List-Sell, get $20 Promotion: Sucks.
« on: July 14, 2014, 12:32:34 PM »
I got an email promotion: List in next ten days get $10, if it sells get another $10.

I listed an item I've had problems selling for way low. Immediately sold.
Break down is it sold for $22.  $2.20 went to ebay > $0.98 to paypal > $13.20 to ship > paid $6 for it = a loss of $0.38.  But got $20 gift certificate which would bring profit up to where others are selling for...eventually.

Well, it's not a gift certificate.  Its a code that has to be used in the next seven days.  Now I have to go search around ebay for something that costs $20.  Figure I'll get printer ink or razors or something I'll eventually need.

The promotion did say the "certificate" had an expiration date but I didn't figure on 7 days.  That's BS.

I finally found an item that was $20.  Refilled ink for printer.
So with the $3-$4 they made off me, $3-4 they made off of seller.....they lost money. 

Won the battle!......tho, still losing the war.
