Get Five FREE eBay Listings with special promotion

June 17th, 2009 by Skip McGrath

Any eBay seller can get 5 free listings each month by using the eBay Sell Your Item form

Here are the details:

Regardless of your start price, your first 5 Auction-style listings will have NO Insertion Fees when you list with eBay’s Sell Your Item form or Simple listing form.

The Final Value Fee for these 5 listings with $0.00 Insertion Fees will be 8.75% of the sales price or $20, whichever is lower. Any additional items sold during the same 30-day period will have the same Insertion Fees and Final Value Fees as they do today.

Choose the option that works best for you, based on how you list:

  • eBay’s Sell Your Item form or Simple listing form – If you’re currently using one of these forms, you can either take advantage of the 5 free Insertion Fees every 30 days, or opt out by listing your items via an eBay tool or third-party listing solution.
  • eBay tool or third-party listing solution – If you’re currently using one of these tools, you can either take advantage of this new pricing structure by listing your first 5 Auction-style listings every 30 days through eBay’s Sell Your Item form or Simple listing form, or continue with your current practices at the current pricing.

The 5 listings with $0.00 Insertion Fees are especially helpful if you don’t sell a high volume, but offer the kind of unique and hard-to-find inventory buyers expect to find on eBay. I am also using it to list expensive items with a high starting price.  For example, I usually use Vendio or InkFrog to launch my listings, but once each month, I go into the eBay sell your item form and list five of my firepit barbeque grills at $227 each. Not only do I save the listing fee, the final value fee is also lower than on a regular sale.

I think eBay only offers that to new sellers now, but am not sure.
