Clear out your sports card inventory! Starting August 19, 2012 – December 31, 2012 eBay sellers can list items for free, ie: pay no insertion fees, in the Sports Memorabilia, Cards & Fan Shop categories. This means you will be able to list any of your sports cards free of insertion fees on eBay from 8/19/2012-12/31/2012. This will include fixed price auctions where you set your own price. As well as traditional auction style listings. Also add a ‘buy it now’ option to those auction style listings for free.
Make sure you are eligible:
Check your ‘My eBay’ account to make sure you qualify for the free listings. If you already have the option to list 50 free auction style items per month you will be eligible for the free listings – but will be limited to just those 50. Keep in mind they added the fixed price listing, as well as a buy it now option to the promotion which was not free with the “50 free auction listings” you may already have. All eBay store subscribers will also be able to take advantage of the free listings. Check your subscription level to see your limit on free listings. This is a great opportunity to get rid of cards that have been sitting in your collection for a while. You can simply list your cards at a fixed price and see if they will sell. If they don’t sell you don’t have to pay any money. If the auction style listing is your method of choice then take advantage of this chance to move some cards out the door.
Even if you don’t sell – this is a good thing:
Even if you don’t sell cards look at this promotion by eBay as an opportunity to get some great deals and possibly see an increase in the amount of cards that are listed for sale. You can expect that a good many big-time and even small-time sellers will be taking advantage of this free listing fees promotion. It should give card collectors more inventory to look through while browsing eBay. Look for deals to be had especially cards that are listed in the auction style format starting at $.99.
Only available in eBay U.S. & eBay Canada:
Keep in mind this promotion is only available in the sports memorabilia, cards and fan shop categories and also only applies to eBay US and eBay Canada. The maximum amount of items you can list on eBay depends on whether you have an eBay store or not. The higher-level store subscription you have the more you will be able to list for free. If all you have is the free 50 listings per month then you will be able to list 50 items for free in the sports memorabilia, cards and fan shop category.
