[eBay.ca] Sell for $1 Offer Returns June 23-24

It looks like this is becoming a monthly thing for eBay sellers! I was able to take advantage last month so glad it's back this weekend.

Selling Weekend is Returning! Our Sell for $1 offer returns this weekend (June 23-24), so prepare to list and save!

Please note: Sellers must activate the Promotion by selecting "Activate Offer" from within the invitation email, the Promotion landing page, or from within the Promotional Offers module within My eBay. Items listed prior to a seller activating the Promotion, or after the Promotion Period (including ‘Good til Cancelled’ auto-relists) will not be eligible for the Promotion.

What is the Promotion?

Sellers ("Sellers") who activate the offer, and pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein, list during the Promotion Period, will pay zero insertion fee and a final value fee of $1 per item for the first 5 listings created.("Promotion").

Eligible listings for the Promotion include auction-style, auction-style with the Buy It Now feature added, or fixed price formats.

Final value fees will still be applied to the total amount of the sale including the cost of the item, shipping, and any other fees a seller may charge—excluding any sales tax. However, the final value fee will be $1 per item sold (excluding taxes and shipping).

Please note: All existing selling limits on your account (as well as category and item limits) still apply. Listing fees may apply, depending on how many listings you have already created; learn more about seller fees, including the number of free listings per month, by viewing our everyday rate plan.

Who's eligible?

This Promotion is available to Canadian sellers who: (i) activated the Promotion; and (ii) meet eBay's minimum seller performance standards. Please sign in to My eBay and view your seller dashboard to verify whether your account is currently meeting the standards.

When is it?

This Promotion will begin on June 23, 2018, at 00:00:01 ET (12:00AM plus one second), and will end on June 24, 2018 at 23:59:59 ET (11:59PM plus 59 seconds), for listings on www.ebay.ca or www.cafr.ebay.ca (the "Promotion Period").

Anyone have any experience with this offer?

Could I cancel existing listings that do not have any bids and relist them on the weekend?

I signed up and sold one item just before the 30 days ended. It was hard to find the fee in the ebay menus but I'm pretty sure I'm only charged $1 final value fee....

It's much better to give us advanced warning like this. Takes time to get around to prepare the listing and item. Gonna post some items. If it sells great. If it doesn't keep it for the time being.

Yes it works, they only charged me 1.05 for a 400.00 sale.

Cancel your listings now. Then on June 23rd go back to ebay and click "activate offer". Then go to your cancelled listings and click "sell similar" to relist. Read the terms and conditions because some categories such as heavy equipment and real estate are not eligible for this 1.00 promotion.

Thanks for the heads up, OP.

This is refreshing - generally eBay doesn't give advance notice and just springs the offer with 24-72 hours to act - and often, during the weekend when a lot of people are too busy to be bothered.

Good time to avoid final value fees and unload 5 big-ticket items. (If going the auction route instead of Buy It Now / Best Offer, do NOT set a reserve price with your auction or there will be fees owing whether the item sells or not.)

IKR ... it's usually executed in a less than ideal manner. I wish special offers for sellers could be saved in an e-wallet or digital coupon book for use at a later date (with a reasonable expiry period) , convenient for the seller. In a world with so much competition (i.e. Amazon, for starters) , I'm pretty sure eBay needs small-time sellers more than sellers need eBay.

No limit to the number of items you can list/sell? If so better then last time which had a small limit, I think 2.

you have no ideas how a report of stolen credit card (...) affect your credit. Happened twice in your history, that bank won't issue a credit card for you

I want to take advantage of this promotion to sell a few things I own on e-Bay. However, I actually never used it as a platform to sell goods before.

Any advice for a first timer? I'm worried about the rampant scams and such I read about online and the items I want to sell are valued at around $100~$300.

In my opinion, every intervention in RFD deserve a "thanks". Thanks given until now: more than 100,000

Its pretty safe. I sell quite a bit and never had a problem. Only mail to the address in the paypal invoice, use a postal service level that has delivery confirmation, and be prepared to pay out the ass for shipping anything via Canada Post.

I believe this promotion requires you to offer returns which I don't usually do because people are people. So make sure you insure your packages for the value of the item.

If you offer to ship there then they do automatically.
