I'm guessing another eBay special sale some time this week. Most likely tomorrow or Wednesday. Perhaps, next week. Of course, I could be wrong. Get ready to list, list, list!

Nah, that's not our sale. That's eBay Motors. I don't sell cars, do you? Our sale is coming. Get ready!

Im am also looking for them to announce a listing sale of some type tommorow Tuesday 11th. I think if they dont anounce it tomorrow it wont be until next week...There sale pattern fell on the weekend this month and it screwed the whole deal up. I spent all week working on this tv guide auction to get ready for this sale..I hope it comes tomorrow..if not im going to have to throw 5 or 10 items up there for a 5 day listing.

Oh well.

Not what I was looking for either magie...grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

We dont know how well the .20¢ listing sale went last month..if it didnt go as well for ebay as they expected...Im sure we will continue to have .10¢ listing sales. If it went well, then Im sure BTPS is right on about never having another one.

If they dont give us one next month, maybe we should get a petition going to bring back the .10¢ days and we can go to all these seller boards and get some names.

I don't list enough (or enough high-dollar items) to really benefit from the sales that much myself..

On a .10 listing day special, I can list 100 items at .10 for $10.00. As opposed to my regular listing fee of .95 per listing for a total of $9.50 for 10 items. If I sell one item at $9.95 it pays for the entire 100 listings. So yes, for me, listing specials (like this one are great! not the stupid 50% off listing upgrades.

Back to Basics - 20 ¢ Core Insertion Fee Sale – Two Days Only!

I agree Magie with your name for the CEOs at eBay.


Throwin us a dadgum bone is what they're doing.

You were at eBay Live, the store boards are stating that eBay was heavily touting stores during the convention..yet, they must've known this was coming.


There will be a mass exodus, which I feel is a calculated move...exactly what eBay has wanted for stores.

My thoughts on this issue is the intentional store "tweaking" which has had sales plummetting has been done intentionally...and as stated on the boards, if it can be proved..that could be class action suit time.
