eBay offer of no sale fee

[ Edited ]

This is the second time this happened.  I get this email from eBay to the email address I use with this selling ID:
ebay offer1.JPG

 

when I click on the button I get this message:

 

ebayoffer2.JPG

 

 

Has anybody had this happen to them?

 

 

I looked at My eBay messages for that account and there is nothing there.  So what in the hell are they doing?
I have one doll almost finished, and IF I drop absolutely everything I might be able to list her in a day or 2, and she may even sell by the date , BUT I will be absolutely furious if I do rush to finish it, and then find out the offer does not apply for me.

Worked fine for me.

 

If you have more than one selling ID, check to see which ID you were logged into eBay with at the time. Login under the selling ID the message was sent to, then try the link again.

Hi.
Worked fine for me and have just listed one item to make sure I did not get charged fees like in September. I didn't know about it as I had received no message but checked my promotional offers and there it was. Accepted it. Thank you for the tip. Pays to read Community.

I think the OP is referring to NO fvfee's upon sale.

 

I had that offer recently but listings were still coming off my usual 40 freebies so I still paid FVF's on sales. Smiley Frustrated

Hmm, so you did not receive message but were able to activate it, I got message inviring me and then they say "sorry, invitation only" LOL  I am logged in with the right ID, my other IDs have different email

Where do I find my "promotional offers"?

I got that one as well for 10 listings set everything up last night to start and Yes of course came of my remaining 40 free listings. Even showed above them as finishes the 21st. Appears Ebay intends to make you pay to list after your 40 are used up to maybe make a sale which is very doubtful these days.

I think this is a different problem to the one you had. (I know of the glitch, listing fees being charged)

I wasn't charged listing fees but was charged FVF's because when I listed items they came off the normal freebies rather than off the promo freebies of NO fees at all. Smiley Frustrated

My problem was exactly the same as yours.

 

I had accepted the offer to sell 10 items for free (no listing fee, no FVF), but after I accepted it, items I listed still came off my monthly allowance of 40 free listings, and FVFs were still charged. I had to get on to eBay chat and request refunds for the FVFs, which they processed on the spot.

Oh ok.

I was told the items I sold didn't qualify for the free FVF's because they weren't relisted using the free promo listings.

Well I knew that. I couldn't get them to use the free promo ones. Smiley Frustrated

Only some of my listings came off the 10 promo ones and in the end I couldn't use all of them.

 

I'm not going to bother, wasn't big amounts. 

And besides eBay made a blunder in my favour once so I can call it square.

I received the same offer but did not take it up because when I read the terms & conditions it only applies to FVF's and not listing fees as follows - What exclusions and other conditions apply

                   The promotion only applies to Final Value Fees

                   The promotion does not apply to Insertion Fees

So if you did not have your 40 freebies left you would have paid insertion fees the way I read it

The offer I received was:

 

List & Sell up to 10 items for free on eBay now!

Pay no insertion and final value fees on up to 10 items

 

So free insertion as well.

 

Mine wouldn't come of the total when I listed items,instead the ones that relisted from the 40 free promo

 

where given a different number and became part of the promo.

 

Between the two accounts I made 65 cents from one item selling,tease.gif

 

The new 75 % offer that expires today may not include free insertion fees.

 

  • Receive 75% off your Final Value Fees per listing on up to 10 items you list and make available for purchase in Auction-style or Fixed Price format on eBay.com.au during the Promotion Period.
