3. Promotion and Procedure
Eligible Sellers will be able to view this Promotion in their Seller Hub page from 24th February 2021 00:00:00.
All transactions on both new and existing listings between the date of activation into managed payments, 24th February 00:00:00 and 31st March 2022 23:59:59 will be charged the Promotional FVF .
The Promotion FVF is calculated as 15% of the total amount of the sale (including shipping, taxes and any other applicable fees), plus a fixed charge of £0.05 per order. This will be applied automatically to all transactions during the Promotion Period and is independent of the item’s sale price and independent of the standard final value fee (“Standard FVF”).
This Promotion cannot be used in conjunction with any other final value fee promotion. If you participate in the Promotion, Volume Discounts would not apply during the Promotion Period.
Listings which sell after the end of the Promotion Period will be charged the Standard FVF.
For sellers who have not registered for managed payments, opted-in to the promotion, or do not get activated for managed payments by the start of the Promotion Period, the Standard FVF applies.
An eligible listing previously scheduled to go live during the Promotion Period will qualify for the Promotion.
Items that are automatically relisted through the Automatic relist function or the Good ‘Till Cancelled function are eligible for the Promotion.
All other fees (such as insertion fees and listing upgrade fees) will still apply and will be charged in accordance with the eBay fees policy.
