Terms & Conditions


1. Promotion Period

The £1 Cap Final Value Fees (“FVF”) and free insertion fees will be valid for up to, and including, 100 new listings (“Promotion”) from 18th May 2020 14:00:00 until 24th May 2020 23:59:59 (“Promotion Period”).


2. Eligibility

This Promotion is open to business sellers who:

  1. are registered on www.eBay.co.uk (the “Site”);
  2. have been invited to take part in the Promotion and have actively opted in via the RSVP link in the email or Seller Hub page before 24th May 2020, 23:59:59; and
  3. reside in the European Union.

Participation is linked to the seller’s account and is not transferable.


3. Promotion and Procedure

  • Any new listings which are created during the Promotion Period are eligible.

  • Listings will qualify for the Promotion if the item sells within 30 days from listing. Listings which are relisted or renewed after the Promotion Period will be charged the standard FVF rate.

  • An eligible listing previously scheduled to go live during the Promotion Period will qualify for the Promotion only if you have actively opted in to the Promotion via the RSVP link before the listing starts.

  • If a listing that is eligible for the Promotion had previously closed without a successful sale and is manually re-listed during the Promotion Period, it will form a part of the 100 listings limit of the Promotion.

  • Listings do not have to successfully sell during the Promotion Period to be eligible.

  • If an item qualifies for the Promotion, when the item sells, the full FVF will be charged during the Promotion Period. The discount will be credited to your account within 30 days of transaction date.

  • Free insertion fees discount will be automatically credited to your account once listing is created. 

  • Please note: if the item does not sell within 30 days the first time, and if you relist it after the end of the Promotion Period, or if it is automatically relisted after the end of the Promotion Period, standard FVF will be charged according to the eBay fees policy when the relisted item sells.

  • Items that are automatically relisted through the Automatic relist function or the Good ‘Till Cancelled function will be charged.

  • Your first listing period may vary and is dependent on the listing format you choose (e.g. 'Auction' vs 'Buy It Now’), the duration of the listing you choose and the listing experience you use. The first listing period will be considered to have ended when the listing you create first renews or relists.

  • Any other fees (such as listing upgrade fees) will still apply and will be charged in accordance with the eBay fees policy.

4. Restrictions and exclusions

The following are excluded:

  • Private sellers.

  • Sellers who have not actively opted in to the Promotion via the RSVP link before the end of the Promotion Period.
