   ***Coming Soon: 1¢ Listing Week Sale***
 

Quote
I'd like to announce a special one-week 1¢ Listing Week Sale, Insertion fees for auction-style and Fixed Price format listings on eBay, eBay Motors (for non-vehicles listings). All other fees will be at the standard rates. You can get all the details about the promotion on eBay.

eBay's success is based on the success of our buyers and sellers. We understand this, and we're working hard to put those words into action more than ever before. I know a one-week sale is a small gesture, but I hope it helps.


LMAO - yeah like ebay would tell us ahead of time!

email includes a sign Up Now button!

DO NOT FALL FOR THIS!

The email is actually sent from apache@huda.muntadanet.com

EbAy hasn't been less than a nickel since they were running scared of wagglepop's grand opening.  Even then, they haven't ever had a dime day or less for more than 24 hours.

Bet this year it's a quarter if we even get that. Since everyone keeps falling for the .05c and .10c and .20c days rather than saying screw you we want a free daythis year it will be a quarter.


Thanks for the memory of waggleflop, takes me back to that "ebay mass exodus" thread on stolendollar. Wonder how the exodus is doing.

80% as many listings as ebaY.India, which ebaY paid $50 million for.
