Looks like eBay’s making more changes to their pricing again. This will be interesting, and I’ll dare say there’ll be a whole new slew of $0.99 auctions. What this definitely means is that eBay will get more listings, and because it gets a cut of the final value fees, the more auctions that close in this manner, the higher their income is going to be. With other free auctions and classified ads websites around, It’s going to be interesting to see if this strategy works, and how eBay adapts to the changing auction/ecommerce landscape and new competitors to the scene.
Starting March 30, 2010 selling on eBay will be a better deal than ever!
- List Auction-style FREE–no Insertion Fees–when you start your Auction-style listing under $1.
- Get new, lower Insertion Fees for all other start prices.
- Either way, pay one easy Final Value Fee of 9% of the winning bid (but never more than $50)-and pay only if your item sells.
- List in Fixed Price for 50Â¢, with Final Value Fees for the most part staying the same.
This new standard fee structure will replace the current “first 5 listings free”–you’ll pay no Insertion Fees whenever you list Auction-style and start pricing under $1!*
