Where is it?

Who is eligible?

Saturday 10 October from 00:00:01 until Thursday 15 October 2015 23:59:59 local UK time.

Only listings which start during the promotion period are eligible. Please refer to “How do I get the promotional rate?” for more details.

How do I get the promotional rate?

  • The promotion is valid for the first 40 listings only which go live during the promotion period (or were previously scheduled to go live during the promotion period) on using the auction-style, auction-style with Buy it now option, or fixed price formats, in an eligible category.
  • Only sellers whose accounts meet eBay’s minimum seller performance standards are eligible. Please sign in to My eBay and view your Seller Dashboard to verify whether your account is currently meeting the standards. The Seller dashboard is available to all sellers. The detailed rating section is available to sellers who've received 5 or more detailed seller ratings (DSRs). Find out more about eBay’s seller performance standards.
  • If you registered after 15 March 2011 or haven’t listed any items for a while, you may have a listing allowance of 10 items per month or of £650 per month, whichever is reached first. You may be able to increase this allowance by providing additional verification.
  • An eligible item previously scheduled to go live during the promotional period will qualify for the promotion only if you have opted in to the promotion before the listing starts.
  • If an item qualifies for the promotion and when the item sells, the invoice will indicate the 50% final value fee discount. Please note: if your item does not sell the first time and if you relist it after the promotional period or if it is automatically relisted, standard final value fees will be charged according to the eBay fees policy when the relisted item sells. 
  • If an item that is eligible for the promotion had previously closed without a successful sale and is re-listed manually during the promotion period, it will form a part of the 40 listings limit of the promotion. You will not receive a refund of your original insertion fee if the item sells.
  • For items listed in 2 or more categories, only the insertion fee for the first category is included. Standard insertion fees will be charged for listing the same item for each additional category, according to the eBay fees policy.
  • Free listings in this promotion do not count towards your monthly 20 free listings
