 I'm confused I thought ebay always offered free listings now and just charged on final value fees? i thought you were allowed 100 free at least each month if not more no? i have stores so diff fee structures for me but i thought thats why they raised fvf's a while back because they took away listing fees.

The only way we'll find out if this is any kind of big deal to any of us is for someone to post here and say they have actually been paying ANY lisitng fees for the last 6 months to a year.

I think we'll find that no one has been.

eBay even sends out individual emails offering more than that. Some time ago there was a post on here showing eBay had sent an offer for 50,000 free listings. (I'll try to find it and post it here later). I do remember when I got one of those that there was a line in it about "by invitation only". 

I'm just waiting for them to come up with the next way to hold back some of our money when we make a sale !

In both May and June of 2012 eBay offered the free 50,000 listings.

Here's the link for the May, 2012 offer:

Apparently I hit the wall - just got billed an Insertion Fee on my last eBay Post.

Anyone know a way to get them to give the special no insertion fee?

How much was the insertion fee?

****

How many listings have you done in the last two weeks to one month?

How many feedback do you have?

What prices are you asking for your items?

How long have you been an eBay member?

*****

All those elements could well have an inpact on what fees you pay or don't pay.

How much was the insertion fee? $0.30

****

How many listings have you done in the last two weeks to one month? 
estimate:
120 or so in past 30 days
52 this month


How many feedback do you have?
230

What prices are you asking for your items?
$1 to $80

How long have you been an eBay member?
Over 10 years

Just wondering if there is a way to prompt the specials?

The fee is not that big of a deal on the bigger items - but have several smaller ones, Postcards, trading cards that I won't list with that fee.

I'll provide similar information and you can see if any of that might make a difference.

How many listings have I done in the last two weeks to one month? 
estimate:
about 15 to 20 a month with 10 or so selling each month.


How many feedback do I have?
1,000 plus

What prices am I asking for my items?
$10 to $500, average $40 to $75

How long have I been an eBay member?
Just under 10 years

So, there are some similiarities and some differences. You can decide if any of them make any difference.
and here's the simple answer to your original question.  Why not just call them and talk to a live person
and get the answer (maybe) from the source.

WOW - My simple - probably wrong assumption that there was no Actual Live Person to speak to.

I will try that.

Thanks

I'd better get busy....I wouldn't want to lose those 999,990 listings I normally wouldn't do in a month's time.  ;D

If these offers are any indication, I'd say eBay is starting to hurt for listings.

Well, I have not reached 1 million yet. But I still have three days to list.
I am up near 200 though.

Many of which I would not have otherwise listed. But I will take $5 a pop many times peppered in with $30-$100 sales.

I have most all of the listings scheduled to be over right before the deadline. That way those that have not sold can be relisted again for free.
