3. Promotion and Procedure

  • Sellers who register for eBay Managed Payments between 29th June 2020 and 5th July 2020 will be automatically enrolled into this Promotion. Eligible sellers do not need to actively opt in to receive the promotional offer and will be able to view this Promotion in Seller Hub from 13th July 00:00:00.

  • Create your listing(s) in the fixed-price or auction format during the Promotion Period.

  • Transactions on new listings created during the Promotion Period are eligible.

  • A maximum transaction cap of 100 applies per seller for the duration of the Promotion.

  • Transactions will qualify for the Promotion on sales completed within 30 days of listing. Listings which are relisted or renew after the end of the Promotion Period will be charged the standard FVF rate.

  • Please note: the Promotion counter will only update once eligible transactions have completed. It will not update when the listing is created.

  • For sellers who have not been activated for managed payments - A 5% FVF take rate will be automatically applied to all eligible, completed transactions at checkout.  For any eligible transaction that also has a FVF which exceeds £1 (excluding VAT), a £1 cap will also be automatically applied. This means the maximum FVF for eligible transactions is £1.

  • For sellers who have been activated for managed payments – The Fixed FVF change will be automatically reduced by 100% to all eligible, completed transactions. For the variable part of FVF, a 6.9% FVF take rate will be automatically applied to all eligible, completed transactions at checkout. For any eligible transaction that also has a FVF which exceed £1 (excluding VAT), a £1 cap will also be automatically applied. This means the maximum FVF for eligible transactions is £1.

  • The 100 transaction limit is applied to each seller’s account, and applies even if a seller is activated on manged payments during the promotion.

  • The first 100 transactions from qualified listings will count towards the transaction cap, including transactions that do not meet the Promotion’s £1 cap.

  • 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.

  • 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 not eligible for the Promotion and will be charged the standard FVF in accordance with the eBay fees policy.

  • 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 insertion fees and 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 did not register for eBay Managed Payments on ebay.co.uk between 29th June and 5th July.
