Our Verdict

Deal is obviously better the more expensive the items are that you’re trying to sell. Personally I hate selling on eBay, especially when it comes to selling expensive items because it seems like everybody is just trying to scam you and eBay will almost always side with the buyer.

darn, not available to me. nice offer though!

Yea beware of scam buyers on Fleabay. Beware of scam buyers on Scamazon too. If you have a Shopify site rest assured some buyers will try to Scamify you on there too. If you wanna sell online, scammers and ad spammers are just a reality that you’ll have to deal with.

You could always try Craigslist or offerup, but then you actually have to have a face-to-face encounter with a stranger in order to close the deal.

Anyways Good offer from eBay tho, thanks for the heads up.

My experience with Craigslist, OfferUp, LetGo has been awful.

Very few inquiries or lowballers.

Unfortunately for the number of eyeballs it reaches, there is still no competition for eBay.

Even without listing fees, it is 10% eBay fee + 0.30 + 2.9% Paypal fee.
Hard to make any money unless you paid next to nothing for the item you are trying to sell.

Thanks doc. Was waiting around for an offer from ebay.

I was targeted on an account with last sales in October and only ~$700 in sales during the past 12 months.

I have an FYI to proffer based on past experience with a similar offer. I listed an item during the promotion period of a $5 FVF cap offer and then sold it a few months later; eBay charged me the full FVF, $200+. Nothing in the terms said it had to SELL during the promotion period–I’ve seen some come down the pike that did specify listing _and_ selling–so I called up eBay and got them to credit back all but $5 (as a one time courtesy, they said–but I’ll fight for it again if and when the second item I listed sells, because they aren’t honoring their own terms if they don’t reduce it to the cap).

Anyway, my point is that I kept screenshots and printouts of everything related to it as proof, just in case–the offer’s terms, the email of said offer, my activation of it, my listing confirmation emails showing when the listings went live and that the promotion was in play at said time–and I’d recommend any of you that take them up on this offer do that same.
