This one sneaked up on me this month. But, It's time to get your sd98 Auctions ready.
sd98 is a group of sellers on eBay that get together once a month to offer items with a starting price of 98¢, all of which end on the first Sunday of the month. No additional fees are involved outside the eBay listing fees. The sd stands for either Sunday or Savings Day.
The rules are pretty simple:
(for past sellers, please note a change to the rules)
1. You must include sd98 in the Auction Title
2. You need to run a minimum of 5 listings (starting at 98¢ with no reserve) to participate
3. You can have as many additional items as you like at any price as long as sd98 is in the title and the price ends in .98 (9.98, 19.98, etc), normal eBay listing fees apply.
4. You need to have a link in your listing to the sd98 Me page on eBay
5. You can use BIN's if you like
Complete Guidelines are located here: http://www.sd98.net/pages/guidelines.html
To get maximum exposure you need to Sign-Up. This will get your eBay user ID, and a link to your auctions, posted on the sd98.net web site and the sd98 Me page on eBay.
The Sign-Up Page is located here: http://www.sd98.net/pages/sign.html
To facilitate the requirement of having a link in your listings to the sd98 Me page on eBay, numerous pre-made templates are available for use. All the regular templates have been revised to include all the [color=Red]inkFrog[/color] and [color=Red]Auctiva[/color] tags. So, all you need to do is copy and paste them from the sd98.net site to your custom templates section in inkFrog or Auctiva.

Or, if you prefer, you can use one of the custom pre made banners and just insert it into one of your favorite templates. It does require a little knowledge of html, however.
