eBay listing promotion. List multiple items for one insertion fee

On eBay.co.uk, there is currently a listing promotion on where if you list multiple items, you only pay one insertion fee.  When I first saw this, I didn’t know what it meant so I just ignored it.  Any way, today I have found out by a little guess work, so thought I would share it with my blog readers.

This only applies to shop listings and buy it now listings.  When you list an item, you can choose how many in that one listing you want to sell.  If you sell just one item, when that is sold, your listing ends.  If you want to relist it because you have more to sell, you obviously have to pay another insertion fee.  Usually, if you sell more than one item per listing, your listing fee increases based on the combined value of the number of items you are selling in that one listing. 

Well, this promotion basically means you can sell as many items as you want, as long as they are identical, in the one listing, and you only pay the listing fee as if you are only selling one item.  For example, if you are selling something for £4.99, you will pay 15p.  If you sell 5 in the one listing, normally you would pay a higher insertion fee,  However just now you will still only pay 15p.  What this means of course, is when you sell one of your items, your listing will still continue.

I sell mainly CD ROMs, so this is very useful and I only wished I new when the promotion first came out.  This promotion runs up until the 23rd September which is day before the fees change.  From the 24th September, this will be the norm.

Just thought I would share it with you.  If you have any questions about this, please leave a comment below and I will answer it.
