more then are those part of the promo or is it any of the 33 items I have for sale that comply with the offer?

    • +1

      You need to list new items, or click sell similar from another listing (not relist).

      • Thanks for your quick reply, so 3 new listings after I wait for the new promo to land and list after October 1st. What if I list 20 items will it be the first 3 that get sold?

        • @gimmeakebab

          What if I list 20 items will it be the first 3 that get sold?

          This is correct.

  • +1

    Love all the ppl accepting the offer before its even October and crying they got the September offer 🤣🤣 IN 4 DAYS in the header. This is like going why is a promo code not working before the promo begins 🤣.

    ADHD is strong in these ozbargainers.

    • No, it's not. It's called being prepared and getting ahead.

      Glad we've got people from the Cult of Outrage on ozbargain too though.

      • -1

        Lmfao youre not getting anywhere 🤣 you can be prepared by reading the post recording in your brain when the deal starts and then getting ahead by staying up from 11:59 sat night to sunday morning if you really wanted to "get ahead" although this isnt a limited slots/stock thing 🤣 so just activate it once its live. Stupidest sheet ive ever heard prepared my ass more like prepared to ask stupid questions why the deal not work 🤣. Was waiting for a bite 🎣

  • +1

    I just sold an item for 3k! F***!
    But… the seller hasnt paid so maybe they'll back out and I can list again.

    Good to see ebay finally bring it back
    Thanks for sharing

    • Explain to them and offer them a slight discount. E.g. 3% if they buy it in a few days time

  • Thanks for this!

    Confused with the 2 offers though - can anyone explain?

  • Thanks OP.

    Fraudbook was fun for a while but so many timewasters and lowballers.

    I'm going back on eBay.

    • Yeah it's crazy as soon as I list something within 30 mins lowballers and time wasters plus scammers with payid start

  • After accepting the offer that clearly states 0% variable fees on 3 listings, it seems I have in fact accepted $25 fees. Starting 01/10-31/10.
    Who else had this issue? Very suspicious behaviour from eBay.

    • +2

      It's already been answered in the comments by OP.
      eBay are often lazy and copy paste stuff. It'll be updated with a new activation link at some point when the offer goes live.
      Pretty sure the activation links haven't been live prior to the promo start date in a long time.

      • not working, Up to $25 off Variable Fees on Eligible Listings*

        • +1

          Yeah I Smell Pennies and I just figured out its the $25 off variable fees.
          They're going to update the post soon.

  • Good deal as I just cancelled my eBay plus a week ago got some items to sell

  • +1

    I was worried the $25 off final value fee would be the norm. Glad to see this offer return

    • +1

      Spoke too soon, ofc they change the deal and cap it at $25

  • +2

    I think Ebay did this to mitigate all the Iphone clear out before the release lol.

  • You've already accepted the offer "Up to $25 off Variable Fees on Eligible Listings*"

    Clicked it too early….

    • Try again on the 1st

  • You've accepted the offer :
    Up to $25 off Variable Fees on Eligible Listings*

    Hmm maybe shouldn't have clicked it
    (Was on the 1st btw)
