Sounds good, where do I find the Promotion and how do I sign up?
You can take part in the promotion on eBay.co.uk. Only private sellers registered for managed payments are eligible for this promotion. If you have already registered to managed payments, you have received an email with the RSVP link to the offer. If you have not registered to managed payments, we sent you an email with a link to invite you to find out more on how to register to managed payments and the RSVP link you need to click to take part in the promotion, if you opt to. You must opt in to the promotion by clicking on this link before any of your 100 listings start.
Anything else I need to know?
eBay charge an FVF when your item(s) sell(s). The FVF charged per order consists of: (i) a variable portion (“Variable Portion FVF”) which is calculated as a percentage of the Total Sale Amount; and (ii) a fixed portion (“Fixed Portion FVF”) for example 30p. The Total Sale Amount means the amount the buyer pays for an order, including the item price, postage, taxes and any other applicable fees.
The FVF Discount in this promotion applies to the Variable Portion FVF (net of any other discounts) in respect of the eligible items’ Total Sale Amounts. For example, if you would have been charged 12.80% on the Total Sales Amount, the 50% FVF discount will reduce this to 6.40%. The Fixed Portion FVF (e.g. 30p) will not be discounted. Therefore, the fixed charge of 30p per order will still apply.
You won't pay an insertion fee for each of the 100 listings. Listing upgrade fees will still apply and will be charged according to the eBay fees policy.
You may also be subject to International fees.
